Beginning today, UBR-1 is available for purchase. To order your own state-of-the-art mobile manipulation platform please contact email@example.com.
The majority of requests we have had to date have been for the UBR-1 pro model, so we have decided to focus on and ship only one model. The cost of the UBR-1 is $50,000 and will include the newest Hokuyo UST-20LX scanning laser. UBR-1 now offers a higher maximum speed, a state of the art laser scanner, more RAM, and a larger hard drive capacity. Complete technical specifications are available here. In addition to the UBR-1 we are happy to announce that we will also be offering a ROS Ready Computer Package to make setting up your robot even easier. This package includes a computer with Ubuntu and ROS pre-installed, and a wireless router pre-configured to connect your robot and computer.
We are planning to start shipping robots to their destinations in late August. For the moment, we are only able to ship UBR-1 to the United States, Canada and Mexico. We are currently seeking distribution relationships in Asia, Australia, and Europe. Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in discussing a distribution agreement.
