Kairos Autonomi announces Pronto4 upgrade option
Kairos Autonomi has announced a series 4 upgrade option for its Pronto4 robotic appliqué kit. The upgrade will allow current Pronto4 series 1, 2, or 3 users to upgrade to the series 4 kit, which includes new capabilities and enhancements on previous versions.
The Pronto4 Series 4 can convert any manned ground vehicle – both steering-wheel and skidsteer – or surface vessel into an optionally unmanned robotic vehicle. The vehicle or vessel retains its human-operable capability. Vehicles and vessels outfitted with the Pronto4 become an operate-by-wire platform, with standard tele-operation and supervised autonomy capabilities. Users can also integrate supplementary software and sensors for additional autonomous capabilities.
Troy Takach, president and CEO of Kairos Autonomi, said: ‘We have installed the Pronto4 Robotic Appliqué Kit on more full-size vehicles and vessels than any other robotic company in the world. We want to provide our customers with every opportunity to utilise the latest Pronto4 features and enhancements.’
The kit has been designed to transform manned vehicles for a number of roles, including as unmanned moving ground targets for test and evaluation and training scenarios, for clearance operations where a vehicle is operating in a repetitive or dangerous environment, as an autopilot, allowing vehicle operators to focus on other important tasks, or in mining operations where haul trucks are travelling a known path in a controlled environment.
