Seegrid introduces robotic pallet jack

By DC Velocity Staff

Seegrid Corp. demonstrated its new GP8 industrial mobile robot for material handling at the NA 2010 Material Handling and Logistics Show.

The 8000-pound-capacity motorized pallet jack is designed to move pallets to an assigned location and then return to the starting point. These robots use Seegrid's Industrial Mobile Robotics (IMR) technology, which uses stereo cameras to create a three-dimensional map of the environment. These maps allow the robot to navigate a predetermined path in the warehouse or DC.
