PowerBot: the heavyweight of the Adept line of mobile robots

A massive creature is about to enter your research lab, but do not worry: PowerBot is peaceful and helpful, and you will be amazed by its power and its robustness. This 120 kg mobile robot by Adept can safely move a payload of up to 75 kg thanks to its chromed steel chassis and its anodised aluminium plate.

This fast giant moves at speeds up to 2.1 m/s with surprising agility. Like many robots designed by Adept, it comes with differential-drive wheels and casters, and can rotate quickly, make sharp turns and avoid the obstacles detected by its ultrasonic sensors.

But be careful: big robots like PowerBot can also be fragile. Absolutely avoid outdoor uses, especially when it rains.

A versatile robotics platform thanks to the Pioneer SDK

A worthy representative of Adept’s line of research robots, PowerBot includes the Pioneer software development kit and has the ability to perform tasks such as robot mapping, monitoring and robotised recognition, manipulation, robotic teleoperation... In short, it can do everything you would expect from a search mobile robot which would rather be judged by its intelligence than by its strength.

With the adequate accessories, PowerBot can be transformed into a platform with a robotic arm, an exploration and surveillance camera, an on-board computer or a voice recognition kit. As you’ll have gathered, this is serious stuff!
