Adept Technology CTO to Present at RIA Workshop

Dr. Deron Jackson to Discuss Recent Advances in Collaborative Mobile Robotics, Real-World Adept "Lynx" Mobile Robot Applications

Pleasanton, Calif., September 18, 2014 - Adept Technology, Inc.

(Nasdaq:ADEP), a leading provider of intelligent robots, autonomous mobile
robot solutions, and services, today announced that Chief Technical Officer
(CTO) Deron Jackson will present on recent advances in the mobile robotics
field at the Robotic Industries Association (RIA) International
Collaborative Robots Workshop. The workshop is scheduled for September 30,
2014, at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, California.

Dr. Jackson's presentation, "Advances in Collaborative Mobile Robots," will
cover how new intelligent autonomous vehicles can navigate freely in dynamic
and congested environments without requiring facility modifications.
Designed to work safely alongside people, the robots open up new
opportunities for collaborative automation. Dr. Jackson will discuss where
Adept is leading this effort with its unique "Lynx" family of mobile robots
and present real-world, collaborative applications ranging from simple
transport to complex material movement.

Used in a variety of industries for rapid, reliable materials handling and
conveyance, Adept's Lynx mobile robots work safely with humans and
complement conventional automation systems. Lynx robots feature the on-board
intelligence to run in conjunction with the user's existing enterprise
software. They are ideal for use in large manufacturing facilities,
warehouses and distribution centers, and for "clean" wafer pod handling in
the semiconductor industry.

The RIA International Collaborative Robots Workshop will provide attendees
with a one-day opportunity to learn about key issues in the quickly evolving
area of collaborative robots - robots that work directly with people within
a specific workspace. Dr. Jackson's presentation is slated for the
"Collaborative Robot Technology and Applications - Part II" session at 11am.
