Adept Technology CTO to Present at RIA Workshop

PLEASANTON, Calif., Sept. 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Adept Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:ADEP), a leading provider of intelligent robots, autonomous mobile robot solutions, and services, today announced that Chief Technical Officer (CTO) Deron Jackson will present on recent advances in the mobile robotics field at the Robotic Industries Association (RIA) International Collaborative Robots Workshop. The workshop is scheduled for September 30, 2014, at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, California.

Dr. Jackson's presentation, "Advances in Collaborative Mobile Robots," will cover how new intelligent autonomous vehicles can navigate freely in dynamic and congested environments without requiring facility modifications. Designed to work safely alongside people, the robots open up new opportunities for collaborative automation. Dr. Jackson will discuss where Adept is leading this effort with its unique "Lynx" family of mobile robots and present real-world, collaborative applications ranging from simple transport to complex material movement.

Used in a variety of industries for rapid, reliable materials handling and conveyance, Adept's Lynx mobile robots work safely with humans and complement conventional automation systems. Lynx robots feature the on-board intelligence to run in conjunction with the user's existing enterprise software. They are ideal for use in large manufacturing facilities, warehouses and distribution centers, and for "clean" wafer pod handling in the semiconductor industry.

The RIA International Collaborative Robots Workshop will provide attendees with a one-day opportunity to learn about key issues in the quickly evolving area of collaborative robots – robots that work directly with people within a specific workspace. Dr. Jackson's presentation is slated for the "Collaborative Robot Technology and Applications – Part II" session at 11am.
