The ExR-2 is the more advanced brother of the ExR-1. The ExR-2 is designed to be fully autonomous and for this the robot has a powerful LiDAR and a AI/ML computer unit on board. The LiDAR robot has situational awareness of its environment and with the additional computer power the robot can autonomously navigate a complex environment. Obstacle detection, obstacle avoidance and mission (re)planning are simple tasks for all this computer power. The obstacle detection recognizes its surroundings and adjusts the robots’ behaviour to the environment. If an unexpected obstacle is a toolbox (housekeeping), the robot can re-plan its route, if the obstacle is a man down, the robot can directly send a warning to the control room and wait for further instructions.
With this situational awareness, the possibilities of this technology are endless. Currently a “skill store” is underdevelopment, which will empower third party developers to add additional skills to the robots. Customers can then select this additional skill for their robot easily in a portal and customize their robot for their facility. But customers can also develop and add their own Artificial intelligence algorithms!
