Vendor Profile:

OMRON Adept Technology 

OMRON (Adept Technology)

Headquarters: Hoffman Estates, IL USA

Established: 1933
Public: Yes



Quick Overview:

Omron acquired Adept Technology in 2016. Adept was one of the innovators in the autonomous mobile robot market and Adept was the first company to bring an industrial autonomous mobile robot platform to the market. The Omron Cart Transporter is another innovation from Omron, which enables the mobile robot to engage with, and move a mobile cart around the facility. The cart transporter improves the throughput of the mobile robot system as a cart can be queued while it is loaded and unloaded. Other AMR vendors have now brought a cart moving solution to market as well.

OMRON has extended their product line in late 2019 and 2020 with the LD250 and the HD-1500 platforms. These two new robots have been developed and released since the acquisition of Adept.
