Looking to Better Interact With Your Robots?

You’ve kicked off your robotics and automation journey by investing in BrainOS®-powered robots. So, now what? How can you get to know your machine better, communicate with it directly and track its performance? Cue BrainOS® Mobile — a mobile application providing operators and managers real-time visibility to their BrainOS®-powered robotic fleets with easy-to-navigate, detailed performance and usage analytics. BrainOS® Mobile carries a rich feature set including push notifications, machine status, the BrainOS® Learning Center and more.

Now that you know about this critical robot tool that enables seamless fleet management, let’s discuss who on your team should use BrainOS® Mobile and outline best practices for strategically leveraging the app to help maximize your robot program’s ROI.

*To access BrainOS® Mobile, you must have the proper permissions assigned. If you are interested in using BrainOS® Mobile, contact our channel partners, who will then work with our account management team to get the proper permissions roles assigned.

Who is the App for?

BrainOS® Mobile is a robot tool designed for anyone tasked with using, managing and monitoring BrainOS®-powered robots — from Robot Operators to Facility, Regional and District Managers. With BrainOS® Mobile, users can interact with their machines and oversee their robots’ productivity and performance at any time and from anywhere, including remotely.

How to Download BrainOS® Mobile

Ready to start leveraging this mobile application to monitor and optimize your robot program? The process is easy! Simply scan the QR code below to start your download, or find the app in the iOS App Store and Google Play.

BrainOS® Mobile Best Practices for Robot Operators

1. LAUNCH & LOGIN PROCESS:

Robot operators can log in to BrainOS® Mobile by simply scanning the QR code located on the Robot’s UI screen.

  • Unlock the UI Screen> Settings> Mobile Alerts and Scan the QR Code

Scanning the QR code via the mobile app will pair your phone to the robot to review data and stay up to date with its current status.

Pro-tip! Multiple robot operators can pair with one QR code to unlock machine data & notifications across all robotic teammates on-site for that shift.

2. VIEW MACHINE STATUS:

Click into your Machine Card to view your Machine Status and available software updates.

3. TRACK THE STATUS OF YOUR MACHINE:

Check your robot’s progress and location by clicking into the Machine Tab > Location. A map of your robot will appear and is useful when needing to understand where it is during an assist or how much of the route is left until completion.

4. PUSH NOTIFICATIONS:

Open the BrainOS® Mobile app > Profile > Push Notifications> Toggle which notifications you’d like to be alerted for.

Pro-Tip! Pairing with the BrainOS® Mobile app vs SMS messages allows for multiple robot operators to pair with one machine via a QR code to receive important notifications. That’s right — now Robot Operators #1, #2 and #3 can collaboratively work together to clear assists or start a new route!

BrainOS® Mobile Best Practices for Fleet Managers

1. LAUNCH & LOGIN PROCESS:

Coming soon — Fleet Managers will soon be able to log in with BrainOS® Mobile by entering their username and password provided by the Brain Corp Support Team.* Once logged in, add your robotic fleet by searching for Site or RIN. As best practice, focus on adding 10-15 machines at once into the app to strategically view your machines of interest.

*Fleet Manager login via username and password is currently unavailable but is set to launch in May, 2022. Stay tuned for this exciting release!

Pro Tip! Logging in with a username and password provides all of the same benefits as scanning the QR code, but allows you to connect without physically being next to the machine.

2. FILTER BY KEY METRICS:

Did someone say data? BrainOS® Mobile has you covered. Sort by various metrics including Autonomous usage %, Area Cleaned, Route Runs and more! Select your preferred metric to sort your different sites and easily verify your robots are completing their tasks.

Pro tip! Sort from High to Low to see your top-performing sites, or Low to High to view an exception list and areas for improvement across your fleet.

3. SITE METRICS:

Want more information on how a single site is performing? Click into any Site Card to drill down into its performance. View Trends over time to monitor patterns and check on areas for improvements.
