Announcing the Foxglove Agent

The Foxglove Team & Enterprise plans now include the ability to run on-robot agents and upload data directly to the cloud. 

Last month we launched the Foxglove Agent, a new feature designed to modernize robotics development by enabling direct data transfer from robots to the cloud. This eliminates the need for manual data offloading methods, offering real-time visibility of robot data, easy cloud importation, and robust handling of unstable network connections. Foxglove Agent helps accelerate development workflows by integrating seamlessly with Foxglove’s advanced visualization tools, connecting with your existing post-processing workflows, or tagging interesting timestamps with events for later triage.

 New Feature: Webhooks

The Foxglove Team & Enterprise plans now include the ability to run automations powered by your robotics data.

Robotics developers can now leverage webhooks to automate workflows, offering seamless integration for immediate action upon new recordings, events, and devices. This feature enables automatic data transformation, event triage, labeling for machine learning, and instant Slack notifications, enhancing efficiency and reducing delays in data processing. Webhooks in Foxglove are designed to streamline operations from data upload to analysis, adding a significant boost in development speed for robotics teams.
