Coroware Announces CoroBot Upgrades And Options

Stocks in this article: COWI









KIRKLAND, Wash. , Jan. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CoroWare, Inc. (COWI.OB), today announced new software upgrades and hardware options for the CoroBot® Classic and CoroBot Explorer product lines. These new capabilities give researchers, educators and engineers the ability to rapidly develop more powerful autonomous unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) applications.

The software upgrades include full Robotic Operating System (ROS) compatibility and an improved teleoperation application. ROS is an open source framework for creating robotic applications, and is rapidly becoming an industry standard. All of CoroWare's mobile robots are designed to be fully ROS compatible. Out of the box, the CoroBot product line features a teleoperation application that allows users to remotely pilot the robot and view output from the cameras and sensors, whether over a private network or over the Internet.

"Our customers are looking for platforms that take advantage of open platforms such as ROS," said Andrew Zager, robotics product marketing engineer at CoroWare. "In addition to the applications developed by CoroWare, researchers and educators have access to a extensive catalog of open source robotic applications such as mapping, image recognition and navigation."

CoroWare is also offering new hardware options to enhance the abilities of the CoroBot product line. Customers can now add a Microsoft Kinect® to any CoroBot either pre-installed with ROS or upgraded to support ROS.  Microsoft Kinect gives users infrared imaging and depth perception to create real-time three dimensional maps.  In addition, the stock CoroBot camera has been upgraded to support 1080p full HD video quality.

With the needs of field researchers in mind, CoroWare is also offering customers the option of ordering Lithium Ferrous Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries. These higher performance batteries offer higher power density and faster charge rates than typical unmanned vehicle batteries.

These new CoroBot product line upgrades and options are available today.  The CoroBot product line includes a one year factory warranty at no additional charge.  Customers have the option of purchasing extended warranty and premium support plans.  Customers should contact a CoroWare account representative or authorized reseller for corporate and educational pricing details.
