Tennant to launch autonomous floor cleaning machines

Tennant Company will launch its first autonomous floor care machine capable of operating in complex, real-world environments without direct operator control.

The first Tennant autonomous solution is expected to be available in North America on the T7 floor scrubber in 2018 with further expansion into global markets and additional models to follow.

Tennant, a cleaning products and solutions company, recently formed a relationship with Brain Corp, an artificial intelligence (A.I.) company specializing in technology for autonomous robots.

The autonomous Tennant T7 will seamlessly integrate Brain’s proprietary A.I. robotic technology software platform, BrainOS®, to deliver a cleaning solution designed to maximize productivity, increase efficiency and optimize safety.

Like many other industries, the cleaning industry is undergoing a transition as a result of disruptive technologies that are driving greater automation.
