You can achieve a safer work environment by letting the robots do the dangerous, tedious and labour-intensive tasks. They come equipped with safety features including an emergency stop switch and laser obstacle detection.
Reduce Labour Costs
Our AGVs reduce non value-added labour costs allowing workers to be reassigned to higher-value activities.
No Need to Change your Infrastructure
Localization & navigation are necessary for the robots to know where they are. The AGVs use a combination of cameras, lasers, sensors, environment matching marks, beacons, and GPS to achieve the necessary results without having to change facility infrastructure.
Our AGVs are powered by MOV.AI, an automation software framework. The intuitive user interface gives the user the ability to easily create maps, sketch work areas and define paths. Work plans can be created within minutes and can be reconfigured whenever necessary.
The TUGBOT has many features that can be implemented in your automated system
Long Hauls, Cross-Docking, Putaway, End-of-line, Replenishment, Staging/Sortation, Pick Assistance, Parts-to-line and more.
Seek and Fetch Navigation Behavior
The TUGBOT navigates within a defined route or work area searching for a payload. When it is identified, the TUGBOT AGV will hook onto a wheeled cart or pallet and transport it to a defined location.
TUGBOT automatically detects obstacles and either stops securely or can be configured to reroute around the obstacle. This allows TUGBOT to work within dynamic environments.
Autonomous charging & Fleet management
TUGBOT autonomously navigates and docks into the charging station. A fleet of TUGBOTs can collaborate to perform complex missions. They can interact with external IT systems and legacy machines.
TUGBOT can follow a path on a map or memorize and repeat a path. It can follow a person or another TUGBOT.
The TUGBOT AGV is equipped with a tow hook and it can pull a payload of up to 250 kg.
