What are Neo’s safety features?

Alongside Neo’s sophisticated sensor array that enables Neo to detect and navigate around obstacles, or automatically pause operation, additional safety features are equipped to protect people and property at your premises. They include:

  • Emergency Stop button – a physical button on the rear of the robot can be quickly activated by an operator. This immediately pauses Neo’s operation. The operator can then investigate and resolve the issue before continuing the cleaning operation.
  • Safety bumpers – front and side safety bumper switches detect if Neo touches a fixed obstacle, such as a wall or other object. At this point, an emergency stop is triggered, and operation pauses immediately.
  • Electronic brake – to prevent damage to Neo or other property, if a fixed object is pressing against one of Neo’s safety bumpers, an operator must manually activate a brake release switch in order to move the robot.
