The technology in and around Range Robot


Dear Companists,

Moving about the courses in the region means being seen by many people. Our Range Robot system attracts many curious glances and questions about “how exactly this works between the smartphone and the machine.” We would like to answer this with an example in this update.


Functionality of smartphone and Range Robot system

We want Range Robot to collect in a specific area (a target). For this purpose, we select the appropriate area in the app and issue a "collect" order. Areas are limited by so-called geofencing and can have the most different shapes and sizes, depending on what the specific situation requires. In other words, a virtual fence is set up which the robot recognizes and takes into account. The app now sends the relevant data to our cloud service, where the data is processed and then forwarded to the driving range. The Range Robot system then processes the order on site.

To do this, the rover must first drive from its current position to the target area. The rover uses GPS signals that are transmitted by many different satellites in space and are equipped with very precise atomic clocks. It can then determine the position based on the different signal propagation times. This procedure is also used in the smartphone or navigation device and is accurate to a few meters. A trick is used to allow Range Robot to achieve an accuracy of a few centimeters. A fixed station, i.e. not mobile, also records the GPS signals. The known position makes it possible to detect errors caused, for example, by atmospheric disturbances or reflections. This data is used to calculate a real-time correction, which is then made available to the rover.


Stereoscopic camera

The route is planned based on the knowledge of the position and destination, similar to a navigation device. Instead of roads, our navigation takes into account obstacles such as signs, masts, sand bunkers or even water features. On its journey, the Range Robot "sees" with various other sensors what is in its immediate and more distant surroundings, and can thus also react to unexpected obstacles. One of these sensors is a stereo camera. Like a pair of eyes, it captures images of the surroundings from two slightly different angles. Distances can be calculated by the differences in the images, resulting in a spatial image of the environment. Infrared light is used in order not to be dependent on the available ambient light or to be blinded by it. You can see how this "looks" for the robot in the following animation.



We thank you for your support and hope you enjoyed the update. Next week, we will share a short video in which we present the cooperation with our pilots and the sales start - things remain exciting!

Investments in startups and growth companies offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, investments in startups or growth companies are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by diversifying the amount they invest in startups and growth companies and not investing the entire amount in one startup or growth company. Professional investors often follow this strategy because it causes the risk to be distributed among several investments. In this way, successful investments can balance other less successful investments.

The shares of the investors on Companisto are subordinated profit-participating loans (partiarische Nachrangdarlehen). Such loans are shares in a business with similar characteristics as equity. If the company becomes insolvent or is liquidated, the claims of the investors (Companists) – just like those of all other shareholders of the company – will be satisfied from the assets in the insolvency or the assets in liquidation only after the claims of all other external creditors have been satisfied. Thus, Companists are treated like any other shareholder of the company during insolvency or liquidation proceedings.

The company information published on the Companisto website is provided solely by the companies. The projections made by the companies do not guarantee successful development of the company in the future. Consequently, investments in startups and growth companies are suitable only for those investors who can cope with the risk of a total loss of the capital invested. Investors make their own independent investment decisions and bear all risks themselves.

The investments are provided and issued by the individual companies. Companisto is neither the provider nor the issuer of the investments, but solely the internet service platform.
