RoboCoaster brings industrial design from the factory floor to the amusement park. This vertically articulated robot has two passenger seats for EOAT
and a nearly 23 ft. reach. It is powered by six electric motors.
The industrial design elements turn the Robocoaster experience into one wild ride. Its six axes of freedom provide unconstrained movement. Passengers can be turned upside down, spiraled, dipped - all at break-neck speeds. The Robocoaster can accelerate more than 1.9Gs and move 16ft/s.
The Robocoaster's flexibility extends to programming. It can be easily customized to fit the wishes of the passengers or operator. It comes with five preprogrammed thrill rides and it is capable of hundreds of alternative ride combinations. This type of flexibility is typical for Kuka
The Robocoaster is the world's first passenger-carrying robot. Kuka
kept safety at the forefront when building this ride. The robot had to endure every inspection and test that Kuka's industrial robots
pass through, and more.
Like other Kuka industrial robots
, the Robocoaster was built with a compact footprint. In fact, the Robocoaster only takes up 900 sq. ft. of floor space. This space-efficiency allows for placement in multiple contexts. The amusement robot can be installed on a trailer for easy transporting from event to event. It can move along a robot track or be placed with other Robocoaster rides.
