RoboteX Announces the Avatar II Robot
RoboteX, Inc.® has formally unveiled the AVATAR® II robot, the latest addition to the popular AVATAR series of robots. Built from the ground up for reliability, ease-of-use, and tactical flexibility, the AVATAR II robot represents a significant step forward from previous generations of tactical and safety robots.
The AVATAR II enables law enforcement to remotely inspect dangerous situations and gather video and audio intelligence. The AVATAR II also features a variety of upgrades over previous generations of robots, including direct-to-unit video and audio recording, a redesigned controller with touchscreen display, increased durability, secure Wi-Fi networking, and upgraded video quality. The AVATAR II also supports multi-unit configurations for the first time, allowing multiple AVATAR II’s to be used together to address high-intensity, large-scale crisis scenarios. With the improved capabilities of the AVATAR II, law enforcement and first responders will be better equipped to remotely gather intelligence and better able to keep themselves and their teams safe from harm.
The AVATAR II robot also supports a larger variety of advanced accessories and add-ons. The new robot supports CBRNE detector kits, advanced 360-degree optical cameras, and extended-range antennas that were not supported by previous generations of robots. Accessories are plug-and-play and easily swappable from mission to mission. The AVATAR II will also support the AVATAR Robotic Manipulator Arm, marking the first time an AVATAR robot has interfaced with a robotic arm attachment. In addition, the AVATAR II will ship with the AVOS Basic Operating System, a customized robotics OS that will provide an intuitive user interface and facilitate easy unit operation.
The AVATAR II robot combines functionality, affordability, and ease-of-use more effectively than any other robot on the market, and its new capabilities will help law enforcing more effectively engage dangerous situations. RoboteX is accepting orders for the new robot starting today. Demos, trial and evaluation periods, and grant assistance are also available upon request.
