Seegrid Corp., a provider of vision-guided mobile robots for the material handling industry, introduces its GT3 autonomous tugger. This vehicle employs Seegrid's Industrial Mobile Robotics (IMR) technology, which enables it to move through manufacturing, warehousing, and distribution operations utilizing stereo cameras to build a reliable 3D map of the environment. The GT3 then uses the map and its own reasoning ability to navigate a predetermined path to complete its assigned transport task.
The GT3 transports materials and finished goods without wire guides, magnets, or lasers. It is designed to perform tasks such as pulling carts, delivering palletized materials, and positioning supplies in tight areas. The vehicle is highly flexible and can be implemented quickly and easily with no workflow disruption. The GT3 frees up workers to focus on higher-valued tasks; increases productivity by constantly enforcing the work pace; fosters safety discipline; and reduces labor, accidents, and injury costs.
The versatile GT3 can change and perform multiple routes for first and second shifts and then do a completely different route for a third shift.
