RMT Robotics Announces Audio Feature for Its ADAM Mobile Robot

ADAM RAP (Reactive Audio Playback) enhances safety, flexibility of traditional AGV alert systems
GRIMSBY, Ontario, Canada - RMT Robotics®, a Cimcorp Oy company, announces ADAM RAP (Reactive Audio Playback), a programmable sound system designed exclusively for the ADAM (Autonomous Delivery and Manipulation) mobile robot (www.adamrobot.com). ADAM RAP enhances the safety and flexibility of autonomous mobile robots through interactive voice messages and a mobile "vehicle in motion" jukebox.
The ADAM RAP application plays various sound bites or text-to-speech audio based on the particular function the robot is undertaking at the time. All AGVs have a standard beeper-based "vehicle in motion" alert system which is mandated by international safety standards. In many operations however, noise proliferation combined with the monotonous beep of vehicles tends to diminish the alertness of workers with constant exposure. ADAM RAP's innovative design promotes a safer work environment and enhances the interaction between workers and robots.
"In developing the ADAM RAP module we not only wanted to create a "vehicle in motion" function to improve safety, but to leverage the power of the platform to enable an effective and unique interactive experience between humans and the mobile robots that they work with every day," said Bill Torrens, Director of Sales & Marketing for RMT Robotics.
To further demonstrate how ADAM safely and efficiently connects people with mobile robots, RMT Robotics will be showcasing ADAM in hall 3 booth #151 at LogiMAT 2012 in Stuttgart, Germany, March 13-15.
