Autonomous Solutions, Inc. Unveils Expanded Unmanned Vehicle Test Track at Its Headquarters

ASI completes new facilities expansion to grow the testing of mining, automotive, agriculture and other robots.

PETERSBORO, UTAH September 22, 2015

Autonomous Solutions, Inc. (ASI) announced the completion of facilities expansion involving their unmanned vehicle test track.

This expansion includes a tripling of the test tracks and the creation of more realistic urban scenarios with the needed signage and road striping to develop and test new driverless vehicle algorithms.

"This new facility expansion is critical in the support of our new partners. Our proving ground is a test city, it's a test mine, it's a test farm field. We have built into our facility all of these different environments to enable rapid development and rigorous 24/7 product verification and validation testing." says Mel Torrie, ASI co-founder and CEO.

"This facility expansion not only allows us to do more testing, but also provides more office space for the quickly growing engineering team," says Mr. Torrie.

ASI is currently automating testing for three of the five big automotive companies in Detroit and is expanding into Europe and China with partnerships starting in January. Other markets like Mining, Automotive, Agriculture, and Construction leverage the same underlying robotics platform foundation but have different "apps" that are customized to the unique needs of each.

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.
