Adept Technology, a provider of intelligent robots, autonomous mobile robot solutions and services, has launched Acuity, a new proprietary technology for its Lynx mobile robots. It is a localization feature that allows Adept Lynx robots to navigate in environments where the surroundings are extremely dynamic.
The Lynx mobile robots feature on-board intelligence, work safely with personnel and are ideal for use in large manufacturing facilities, warehouses and distribution centers.
Acuity is available to customers for use in the most demanding settings, the company states. It enables overhead static cues to pinpoint location and allows operation in horizontal environments. Applications can include work-in-progress transport and materials handling.
“Adept’s Acuity technology takes Lynx mobile robot autonomous navigation to a new level,” said Terry Hannon, chief business development and strategy officer at Adept. “Acuity enables a Lynx vehicle to effectively operate in areas where features change dramatically. This is especially important in applications such as materials transport in busy, high-traffic warehouses where an autonomous robot’s navigation must allow for constant movement of people, pallets, carts and forklifts, and shelves being emptied and refilled.”
