Elevator integration

Karelics Brain offers out-of-the-box industrial elevator integration, empowering your robots to interact with elevators in diverse environments such as construction and mining. Our solution enables robots to autonomously call elevators using custom APIs, navigate within them, and efficiently access various levels, fostering truly autonomous operations.

Multi-floor mapping and navigation

Enable your robots to navigate multi-level structures with precision. From mapping each floor to autonomously transitioning between levels via stairs, slopes, or elevators, our system ensures efficient and adaptable navigation, unlocking new possibilities for robotics deployment in diverse environments.

BIM model integration – mapping

Merge BIM with robotics for efficient construction and mining. Skip mapping with existing BIM models, visualize tasks, and ensure project progress aligns with plans. Say goodbye to redundancy, hello to efficiency!

Map versioning

Say goodbye to outdated maps with our one-click update feature, managed conveniently through the user-friendly Karelics Cloud UI. Keep your robots navigating with precision in dynamic environments like construction sites.

Virtual walls, No-go zones & Virtual areas

Define virtual boundaries and zones effortlessly with Karelics Brain. Outline areas with virtual walls to ensure robot recognition, mark no-go zones for avoidance, and designate virtual areas for points of interest. Accessible via an API endpoint for easy integration into any fleet management system.

Teleoperation via physical joypad

Seamlessly control your robots using a Bluetooth controller, allowing for intuitive maneuvering and speed adjustments. With a consistent controller interface across all robots, users can effortlessly navigate various robot models without the hassle of relearning controls, enhancing operational efficiency in challenging environments.

Gesture detection and control

Detect hand gestures in real-time from your robot’s camera feed, with pre-set commands like “Go there,” “Come here,” and “STOP.” Customize gestures for tailored tasks like “Follow me” or “Paint that wall.” Elevate human-robot interaction on construction sites with Karelics Brain’s Gesture Detection and Control.

Voice recognition and control

Interact with your robots using voice commands, with the flexibility to add custom commands tailored to your specific tasks. With support for custom wake words, you can personalize your interaction experience, empowering efficient and intuitive communication with your machines.

Audio-visual indications

Stay connected to your robot’s status even when away from the main interface. Utilizing the robot’s speakers and lighting system, this feature provides intuitive audio and visual cues, notifying you of key updates such as task status, battery levels, and more.

Human detection, following, and avoidance

Utilizing cutting-edge AI algorithms, our solution ensures the safety of both robots and humans on construction sites. Robots equipped with Karelics Brain can effortlessly recognize and interact with humans, autonomously navigating around them for enhanced safety, or even following them when necessary.

360 Photo-Documentation skill

By integrating the Insta360 ROS driver with advanced task management and navigation capabilities, our software enables robots to autonomously capture 360-degree photos from challenging locations, synchronizing them to our cloud platform for instant access and viewing. Effortlessly gain comprehensive insights into your project!

Device-specific drivers

Integrate diverse sensors and devices with our ROS 2 driver packages. Supported devices include Lidars, motor controllers, depth cameras, and more. Need support for a specific device? We’ll develop a custom ROS driver for you!

Easy integration with fleet management solutions

Integrate your robots powered by Karelics Brain with fleet management platforms. Leveraging the robust foundation of ROS 2, Karelics Brain offers custom API endpoints for comprehensive data synchronization, including maps, laser scans, health statuses, task history, and more, ensuring efficient coordination and control across your robotic fleet.

Want a custom skill?

If you have a different skill in mind that you would like to add to your robot, Karelics Brain provides the best foundation for doing that.

Take advantage of the existing upgrades that Karelics Brain already brings and get the most out of it by creating a custom functionality to fit exactly what you need.

Whether it is a new type of navigation mission, an extra type of data you want to gather from the world, monitoring and searching for damages or other points of interest, we can make it for you and provide it bundled with Karelics Brain.
