Sys2K's Robotic Inventory Control 2.0
The second-generation Robotic Inventory Control, or RIC 2.0, rolls around the dealership semi-autonomously, following a path set by pieces of tracking tape along the lot. It includes several ultrasonic sensors to detect and avoid obstacles, and can be remotely controlled through a web interface.
In addition to inventory, the RIC 2.0 can also act as a security patrol at night. It’s sensors can detect heat, such as an intruder on an otherwise vacated lot. If in security mode, the RIC 2.0 will move to investigate, while notifying dealership personnel, who can log online to watch a live feed or control the bot remotely to investigate.
