Developing autonomous machines, you know that at some point it needs further instructions, e.g. to get it from point A to point B outside of its main operational field. A tablet or smartphone app may be top of mind. They may work well, until it comes down to functional safety and the demanding reality of weather, dirt, and human interaction with the self-moving machine, not to speak of accidentally dropping the control unit in the mud or on the concrete floor of the service hall – we have all been there with our phones and felt the agony of a broken device. A professional rugged remote control, developed for vehicles and heavy equipment on site will last those harsh environments.
Once you put the machine on the market, you have already gone through all the necessary testing and have all the approvals for what it is intended to be used for.
- Did you include the remote control system?
- Can you quickly put the machine to a halt if anything goes wrong?
- Is your full application approved according to applicable standards?
