Adept Pioneer LX robot, with attached sensors and computers, in the NRG lab

We would like to welcome our newest mechanical lab member, the Adept Pioneer LX - known to us as "Johnson." Johnson is a mobile robot designed for use in non-contact tasks - primarily vault inspection and radiation surveying. One of our newest human lab members, Meredith Pitsch, is upgrading Johnson with sensing and mapping hardware, working towards a fully autonomous inventory procedure.

You can see Johnson in action here.
