Company says new Otto 100 provides light-load material transport for today’s modern factories and warehouses
Clearpath Robotics has expanded its Otto line of self-driving vehicles with Otto 100. The vehicle is designed for autonomous light-load material transport in factories and warehouses.
“The Otto 100 takes the high quality and reliability of the Otto 1500 and puts those advanced capabilities into a smaller form factor,” said Matt Rendall, chief executive officer at Clearpath. “This enables new self-driving services in distribution, e-commerce, and manufacturing.”
The Otto 100 system delivers dynamic and efficient light-load transport in increasingly congested industrial operations. Traditional material handling systems require costly and rigid changes to infrastructure, often cannot adapt to a changing environment, and are not always safe for collaboration with warehouse personnel.
Otto does not rely on external infrastructure for navigation, making implementation hassle-free and highly scalable. Otto 100 uses Clearpath’s self-driving OS to provide autonomous transport up to 220 lb loads at speeds up to 4.5 mph, while tracking along optimal paths and safely avoiding collisions. Otto 100 can be configured with a lift, bin carrier, or cart and integrates directly with ERPs via the Otto enterprise fleet management system.
The Otto family of self-driving vehicles includes Otto 100 for light-load material transport and Otto 1500 for heavy-load material transport. The entire Otto material transport ecosystem will be showcased at Modex 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia April 4-7 at Booth 3771.
