Programmable sound system
ADAM RAP (Reactive Audio Playback), a programmable sound system designed exclusively for the ADAM (Autonomous Delivery and Manipulation) mobile robot. ADAM RAP enhances the safety and flexibility of autonomous mobile robots through interactive voice messages and a mobile “vehicle in motion” jukebox. The ADAM RAP application plays various sound bites or text-to-speech audio based on the particular function the robot is undertaking. All AGVs have a standard beeper-based “vehicle in motion” alert system, which is mandated by international safety standards. In many operations however, noise proliferation combined with the monotonous beep of vehicles tends to diminish the alertness of workers with constant exposure. ADAM RAP’s design promotes a safer work environment and enhances the interaction between workers and robots.
