Adept to Debut Autonomous Indoor Vehicle (AIV) at Automate and ProMat Tradeshows

PLEASANTON, Calif. – Adept Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:ADEP), a leading provider of intelligent robots and autonomous mobile solutions, announces the launch of the Adept Lynx. Lynx is a self-navigating Autonomous Indoor Vehicle (AIV) designed for moving material from point to point in challenging environments that may include 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.

"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," said Rush LaSelle, vice president and general manager of mobile robots for Adept Technology. "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.

Also at the Automate show, John Dulchinos, Adept's CEO and president, will be hosting an Expert Huddle discussion on Using Flexible Automation to Achieve Reshoring at 2pm (booth 208) on Monday, January 21st.
