Imagine robotics without coding!

Feb 19, 2021

For most internet users, a world without visible code already became reality. Nobody sees the lines of code that stand behind a website or a smartphone app. These web pages and apps are so user-friendly and intuitive to use that even the masses adapted them. Now, no one could even imagine a life without smartphones and the benefits of the internet, from easy communication to smart home controlling or simply playing games. This scenario we all experience in our daily life, however, is by far not common in the automation industry. At the moment, robots are still being programmed manually by writing codes. This is what Wandelbots is changing (Wandel = Change). We believe that soon, robotics will be so user-friendly and intuitive that people will forget how complicated robot programming was in the past.

By using no-code technologies people can easily build systems anapplications without programming efforts. Users can simply assemble their applications by clicking through an intuitive interface and without adding and adapting code manually. This no-code phenomenon is already quite popular with websites and newsletters. Today, one can easily build a website via WordPress and send out newsletters automatically via Mailchimp within a very short time and without writing any code, but it was not always this way. Now, we have brought this no-code system into robotics as well in order to democratize automation. This way, users are enabled to simply teach robots instead of programming them. This generates an instant business value and provides several benefits: 

  • No-code robotics enables everyone to work together with robots as a team because no one can do their job without the other. What no-code is simply doing, is facilitating the communication from human to robot, so that a worker can easily teach a robot an intended path. No-code robotics brings together the creativeness and application expertise of the worker and the technical advantages of a robot. Approaches for this may look very different – from demonstrating with an external device to building software to drag and drop preset application modules. However, all of them build the translating entity and function as the tool to build up a team between humans and robots.
  • With no-code robotics, companies can work independently without external aid. Quick changes in the automation and production process can easily be made by any worker, as no-code does not require an intensive training but is built for the masses. Although a basic understanding of robots and especially safety requirements is still necessary, long-lasting and expensive trainings can be avoided.
  • Wandelbots has built a robotics platform with which you can easily teach robots using teaching devices and an intuitive app to guide you through the process. The goal is to enable every facility worker, every craftsman, every business owner, and indeed everyone to have the possibility to work with robots, as robots become: 
    – intuitive to teach with the help of an app; 
    – flexible to use, because with the external teaching device you can demonstrate the individual robot teaching process without being built on modules.
    – more cost-effective, as you can flexibly adjust the robot paths whenever you want; without paying for external programming. 

In summary, no-code will facilitate the life of everyone dealing with robots – from the factory worker as operator to the business leader in terms of costs and efficiencyWith nocode solutions, we can make robotics accessible to a far wider range of companies and people. We imagine that someday robots will be common in households like our smartphones are today. By then our goal that every robot in every company and every home runs on Wandelbots will be achieved.  

The promise of no code enables the so called “citizen developers” or in-house employees to innovate and develop software products in weeks not months.
