Adept Technology, Inc., Pleasanton, Calif., launched "Acuity," a new patented, proprietary technology for its "Lynx" intelligent, autonomous mobile robots. Acuity is a breakthrough localization feature that allows Adept Lynx mobile robots to navigate in environments where the surroundings are extremely dynamic, such as high-traffic warehouses where an autonomous robot's navigation must allow for constant movement of people, pallets, carts and forklifts.
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 transport in busy manufacturing settings to materials handing in warehouses and operation in facilities with wide open spaces.
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.
