Robots Alive Announces Andy – A Robot Powered by Smart Devices

Bangalore, Karnataka, India, Saturday, November 24, 2012 — (Business Wire India) — Robots Alive, An emerging Robotics and Automation Solutions Company, has announced the launch of “Andy” – a personal smart robot enabled by the intelligence of a Smartphone or any smart device.

“Personal robots till date have been unaffordable due to the high costs of the hardware involved. However, we fail to see that the same hardware exist in the smart devices available today. Utilizing the power of these devices, we can make intelligent robots highly affordable for individuals!” states Abheek Bose, Andy’s creator.

Andy is a robotic device (or simply robot) which can drive around by being controlled by a mobile phone connected physically to the robot. The mobile phone communicates to the robot through the audio cable. Any software which can run on the mobile phone and utilize the audio therefore can be programmed to drive the robot.

The reason of Andy’s existence – the primary application of the robot is to educate young students on robotics and electronics and also provide a source of entertainment for them.

Andy also acts as an opportunity for Robotics Enthusiasts to own and explore their own personal robotics platform at a price that is attractive and with features that keep growing.

Another group of enthusiasts that Andy aims to become friends with is the intended Andy Developer Community. In the coming months developers can create their own apps to enable Andy with more features and release them.

Abheek believes, “Considering the excitement and enthusiasm around robotics in the youth today, Andy has enormous potential to be a robot for everyone”

Andy comes with two models – a Tank and an Off Roader. Currently Andy is available for sale in its own online store. The near future plans are to make Andy available in third party online stores and large format retail outlets. The company is also looking to tie up with partners all over India to promote and conduct workshops for enthusiasts in the field of “Robotics powered by Smart phone technology”
