Autonomous Robotics Services

We design, develop and deploy software solutions for every aspect of autonomous robotic systems.

Design for Scale

Moving a robotics product from prototype to manufacturing is no easy task.We draw upon decades of robotics experience, steeped in both legacy and leading edge technology. Our designs take into consideration the trade off between time, technology and costs; always keeping the business case for a solution at the forefront.

Focus on Quality

Go West Robotics has built a reputation for software solutions that can stand the test of time. We are fanatically devoted to building products without defects. Focusing on quality in robotics is where we can make a meaningful difference.

Leadership & Communication

In robotics, multi-disciplinary engineering teams come together with a variety of backgrounds -- academics work closely with electrical, mechanical and software engineers to solve difficult problems. We embrace transparent communication, working to connect team members and drive projects forward to successful completion.

Selected Projects

The Bossa Nova 2020 Robot

Bossa Nova 2020

Bossa Nova Robotics is the leading provider of real-time, on-shelf product data for the global retail industry. Go West Robotics developed simulation and test automation tools to prevent regression and increase the speed of development.

The Botvac Robotic Vacuum Cleaner

BotVac

The BotVac is a top selling robotic vacuum cleaner designed and manufactured by Neato Robotics. Go West Robotics developed simulation and embedded applications for new and legacy vacuum robots. We developed factory tests to measure robot vacuum motion and cleaning ability and also programmed custom encryption algorithms to securely store and upload log information from the robot. We developed an application to verify IOT connectivity. In addition we designed, programmed and deployed custom test automation tools.

The Pleo Animatronic Toy

Pleo

Pleo is an animatronic baby dinosaur designed to evolve based on its environment and interactions. Gerard Ens, Founder & CTO of Go West Robotics, developed Pleo’s original algorithms for AI. This includes vision, sound direction, IR communications and high speed video processing for object detection and tracking.

Pleo features a camera-based vision system, two microphones, binaural hearing, beat detection allowing Pleo to dance and listen to music. The robot has 12 touch sensors, 4 ground foot sensors for surface detection, 14 force-feedback sensors, an orientation tilt sensor for body position, infrared mouth sensor for object detection into mouth and two-way infrared communication with other Pleos as well as infrared detection for external objects.
