Mobile Ground Robotics Line Introduced
Transcend Robotics, www.transcendrobotics.com, Washington, D.C., an innovator in ground-based robotic mobility, has introduced the ARTI3 family of products: ARTI3 Mobility Platform for integrators and developers, and ARTI3 Vantage for end-user applications such as tactical and dangerous situations.
These products leverage the patented ARTI (Articulated Traction Control) technology for quickly climbing stairs and other obstacles without the need for complex software and controls. “Until now, the ability to climb stairs and navigate human environments has been a major challenge for mobile robots,” explains Phil Walker, chief executive officer, Transcend Robotics. “Traditional approaches of tackling this problem are too slow, require complex controls, and are too expensive for most applications.”
The ARTI3 product line from Transcend Robotics consists of two new offerings. ARTI3 Mobility Platform enables integrators and developers to mobilize a broad range of applications in the real world. Use cases and industries include 3D mapping, telepresence, construction management, mining, and manufacturing. ARTI3 Vantage is a solution to bring mobile robots into a work environment. It comes equipped with pan-tilt-zoom cameras, 30-lb payload capacity, IP-54 for wet environments, zero-degree turn radius, and color LCD remote control.
ARTI technology—which uses a mechanical solution for seamless mobility up and down stairs and obstacles—can ascend three steps in less than eight seconds without the complexity of artificial intelligence or highly trained operators.
