“Robotics Platform” against the shortage of skilled workers
Companies must develop new strategies to ensure that they remain fit for the future. “Robotics and automation play a key role in counteracting the shortage of skilled workers and ensuring Europe’s future viability as a production location,” says Christian Piechnick, founder and CEO of Wandelbots. “Because to stay competitive, we need to use technologies that make us more productive despite a limited workforce. Making these technologies accessible by reducing complexity and costs is an important component of this,” says Piechnick.
However, the implementation of robotic processes is usually very complex: Until a robot is ready for use, experienced developers have to program every work step – high costs and a lack of skilled personnel are currently slowing down the pace of automation.
This is where Wandelbots comes in with its “Robots for the People” mission: On the “Wandelbots Robotics Platform”, companies can develop complete robot solutions faster and easier than ever before. The Developer Platform is an open and collaborative environment that provides application programming interfaces (APIs), software development kits (SDKs), and documentation to easily design and commission robotic applications. Software developers do not need any prior knowledge to program new solutions. Thanks to predefined robot models, extensions and integrations, products and services are ready for the market faster and are provided to customers quickly. Within a runtime environment, diverse robot OEMs in different ecosystems can be centrally coordinated and controlled.
