Adept’s Robot Tandem Co-stars in New Packing Role
Stationary and mobile: paired robot-to-robot interaction on display at AUTOMATICA 2012
The Adept Quattro stationary robot, in close company with Adept’s Courier mobile robot, were on display working together at AUTOMATICA 2012.
The Quattro’s four-arm design, advanced control algorithms, and large work envelope make the overhead-mount robot operate well for smooth-motion, high-throughput applications.The Adept Courier intelligent mobile transporter combines a high payload autonomous platform with an onboard controller and software for map generation and vehicle guidance. Material transports are initiated from a wireless call box located at operator stations and dispatched using pre-programmed destination buttons located on the vehicle.
Working together, the Quattro and Courier exhibit a future look into robot-to-robot cooperation. The accompanying video shows that cooperation in action.
Robotics is causing profound changes in the ways that the world has always worked, with many more changes still to come. Taking stock of those myriad changes, sorting through how each affects the new revolution and our future, and reporting on them to you our members is the job of Robotics Business Review.
"Business" is our middle name; so here at Robotics Business Review, we believe that business, just as it has so aptly demonstrated since 1962, will ultimately be the force that drives all emerging robotics' technology forward. Robotics business and the business of robotics are our prime focus. Learn more.
