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.
