New alert sounds for robot

RMT Robotics has launched a programmable sound system for the RMT Robotics ADAM (Autonomous Delivery and Manipulation) mobile robot, called ADAM Reactive Audio Playback.

It reckons that noise proliferation and the monotonous beep of standard alert systems mandated by most safety standards, tend to diminish the alertness of workers with constant exposure.

In order to make warning sounds more effective, the enhanced audio system generates a variety of sounds and automatically associates these sounds with vehicle position or function.

The system includes interactive voice messages and can play “text to speech” messages, sound bites or musical interludes that can be either actively or passively triggered in reaction to a variety of operational conditions and system inputs.
