"Adept's Acuity technology takes Lynx mobile robot autonomous navigation to a new level," said
Acuity is available to customers as a Lynx system option for use in the most demanding settings. Standard Lynx systems can already operate in environments where the surrounding features change up 80 percent. Acuity uses overhead static cues to pinpoint the robot's location, allowing operation where the horizontal environment is even more dynamic. Applications range from work-in-progress (WIP) transport in busy manufacturing settings to materials handing in dynamic warehouses and operation in facilities with wide open spaces.
"Adept Lynx mobile robots are providing customers with state-of-the-art performance in autonomous materials movement, encouraging faster, more dependable goods delivery and more efficient facility operations," said Hannon. "Adept's Acuity feature boosts Lynx robots' already exceptional navigational capabilities to an extraordinary level, broadening the opportunity for system deployment into an even greater number of settings. It's yet another testament to Adept's leadership in intelligent autonomous mobile vehicle technology."
Developed for rapid, reliable materials transport in a variety of industries, Lynx mobile robots feature the on-board intelligence to choose the best path to complete a task. Lynx systems require no facility modifications to deploy and simply run in conjunction with the user's existing enterprise software. Lynx mobile robots work safely alongside personnel and are ideal for use in large manufacturing facilities, warehouses and distribution centers, and for "clean" wafer pod handling in the semiconductor industry.
