AUVSI 2015 - Kairos Autonomi Unveils Unmanned Ground Vehicle Technology For Heavy Equipment At AUVSI 2015

ROBOTIC APPLIQUE KIT FOR HEAVY VEHICLES AND MACHINERY

ATLANTA, May 5, 2015 -- AUVSI North America 2015, at Booth #1437, Kairos Autonomi, the worldwide leader in robotic applique kits, displays its latest technology, the Pronto4 Heavy, designed specifically for usage with heavy equipment and machinery.


Equipped with larger gear faces, stronger actuators than its predecessors, and a pathing upgrade, the Pronto4 Heavy delivers the increased torque needed to control the traction, braking, throttle and implements in heavy vehicles and equipment as well as smarter robotic functions such as GPS path following and supervised autonomous behaviors.

The robotic applique kit is platform independent, meaning it can be installed in any heavy vehicle or machine, rendering that vehicle optionally unmanned, which means the equipment can still operate manually as needed.

About Kairos Autonomi
A Greek word that means the right or opportune moment, Kairos is a world leader in Robotic Applique Kits, add-on vehicle autonomy systems that provide unmanned capabilities to current manned vehicles, rendering them optionally unmanned. The Pronto4 Robotic Applique Kit manufactured by Kairos is used throughout the world to convert existing man-operable ground vehicles and surface vessels into unmanned systems. Whether it's government or academic research and development; military training and test and evaluation; range clearance; mining; or tactical military applications, Kairos delivers reliable, rugged, cost-effective robotic vehicle technology.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
