Our engineers come up with brilliant solutions and need an equally brilliant place to let off steam. Whether they’re compiling code or pondering their next autonomous solution, a spontaneous game of ping pong, basketball, or our bi-weekly volleyball games offer a chance to hang out and let the brilliance recharge. Weekly lunchtime yoga has also been a “new tradition” in our gym, though COVID has driven that virtual for now. Our games are hold for COVID at the moment, and we sure do miss them!
In normal times, when the games are done and the ping pong ball retrieved from the bleachers, the gym transforms into our indoor robot testing grounds. Sensors and lidar are tested and tuned and the engineers process data to provide more autonomous innovation. (Secret: sometimes we leave a few ping pong balls in the picture, just to have a little fun with the sensor folks!)
For now, we’re hoping the COVID pandemic ends soon so we can pick up where we left off – the score was 14/14!
