The United Robotics Group stand 310 is primarily focused on the inspection and maintenance sector – a critical component of many industries and infrastructures. The company will present specific application examples for the first time.

Using the autonomous mobile inspection robot RB-WATCHER Reality Capture from Robotnik Automation and the quadruped walking robot SPOT from Boston Dynamics, United Robotic Group will demonstrate live the different inspection purposes. These smart automation solutions can recognize environments and perform routine controls or monitor rooms and infrastructures, minimizing risks and maximizing safety and availability.

Another highlight at this stand will be the presentation of a new mobile platform based on Plato, United Robotic Group’s first Cobiot. It was introduced in late 2022 for the hospitality industry and will launch at VivaTech 2023 for healthcare sector. With this new concept for the manufacturing, intralogistic and retail sector, the company is now taking a look into the future. The autonomous mobile platform and intelligent indoor navigation system are ideally suited for tasks such as transporting goods in an agile way under the command of humans.

At stand 312 Robotnik Automation, the Spanish subsidiary of United Robotics Group, will display parts of its extensive product portfolio for the logistics and inspection and maintenance sectors. As a leading provider of mobile manipulator technology, Robotnik has comprehensive expertise in developing engineering and R&D projects for mobile service robotics.
