The ExR-2 is the more advanced brother of the ExR-1. The ExR-2 is designed to be fully autonomous and for this the robot has a power full LiDAR and a AI/ML computer unit on board. The LiDAR robot has situational awareness of its environment and with the additional computer power the robot can autonomously navigate a complex environment. Obstacle detection, obstacle avoidance and mission (re)planning are simple tasks for all this computer power. The obstacle detection recognises its surroundings and adjusts the robots' behavior to the environment. If a un expected obstacle is a toolbox (housekeeping), the robot can replan its route, if the obstacle is a man down, the robot can directly send a warning to the control room and wait for further instructions.
With this situational awareness the possibilities of this technology are endless. At the end of this year we will open a skill store, so that third party developers can add additional skills to the robots. Customers can then select this additional skill for their robot easily in a portal and customize their robot for their facility. But customers also can develop and add their own Artificial intelligence algorithms!"
