For small projects – one room with one robot, for example – or similar basic proof of concept (PoC) or technology/solution, everything is particularly simple:
For these projects we strongly recommend that we do the Network Planning and the Full Remote Network Deployment for you. Yes, by having skills and experience, you are able to do it by yourself, but the practice shows that, if we do it for you for the first 1-2 installations, you will safe a lot of time and money.
We are absolutely open to teach and educate, 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 totally depends on the complexity of the area to cover and other impacting factors (temperature range, power supply options, external noise, types of mobile objects, required accuracy, etc.). But very roughly, the HW+SW accounts for 50-70% of the costs and the rest is implementation services.
Depending on the requirements, some additional SW or HW customization may be required. We have done it many times. Thus, just send us your requirements and we will provide quotations and schedule for implementations shortly. 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.
Larger project definitely require very extensive 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 particular complex cases also on site with our direct supervision or via supervision and direct implementation by our partners-integrators.
