CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–OTTO Motors™, a division of Clearpath Robotics, today announced the
launch of the OTTO OMEGA, the world’s first truly self-driving lift
For industrial engineers and operations professionals who need to reduce
material handling costs, increase process throughput and improve plant
safety, OTTO OMEGA is the easiest, safest and most reliable automated
lift truck for busy factories and warehouses. Unlike traditional
automated forklifts, OTTO OMEGA is the only lift truck able to react to
changes on the factory floor in real time and move around obstacles to
ensure deliveries happen on time, every time.
“Today’s plant managers have to keep busy factory floors operating
quickly and efficiently without ever sacrificing worker safety,” said
Matt Rendall, CEO and co-founder of OTTO Motors. “A truly self-driving
lift truck is a game changer when it comes to process efficiency,
handling costs and site safety.”
Today, the OTTO OMEGA self-driving lift truck specializes in two jobs:
autonomous floor-to-floor deliveries and semi-autonomous mode where
workers can take over complex loading or unloading tasks. OTTO OMEGA can
pick up and drop off skids fully autonomously, receive items to be put
away, deliver parts to lineside, cross dock, transport dunnage and more.
In semi-autonomous mode, OTTO OMEGA collaborates with workers who can
seamlessly take over to manage loading and unloading pallet deliveries,
including onto trailers and racks.
With powerful AI at its core, OTTO OMEGA learns new skills and how to do
new jobs with every software update. The vehicle receives orders,
reports on its status and notifies human operators of issues in
real-time. It is always collecting data from its surroundings and
learning from human operators while communicating with a centralized
control system. OTTO OMEGA builds on OTTO’s decade of self-driving
technology investment that helped define the self-driving material
handling industry. OTTO OMEGA is the safest, most intelligent, and most
productive self-driving forklift ever and with up-front costs or risks,
it has the lowest cost per pallet in industry.
OTTO is demonstrating OTTO OMEGA on the floor of the International
Manufacturing Technology Show this week in Chicago. Attendees can visit
booth #121424 in East Building, Level 2, to see OTTO OMEGA in action.
