ROBOTS DESIGN AND CUSTOMIZATION
Robotic specialists create quickly your own robot
OUR SKILL: MOBILE ROBOTICS
With 14 years of experience in industrial and service robotics, Bernard FROMENT and his team bring you their expertise for any solution of mobile robots.
YOUR OWN ROBOT
Whether it is to create a robot on specifications or to modify one in our YGGY range, our Engineers analyze and propose innovative solutions for all use cases.
As we have already developed and tested most of the modules composing a robot, we can therefore develop a new robot quickly. The cost, the lead time and the technological risk are lowered.
We are responsive to requests and we bring all our robotic experience to your project.
WHAT WE PROPOSED
PHASE DESIGN THINKING
A preliminary phase of design thinking for the definition of the the end users needs, the ergonomics and the functions to be prioritized. The choice of technologies and mechanical/electronic components. At this phase we brings our robotic experience in the definition of the robot envisaged.
PHASE POC, MVP AND PROPOTYPES
Market testing, concept validation, attract investors, fairs, shows and demonstrations, industrialization preparation, refine specs, in-situ tests.
Industrialization EVT/DVT/PVT steps, developments FW, SW, HW, providers and BOM, DFMA industrialization documents, certifications.
Definition of processes for production tests (test benches) and QC tests

Why are we different from another design company ?
We are very specialized in mobile robotics and our experience combined with the “off-the-shelf” modules that we have already developed allow us to develop a robot in a short time. We don’t reinvent the wheel like another less specialized company might.
We know the pitfalls of mobile robotics, particularly with regard to navigation in all venues, and we know how to circumvent them.
We are autonomous in multiple sectors of mechatronics (Electronics/PCB, testing, mechanical CAD, software development, IA, …), which allows us to shorten lead times while guaranteeing quality.
Finally, and this is probably our major strength, we have a “robotics room-test” dedicated for service robots. A room reproducing all the traps and difficulties that a mobile robot can encounter.
Examples of areas in this room: Slopes, narrow doors, floor-to-ceiling glazing, mirrors, thick carpet, wet area, device bases, EMC disruptive elements, very thin legs, railing with bars, stair steps rising/falling, simulation of direct sunlight, mobile objects.
Our clients can see, in this room-test, the behaviour of the robot we have developped for him.
It depends if licensed products are used in the design of the robot.
This is always done in agreement with the client because a licensed product allows to go faster to the result with the inconvenience of a license to be paid.
We always advise to use products with license and support in the protoyping phase and to reduce costs in the industrialization phase.
For ip sum tek products, there is only one licensed product which is the Jack Slam© positioning software. The YGGY© vehicles in our range are free of rights but the source codes belong to us.
We can have the robot certified by an approved laboratory and your product will comply with the standards of one or more countries according to your request.
Example for Europe: The “CE” marking is mandatory for all products used in the European Union.
We take care of following the certification process and making the necessary corrections if necessary.
Comply to a standard has a cost. It can be part of the financial offer.
Our core business is the development of robots.
The mass production is not our business.
But we know several companies in the mass production sector and we can lead you to the most suitable according to your wishes.
Nevertheless, we will accompany you upto the PVT phase where we punctually make corrective actions in cooperation with the production plant.
