Those in the business of selling robotic floor equipment will often cite benefits that include increased productivity rates, reduced operating cost and overall consistency of cleaning performance. Still, an investment in robotic floor equipment can be significant, and understanding how the machine will affect workloading is essential to making the right choice.
Many facilities are hesitant to invest in robotic floor equipment because of worries that the programming for advanced technology would be too challenging to handle without robotics-trained personnel on staff. However, experts agree, for many of these machines, programming is the simplest part.
In many cases, the robot will only need to be programmed one time to continuously do its job. Plus, the technology is moving so quickly that machines coming on the market in the next few months will have even simpler programming procedures and more advanced intelligence.
