We are
Ubiquity Robotics!

We design, build, test, manufacture and supply advanced, sophisticated, clever, robots that perform a multitude of different functions with  a minimum of additional input from you.

Magni Robot

They come out of the box almost fully-formed. Navigation, computation, mobility and power is already working. Your robot awaits only your ideas and instructions

Our robots are mobile, flexible and beautiful! But they serve serious, real-world needs too.

Specifically, they help people like you turn ideas, imaginings and possibilities into solid reality.

And this matters. Because innovation officers and technology creatives simply must produce new things if their job title is to mean something.

Our robots as part of your company culture

You are a vital part of your company’s innovative and creation culture. Demonstrating that culture in action is the most concrete way of showing that it even exits – and of encouraging others to be bold with their ideas.

Your robots smoothly slot into that culture – helping you show anyone that matters that you’re thinking, experimenting and producing working ideas.

And they're a part
of your own career path

Robotics is no longer the future. It’s the present, the right now.

Producing working robotics applications gives you front-line exposure to robotics technology and programming – and a thorough understanding of how these machines actually work.

Don’t underestimate the power of robotics experience on your resume – and robot projects on your own product portfolio.

A world of opportunities opens up for you with a
Ubiquity robot

Your fully-functioning robot features a flat platform with a carrying capacity of up to 100kg (that’s 220 pounds).

So you can attach any item, tool, holder, frame, camera, smartphone, grapple, attachment, tech item or gadget to your robot. Which means that item or gadget is now operating on a mobile platform.

Your robot learns the environment it operates in and can be programmed to go where it’s needed – and to be there when it’s needed.

From deadly serious ... to seriously cool!

Its versatility offers endless applications – from the seriously useful to the impressively cool.

Here are just a few possibilities:

  • Attach a camera or smartphone to patrol, monitor or watch your premises - both inside and outside
  • Conduct tours of houses, real estate, or commercial facilities - and beam the images to viewers anywhere in the world
  • Attach a camera to watch, monitor, secure and oversee different parts of a work area, production facility or high security environment
  • Transport books, files, papers, equipment from supplies to user
  • Attach testing equipment and conduct tests wherever required
  • Fetch required items from wherever they are and bring them to you
  • ‘Employ’ your machine as your ‘robot delivery person’
  • Move heavy items around your warehouse or storage areas
  • Provide mobile lighting in dark environments - move it at will
  • Relocate furniture or heavy office equipment from where it is to where it’s needed
  • Shift inventory, products, parts and components from one area to another
  • Take cameras, lighting, testing equipment or other tech into dark, inaccessible or uncomfortable environments - pipes, caves, drains, attics, distant locations, vacant buildings and so on
  • Be there virtually: create a telepresence that allows you or colleagues or clients to experience places across town - or across the world
  • Attach a printer to the robot and have your printed material come to you
  • Serve food, drinks - or cocktails - to colleagues, bosses, important guests
  • Move equipment, apparatus between work-stations or work areas
  • Carry heavy, bulky or unwieldy loads along predetermined routes to specific locations

Whatever you add to your robot platform makes that item fully portable – without human supervision.

You + Robot

Be in no doubt: your input is required to take your project out of your notebook and into the physical world.

Ubiquity Robotics provides your robot with the full Robot Operating System (ROS) stack. Millions of lines of code and more than a decade of robot development handle all the routine actions – which means you simply don’t have to do any of this yourself.

So your instructions – just a couple of hundred of lines of code – will make the magic happen.

And it’s your involvement with that part of the process that will give you the most invaluable in-the-trenches experience of robot-building – and which will add a practical, impressive – and very desirable – robotics string to your resumé bow.

Your robotics department

Ubiquity’s robot offering allows you to produce professional grade robotics outcomes but which reduces your robotics department from a team of designers, builders and programmers to… a programmer. 

And not a full-time programmer, either.

So from initial idea to working application we can be looking at days or weeks – rather than the months or years that is standard for built-from-scratch machines.

Ubiquity’s robot team is no ordinary collection of techno experts.

Our people have worked on everything from the first ever Sun Microsystems work-stations to the Hubble Space Telescope.

They include PhDs – of course – and bring experience from Lockheed Martin, Tesla, Huawei, NASA and a wide selection of specialist high-tech firms.

Between us we have more than a hundred years of experience building robots. We love robots – and when you get yours you’ll love them too!

All the help you need

The tricky work has already been done

We programmed the first couple of million lines of code so that your robot handles every conceivable routine measurement or consideration already.

You will add the last couple of hundred lines that make your robot do exactly what you want it to do.

If you – or a colleague – have previous programming experience then adapting your knowledge to our ROS (Robot Operating System) will be straightforward. 

If you’re programming with no previous programming experience of any kind then our tutorials will get you started fast. 

Our forums will probably answer most other questions that crop up while you’re working.

FEATURES

high-budget capability in a tiny-budget machine

Powerful motors and a solid chasis - carries up to 100kg (220lbs)

Despite its low price this machine comes with power and possibility you can’t get for less than triple the price. This robot can carry people - so whatever tools or apparatus you want to put on it the answer is most likely ‘Yes, you can’.

On-board power supply for your own applications or tools

If you put a power-driven gadget or tool on the robot’s platform it’ll need power. Which it will have because there’s a power supply on board that will make almost anything work.

Raspberry Pi 4 running Ubuntu and ROS

The raspberry pi is a surprisingly powerful compute platform and is more than capable of doing sophisticated image processing, while managing our navigation stack with plenty to spare to run your application. Not only is it a powerful processor - it does all of its compute on a tiny power budget - that enables a long battery life that enables your robot to run for hours and hours.

And there's this also:

Localisation

means your robot learns its terrain and its movements from A to B can be pinpointed with centimeter accuracy. It’s significantly more accurate than GPS.

Fully self-contained

no additional apparatus required

Unrestricted freedom of movement

no need to lay a magnetic grid first

Intelligent movement

it gets on with its work while you get on with yours

Collision-free movement

it knows when it’s too close… and so it stops and resumes only when it’s safe to

You don’t have to watch over your robot while it performs its tasks. 
Simply tell it what to do and it does it.

Serious, grown-up robotics adventures

Don’t let the low price fool you. This is not a toy. 

This is a grown-up, programmable, mobile robot with full navigation capabilities, its own power supply,  a huge payload capability that can be manipulated into whatever you want it to do. 

Your results can, if needed, have real-world applications. The more you explore your robot the more possibilities you’ll uncover and the more ideas it will trigger. 

And, in the process, your own skill set, experience and robotics abilities will grow enormously – opening up possibilities and new opportunities for you.

Magni Robot
WARRANTY

Your robot comes with a 90 day warranty with optional free-parts cover after that.

DELIVERY

Outside of peak demand times you can have your robot in 2 weeks – probably sooner.

YOUR OWN ROBOT IS A SMART MOVE

Ubiquity’s robots offer you a unique, hands-on, working experience into the cutting edge technology of the 21st century. Robot projects are noticeable, useful and very, very impressive to everyone around you. 

Once you’ve experienced your first robot success you’ll know exactly why so many other innovation officers and technology creatives love their robots. 

There’s a robot here with your name on it – click below and we’ll get it on its way to you!
