Here’s an excerpt. Thanks Mike!

Observability & Robots with Ian Sherman

When I heard about a company doing observability on robots in the physical world, I was hooked–I had to know more! Thankfully, my guest this week, was all-too-happy to talk about what he and his team at formant.io are doing, how it works, and the challenges they run into. Some stuff you can look forward to in this episode: the robot just got stuck in a puddle–how does it know? What considerations do you make for the safety of humans around the robot, so they don’t get up getting whacked by it? And, of course, a whole lot more.
