Leading provider of intelligent robots and autonomous mobile solutions, Adept Technology, Inc. has announced the launch of the Adept Lynx, a self-navigating Autonomous Indoor Vehicle (AIV) designed for moving material from point to point in challenging environments.

The new AIN has a unique ability to navigate confined passageways as well as dynamic and peopled locations. Given the vehicle's intuitive user interface, the system can be customized for various applications and payloads by integrators, distributors, and users alike.

Lynx will be showcased in Adept's booth #354 at the Automate 2013 show as well as in partner booths at the adjoining ProMat show January 21-24 in Chicago, Illinois.

Rush LaSelle, vice president and general manager of mobile robots for Adept Technology said: "Unlike traditional autonomously guided vehicles (AGVs), Lynx requires no facility modifications, such as floor magnets or navigational beacons, saving users up to 15% in deployment costs.

"Additionally, the vehicle includes Adept's proprietary software and controls allowing it to intelligently navigate around people and unplanned obstacles, that stop AGVs short."

Manufacturing, warehousing, clean technologies, and healthcare are but a few industries already realizing attractive returns on invested capital through the use of mobile robots from Adept. The Lynx AIV supports payloads up to 60kg, utilizes digital map for localization and manages power and self-charging operations.
