BlueBotics to showcase its robotics technology at LogiMAT after acquisition by Zapi

BlueBotics, a Zapi Group company specializing in vehicle automation, will stage a multi-brand automated vehicle demonstration in the Zapi Group/BlueBotics booth (#6B61 in hall 6).

This demo will include: two autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), two automated pallet trucks, and a larger forked automated guided vehicle (AGV) in simultaneous operation, all managed simultaneously by the company’s mission and fleet management software, ANT server.

Dr Nicola Tomatis, BlueBotics CEO, says: “AGV and AMR interoperability is a hot topic in 2023. And while emerging standards such as VDA 5050 and MASS in the US are exciting developments, these are still in their infancy in terms of the vehicle functionality they support.

“With our unique multi-brand vehicle demo, our team will demonstrate how advanced, the interoperable fleet operation is already available today, with vehicles driven by ANT.”

Zapi Group companies Zapi, Inmotion Technologies, Delta-Q Technologies, Zivan, Schabmüller, Best Motor, and ZTP will also be present at the Zapi Group booth, to showcase their range of motion controllers, electric motors and high-frequency battery chargers.

The Zapi Group team will also showcase its newly-expanded systems integration capabilities, brought about by the recent acquisition of expert firm 4E Consulting.

This acquisition expands Zapi Group’s expertise in the integration, testing, and conversion of drivetrains, hydraulic circuits, and ECUs.
