ADAM Mobile Robot Reactive Audio Playback
AGVs have a standard beeper-based “vehicle in motion” alert system which is mandated by most international safety standards. In most operations however, noise proliferation combined with the monotonous beep of vehicles tends to diminish the alertness of workers with constant exposure. An enhanced audio system that could generate a variety of sounds and automatically associate these sounds with vehicle position or function would dramatically improve the effectiveness of the warning system.
RMT Robotics developed the ADAM sound application to 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. Through the ADAM Commander mapping software, regions on the facility map can be embedded with commands to automatically load specific tunes or prompt a series of voice messages. For example, ADAM may play a song in the aisle ways and then switch to a text to speech-based message saying, “Excuse me I am coming through” as it approaches the region of a doorway. After successfully moving through the doorway, ADAM will automatically revert to playing the original song.
