Strategic partnerships are the most important means of growth for any business, and it is one of the biggest decisions a business owners would make. After all, the future of their company rides on this one decision. An acquisition strategy is a comprehensive plan which outlines an approach that leaders follow to manage risks and meet defined objectives within a program. The strategy is designed to guide how a program is executed over its entire lifespan. With this said, a Seattle company, WiBotic,  that specializes in advanced wireless charging and power optimization solutions for the rapidly expanding ecosystem of aerial, mobile and marine robots has announced a partnership with Ubiquity Robotics and the availability of a new wireless charging kit and fleet power optimization software for the Magni robot. It is for the first time that Magni users are able to program the robot to navigate to a charging station where wireless power transmission will begin automatically, allowing the robot to operate fully unattended.

The WiBotic kit has an AC-powered free-standing portable transmitter base station that can be placed anywhere autonomous robot charging is needed. Also, a wireless power receiver antenna and Onboard Charger (OC) circuit are fitted to the Magni robot and connected to the battery using supplied mounting hardware. The process requires only a few minutes per robot, making it simple to install on new robots or as a retrofit package for existing Magni customers.
