For small projects – one room with one robot, for example – or similar basic proof of concept (PoC) or technology/solution, everything is straightforward:
For these projects, we strongly recommend doing the Network Planning and the Full Remote Network Deployment for you. Yes, with skills and experience, you can do it yourself, but the practice shows that you will save a lot of time and money if we do it for you for the first 1-2 installations.
We are open to teaching and educating while deploying the system. Thus, ask questions, learn and implement the next time by yourself.
The split between hardware+software (HW+SW) and network planning and the network planning and implementation depends on the area’s complexity and other impacting factors (temperature range, power supply options, external noise, types of mobile objects, required accuracy, etc.). But roughly, the HW+SW accounts for 50-70% of the costs, and the rest is implementation services.
Depending on the requirements, additional SW or HW customization may be required. We have done it many times. Thus, send us your needs, and we will provide quotations and an implementation schedule shortly. The typical range of costs is from 300 EUR and one day to implement to several kEUR and several weeks to implement.
Typically, the medium size projects take 2-8 weeks to implement, which includes everything from initial ordering to delivery, remote implementation, testing, tuning, and acceptance.
The larger projects require pervasive network planning and close collaboration between all teams involved (you, your/our integrator, and Marvelmind Robotics).
Network implementation is typically done remotely, but in some particularly complex cases, also on-site with our direct supervision or via supervision and direct implementation by our partners-integrators.
