Industrial robot transporters sound like science fiction, but the incredible “LD Series” vehicles manufactured by OMRON are the real deal.
Omron’s proprietary software and controls allow it to intelligently navigate around people and unplanned obstacles.
With laser guidance, sonar, light sensing capabilities and a full-blown floor plan placed in its processor, the “LD Series” transporting vehicle is entirely autonomous, requiring only items in need of carrying and destinations to get them to.
Just a few of its features include supporting up to 130kg of carried weight, digital mapping of its environment and autonomous power management. Not to mention a 19-hour runtime. Wow.
