Summary: The latest collision-avoidance system
has doubled the detection time of oncoming objects to four seconds from a previous two seconds,
Featuring easy-to-use and flexible route-generation technology and a collision-avoidance system
, the battery-powered robot navigates its environment by using an on-board electronic map, which is created by driving the robot through the travel route and electronically marking the load/upload stations.
