Meet Our Team
My name is Xiao and I came to this country at a young age with a fascination for machinery. I was raised frugal by my single mother and we always had enough. My goal has been to study hard, take every opportunity, and create something that is of value for this world.
The team has worked very hard on this, and our product amplifies each human’s output. We look forward to hearing your unique needs in maintaining a clean and well lighted place!
Friendly Robots has been a great opportunity for me to expand my skills and work alongside a great team of industry professionals. I have been involved in the design of our differential drive control, vacuum control system and sensor suite. I have been the primary software engineer for the development of the hierarchical state machine used in our robots.
I have many roles in the company, which include the following (so far): developer of the web-based user interface that interacts with our robot, creator of the mounts that hold our robot's sensors, developer of the new upgraded controller for our robot, and manager of the content of our website.
At Friendly Robots Company, we believe in leveraging technology for the benefit of mankind. We aim to innovate the janitorial industry through our fully autonomous and easy-to-use vacuums. Friendly Robots autonomous vacuums will change how we clean.
