Robotics and Drones
At Algo we open up for you a world of new opportunities.
The world of robotics is being transformed along three primary axes:
increased Intelligence autonomous mobility collaboration
These changes will shape the future of automation and thus robotics and drones.
Advance your business by incorporating autonomous applications
In the event of an emergency, robots and drones can provide an efficient and time saving solution.
Swarms of connected drones can be deployed with different capabilities, including lightweight autonomous scouting, thermal imaging, and real-time video footage.
This can be followed by heavy capacity drones carrying essential supplies in payloads.
Agriculture is seeing increased automation at all stages of the crop life cycle, including planting, monitoring, and harvesting.
Autonomous drones can provide real-time high quality video monitoring of crops. This data can be critical to learn about evolution, increase or decrease of plant pests, weeds, diseases, irrigation, nutrition and vigor related to crops. Early identification of these conditions can prevent crops losses and or damages.
Robots and drones are disrupting the logistics industry with applications ranging from:
- Intralogistics (use of robots to achieve full automation of warehouse workloads),
- Hybrid logistics (use of robotics and drones for workflows between different warehouses)
- Last mile delivery (use of full autonomous drones mounted on delivery vehicles for last mile delivery)
- Sortation (smart robotics used to fully automate sorting operations)
Surveillance operations use drones combined with computer vision, face recognition, object recognition and other tracking technologies.
The combination of networking robotics and Artificial Intelligence allows drones to adapt to their environment and perform many autonomous tasks like following a subject and filming while they move through an area.

People Also Ask (FAQ’s)
What is robotics and how does it work?
Robotics is the field of technology that deals with designing, building, and operating robots. A robot is a machine that can be programmed to perform a variety of tasks autonomously or under the control of an operator. Robotics involves the use of various technologies, such as sensors, actuators, and artificial intelligence, to enable robots to perceive their environment, make decisions, and carry out actions.
What are some real-world use cases of robotics and drones?
There are numerous real-world applications of robotics and drones. In manufacturing, robots are used for assembly, welding, and quality control. In healthcare, robots are used for surgery, patient care, and rehabilitation. In logistics, robots and drones are used for sorting, packing, and delivery. In agriculture, robots and drones are used for planting, harvesting, and crop monitoring. In defense, robots and drones are used for surveillance, bomb disposal, and reconnaissance.
What are autonomous systems or robotic control systems?
Autonomous systems or robotic control systems are systems that are capable of operating independently and making decisions without human intervention. These systems are typically designed to perform specific tasks or functions, such as driving a car, flying a drone, or performing a surgical procedure. They use sensors, algorithms, and other technologies to perceive and interpret their environment and make decisions based on that information.
What programming languages do you use for robotics development?
At Algo, we use a variety of programming languages for robotics development, including Python, C++, Java, MATLAB, ROS (Robot Operating System) for robotics and drone development and Lua, among others. Our choice of programming language depends on the specific requirements of the robot and the availability of libraries and tools for the language. We work closely with our clients to determine the best language for their project.
How do you develop a robotics software?
Algo is expert in developing robotics software. Our teams combine experts in the fields of software engineering, robotics, and computer science. To develop a robotics sofware we follow the next steps:
- Define the problem you want to solve and the requirements for your robot.
- Choose a robotics platform and hardware that meet your requirements.
- Decide on the programming languages and tools to develop the software.
- Develop algorithms for perception, decision making, and control of the robot.
- Implement the algorithms in the chosen programming languages and test them on your robot.
- Integrate the various components of the software, such as sensors, actuators, and controllers.
- Test the integrated system thoroughly and refine the software as necessary.
- Deploy the software on the robot and continue to test and refine it.
Developing a robotics software is a complex and time-consuming process that requires specialized expertise.
Do you offer maintenance and support services for the robotics and drones systems you develop?
Yes, we offer maintenance and support services for the robotics and drones systems we develop. Our services include regular maintenance, bug fixes, software updates, and technical support to ensure that our clients’ robotics and drone systems operate reliably and efficiently over their lifetime.
How do you ensure that the robotics or drone software you develop is scalable and adaptable to changing needs?
We design our robotics and drone software to be modular and scalable, and we use agile development methodologies to adapt to changing needs.
Can you help us with the integration of our robotics or drone system with other systems or platforms?
Yes, we can help with the integration of your robotics and drone systems with other systems or platforms.
What kind of testing and quality assurance processes do you use to ensure the reliability and functionality of the robotics and drone systems you develop?
