RE2 Robotics and Endeavor Robotics Integrate IOP-Compliant, Advanced Manipulators onto a
Widely-fielded Less than 20-lb. Robotic System

PITTSBURGH, PA  June 29, 2016 -- RE2 Robotics announced today that is has, in partnership with Endeavor Robotics, integrated its IOP-compliant advanced manipulator with Endeavor Robotics’ (Bedford, MA) lifesaving robots. RE2 Robotics is expert at developing state of the art manipulation technology and this integration demonstrates how cutting edge manipulation technology can be matched with world-class robotic platforms to quickly deliver the most advanced capabilities to the warfighter. 

The Interoperability Profile (IOP) standard was developed to dramatically reduce the integration effort required when introducing new capabilities, payloads, and sensors to robot systems.   By developing their products in compliance with the IOP standard, RE2 and Endeavor Robotics are able to quickly introduce new robot capabilities leveraging their combined strengths.   “The direct benefit of IOP compliant payloads is that it enables developers to concentrate on their specific areas of expertise.   The state of the art manipulation technology that RE2 develops can be easily integrated on Endeavor’s robotic platforms, quickly getting the best capabilities to the warfighter. We are excited to continue our collaboration with a leading developer of tactical mobile robots,” stated Jorgen Pedersen, president and CEO of RE2 Robotics.  

“We are eager to increase our effort with RE2 Robotics and we are thrilled to see our commitment to IOP standards paying off,” said Sean Bielat, CEO of Endeavor Robotics. “RE2 has a deep understanding and expertise with IOP compliance as evidenced through their breadth of collaborations with government agencies and various defense contractors. We believe that robot evolution depends upon collaboration between industry leaders and government and their joint ability to work and leverage open architectures.   By incorporating IOP into our products, we are able to quickly integrate the best technology available and deliver next generation systems to our customers on the front line.”
