We are pleased to announce an agreement today with Robotnik, one of Europe’s leading robot product development and R&D companies. Effective immediately, Robotnik is now taking pre-orders for UBR-1 throughout Europe. Robotnik will act as Unbounded’s European distributor.

Robotnik has extensive experience with some of today’s leading service robots, and has been the European distributor of the TurtleBot since 2012. They also have significant expertise in ROS.

Since we began taking orders for the UBR-1 in mid-April, we have been in negotiations to secure a distribution channel for Europe and we couldn’t be more pleased to have come to that agreement with Robotnik.

Beginning today, UBR-1 is available for purchase.  To order your own state-of-the-art mobile manipulation platform please contact sales@unboundedrobotics.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 sales@unboundedrobotics.com if you are interested in discussing a distribution agreement.
