Bo is a state of the art robot with advanced human-robot-interaction capabilities. Bo revolutionises customer experience across events, hospitality and retail sectors with its approachable design and large, easy to use touchscreen panel and audio interaction. The robot’s main objective is to seamlessly move through a restaurant or exhibition hall and share relevant information to customers. But to do so – without crashing into chairs, tables, walls and people – it is essential to feed Bo with information about the rapidly and constantly changing environment. To assist with this, the team at Botsandus selected TeraRanger Multiflex.

Andrei Danescu, Botsandus CEO explains; “We have integrated the 8 sensor Multiflex kit in a 360-degree configuration to perform ‘sense and avoid’ for obstacles within a 2 meter range. For us, Multiflex is a far better option than the ultrasound sensors we’d been considering. Not only is Multiflex really easy to use, but it provides a faster and more reliable stream of data.”

See Bo – and his TeraRanger Multiflex sensors – in action in this short video.
