Adept MobileRobots will be exhibiting at IROS 2011 in San Francisco, September 26-29.  Come by the booth and see our new research products!  The Maveric RC aerial research platform and the Aqua2 amphibious robot will be on display.  Our Seekur Jr outdoor robot will be paired with an Oceaneering TeraBot-S outdoor manipulator controlled via master-slave interface.  We will be displaying a novel manipulation application by Energid Technologies in which a robotic arm is coupled to a Pioneer robot configured to act as extra degrees of freedom for the arm, all controlled through one simple interface!

We are always happy to hear from customers, stop by and say hello!  Conference attendees will also have an opportunity to visit the Adept Headquarters in Pleasanton, California
