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.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
