DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Wavebot

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Service Robot

INSPIRATION:
Currently, the robots are emerging in our daily life, since the rapid development of artificial intelligence in the past few years, the robots are getting smarter, which makes it possible to do simple but frequent works during daily life without human control, save the time, reduce the operating cost and improve the efficiency. Our team is dedicated in SLAM, voice and face recognition, and we emphasize elegant design and seamless user experience to ensure the best robot in the market.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Wavebot is an intelligent service robot.It is equipped with advanced SLAM(Simultaneous localization and mapping) technology, accurate face recognition, natural voice interaction and video cloud integration. Wavebot can be a fully autonomous assistantin offices, libraries, museums and stores, working as front desk receptionist, meeting and telepresence assistant and security guard.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Wavebot is intelligent in many ways. It moves, sees, listens, thinks and speaks, just like human beings. Wavebot runs fully autonomously, however it also can be controlled via control pad, smartphone application, web control panel and voice. It works as front desk receptionist, meeting assistant and security guard. If Wavebot is deployed and operates every day in the office, it will significantly reduce the cost, improve the efficiency and bring intelligence to your company.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in November 2015 in Shenzhen and finished in December 2016 in Beijing, and was exhibited in CES in Las Vegas in January 2017.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
During the design process, we used foam board to lay out the design at the early phase, then using the CAD tools to do the surface design and mechanical design. We have experimented few prototypes with CNC and 3D printing process to verify our design and mechanism. While developing the innovative and elegant shape of this robot, we went through lots of challenges such as the curved charging interface, dual-layer structure for simple assembly and so on.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
450 mm x 510 mm x 1245 mm

TAGS:
Artificial Intelligence, Mobile, Robot, Service, Robotic

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Type of research: Quantitative and Qualitative research, hundreds of field interviews and video recording for weeks. Research objectives: Clarify the market trends Discover the basic needs in offices, retail stores and libraries. Identify simple but frequent tasks that is suitable for robots to accomplish. Identify the proper target user and market to involve in. Insights: It is a big trend to reduce cost and improve efficiency for enterprises via robots. Reasons: 1.Labor cost increases rapidly in China. 2.Low skilled and high-frequency jobs can be accomplished by robots 3.Service robot market is up to $50 Billion in 2017. 4.Existing enterprise robots are too much manual intervention, high price and unfriendly user experiences.

CHALLENGE:
Currently the service robots are more like a Base + iPad solution, and they are all bulky. The first challenge in design is to create an elegant yet futuristic look to fit in its role and the relevant environment. To make the design elegant and neat, we went through over 10prototypes, 3 stages of CAD model, tested out 5 different designs, overcame over 50 design/ mechanical challenges, we spent 2 months in the factory to find out the best color, material and finish combination to showcase our original design intent. Then came out with a neat, elegant yet futuristic look.
