The company's Sunrise controller interfaces with the robot and enables easy extension with special equipment and sensors. The mobile platform enables unrestricted motion in any direction with a positioning accuracy of up to ±5 mm, the company says. It meets required safety standards for autonomous guided vehicles and accom- modates payloads of up to 1,500 kg.
