The first demo day is scheduled for March 5th, with a repeat event on March 6th, 2014.

Pleasanton, Calif., February 27, 2014 - Adept Technology, Inc.

(Nasdaq:ADEP), a leading provider of intelligent robots, autonomous mobile
solutions and services, today announced that it will host two New Product
and Technology Demo Day events at its Application and Demo Center in
Amherst, New Hampshire. The first demo day is scheduled for March 5th, with
a repeat event on March 6th, 2014. The interactive program will give
participants a chance to learn about Adept's state-of-the-art technology
portfolio, see the company's latest product demonstrations, and discuss
their specific automation needs with Adept's applications engineering
specialists.

"We're looking forward to hosting the New Product and Technology Demo Days
in Amherst, reinforcing our commitment to the robot industry located in New
England and the tri-state area," said Merrill Apter, Adept vice president of
North America sales. "It's an ideal opportunity for robotics end users,
integrators, and those responsible for determining a factory automation
strategy for their business, to learn about our new products and
technologies, to see in person what these unique tools can do, and to get
feedback on their automation plans and projects from our experienced team."

Adept's demo days will include presentations from the company's applications
engineering team on several innovative products and technologies, hands-on
technology demos, and opportunities for networking. Among the technologies
covered will be the company's "ePLC" robots, designed to significantly
streamline system programming and reduce necessary hardware; and Adept's
unique self-navigating "Lynx" mobile robot platform for applications such as
material movement in warehouses and logistics applications.

Adept's Application and Demo Center in Amherst is the newest addition to the
company's technical centers located worldwide. The facility allows end users
and integrators to prove out their automation applications using Adept
robots, advanced vision guidance, and associated technologies. Other Adept
facilities are located in California, Germany, France, Singapore and China.

Registration for the two New Product and Technology Demo Day events is by
invitation only. For more information on these regional events, please

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
