Robotics projects are complex and involves integrating software, mechanical, hardware and third party Artificial intelligence modules. Most of the crowdfunded robotics projects are delayed - and this is one of the reasons we provide only estimated shipping dates. Aido is a very complex product, However, we have made great progress as seen by the recent investor confidence, and product progress.
We have a significant number of full time employees. Close to 15 are working with our Bangalore ( India ) based research and development center. This is a competitive advantage for us. Allowing us to pivot, rapidly come out with product iterations while keeping the Burn Rate low. Our India based center recruits only the best with experience and background in core Robotics.
We do have a single working version of the mobility unit that was developed ( As second generation ). We are still ironing out the issues and expect this to get ready only by First Quarter of 2018. However, we have completed detailed mathematical modeling for the component.
We are using the date that perks officially sold out as the final date of our initial Crowdfunding experiences. This date was provided by IndieGoGo, the funds were collected in Q1 & Q2 of 2016.
