FORT Robotics (Philadelphia, PA) introduces the Safe Remote Control Pro. This remote control enables users to command multiple machines, such as autonomous robots and heavy equipment, from a safe distance while also offering a built-in SIL 3–certified emergency stop button.
The rugged gaming-style controller can be paired with up to 30 machines, giving users the ability to manage a fleet of machines with a single remote control. The Safe Remote Control Pro can be used to take temporary control of autonomous vehicles, enabling users to move vehicles to and from their missions and easily switch between manual and autonomous mode.
The remote can be used with robots in warehousing and manufacturing as well as heavy machinery in agriculture, construction, mining and more. Remote operation reduces the risk of injuries around dangerous machinery in these industries. The easy-to-use controller helps operators boost productivity, minimize the need for additional personnel, and prevent unplanned downtime.
