Emergency Stop

The Otonos Emergency Stop provides redundant safety at a distance


ARA’s E-Stop is essential equipment for autonomous or optionally-manned equipment. Accidents happen, so when operators get into a situation they don’t like, ARA’s E-Stop will stop the machine in its tracks, at any distance the robotic vehicle can operate. Entirely redundant, the system does not rely upon the platform or any onboard robotics to stop the system. Robotic vehicle shuts down and stops when the button is depressed.

ARA’s E-Stop is also a key piece of safety equipment in dangerous fields such as mining, forestry, and environmental remediation for manned equipment. Spotters, supervisors, or operators can shut equipment down when problems occur, and before accidents happen. A full list of features include:

  • Provides the safety of an emergency stop at distance
  • Creates an entirely redundant safety system
  • Radio system independent of any robotics or onboard equipment
