Automate 2015 - Adept Technology Launches New Fleet Management System for Lynx Mobile Robots
System Controls Up to 100 Robots for Large Deployments in Manufacturing, Warehousing/Logistics and Semiconductor
Pleasanton, Calif., March 12, 2015 - Adept Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:ADEP), a
services, today announced that it has launched Lynx Enterprise Manager 1100,
a new fleet management system for Adept's Lynx autonomous intelligent
vehicles (AIVs). Lynx Enterprise Manager 1100 controls all aspects of
operating a fleet of Lynx mobile robots, coordinating as many as 100
vehicles simultaneously to enable large-scale deployments for
warehousing/logistics, manufacturing and semiconductor applications.
"Adept Lynx AIVs are an effective, autonomous method for moving goods
throughout large warehouses and factories, improving efficiency and
flexibility, and lowering costs," said Michael Oitzman, senior product line
manager of Mobile Robots at Adept. "Lynx Enterprise Manager 1100 is a
powerful, easy-to-deploy platform that can manage every aspect of a
substantial Lynx mobile robot workforce."
Lynx AIVs provide rapid, traceable material movement in highly dynamic
environments such as warehouses, distribution centers and factories. Unlike
traditional AGV systems, Lynx vehicles intelligently self-navigate, avoiding
obstacles and selecting the best path to complete a task. The Lynx
Enterprise Manager 1100 is a powerful tool for controlling a Lynx fleet,
coordinating vehicle configuration, task allocation and traffic control, and
interfacing with a user's existing enterprise management system.

industrial and mobile robot technologies, at Automate 2015 booth 1060 on
March 23-26 at McCormick Place North in Chicago, Illinois. Attendees can
