Product Platform Roadmap
Here is our product platform roadmap with a vision of offering integrated aerial-ground mobility systems. The stationary robot is available for sale now. We are currently pilot testing the stationary robots with customers with successful drops up to 1,000 ft. The mobile robots are being tested in the lab to walk along side or in front of first responders and are capable of walking over rough terrain. We are putting rotors inside another tensegrity robot to create an aerial/ ground hybrid system that can perform low level aerial flying or maneuvers, such as hopping over a fence. Next in line is the development of a floating robot as requested by our partners in flood-prone areas.
Field testing rapidly deployable sensor/communication robots with first responders and military.
Ground-mobile robots being tested in the lab now and targeted for commercial sales this year.
Aerial Hybrid Mobility
Aerial/ground hybrid system with rotors being developed in the lab now.
In Development: Mobile Robot
The mobile robot sensor platform is in development and being tested in the lab now. These mobile robots could be remotely controlled from a safe distance or could walk along side or in front of first responders. They are capable of movement along rugged terrain or slopes. Current engineering efforts include increasing the battery life of the mobile payload, maximizing its capacity, optimizing and improving onboard data analytics capabilities.
Paired-Cable Schema Is Over Five Times More Efficient Than 24-Cable Actuation

In Development: Rotor Robot
In collaboration with Dr. Mark Mueller, UC Berkeley, we are adding rotors to the structure to develop an impact-resistant aerial/ ground hybrid system that can perform low level aerial maneuvers, such as hopping over a fence or flight in enclosed spaces.
In Development: Thermal Payload
A new sensor payload to be carried by the Stationary, Mobile, and Rotor Robots. Solution provides on-board steerable thermal cameras in addition to daytime cameras. Full camera frames can also be transmitted over mesh network. Robot can run real time analytics on the thermal camera data, to provide alerts in case of a newly-started fire or equipment failures.
In Development: Third-Party Robot Payload
Squishy Robotics will be able to rapidly deliver small third-party robots equipped with sensors to provide more mobility options on the ground.
As an emerging technology, there are a wide range of use cases and capabilities. Contact us to discuss your use cases or applications.
