QinetiQ North America launched a commercial robotic system for select equipment.
Making its World of Concrete debut on a Bobcat E35 in Las Vegas this week, the DriveRobotics system is an add-on applique kit that enables operators to convert to unmanned operations when workers may face hazardous situations. The system can be installed on both new and existing fleets.
“Having remote-control capabilities enables our customers to use machines in applications that aren’t otherwise possible, or that become easier without utilizing an operator,” says Laura Ness Owens of Bobcat Company. “Joint development of this system has been a good partnership.”
