TrolleyBOT, an intelligent robotic platform to assist with carrying, delivering and cooperating!

The TrolleyBOT robot will be showcased at CES Las Vegas 2019, Eureka Park, Booth 50003-6

Occasionally, at the end of the day, it becomes harder for the deliverers and logisticians to carry all the packages they have. This is why the French company Sterela designed TrolleyBOT, an autonomous robot, particularly "agile" and efficient, that responds with great maneuverability and flexibility to various indoor and outdoor applications: logistics, maintenance assistance, picking etc. TrolleyBOT can offer its services in multiple fields. Moving at a maximum speed of 12 km/h and with total load carrying capacity 150 kg (330lbs), TrolleyBOT is the perfect mobile robotic platform for the "last mile delivery", order picking, the transport of hand-tools or even surveillance and control activities.

An autonomous robot for heavy loads!

TrolleyBOT is an autonomous mobile robotic platform designed for a large scope of applications, from logistics & picking (e-commerce platforms, retails, drives), to collaborative maintenance and various control activities. It functions either in a fully autonomous or in "follow-me" mode, by following only the authorized user. TrolleyBOT's uniqueness lies in its intelligence to detect and safely avoid obstacles.
It moves at a maximum speed of 12 km/h and both its speed and the distance of the person to follow is controlled remotely.

With the ability to transport heavy loads up to 150kg (330lbs), TrolleyBOT was developed in order to respond to a wide range of, both indoor and outdoor businesses needs in e-commerce, logistics, transport, delivery, where agility, manageability and flexibility are essential.

The first clients!
Finalized in the Sterela workshop in May 2018, TrolleyBOT is currently being tested at the Airbus Hangars in order to support the work of DSI society employees. Since then, numerous demonstrations have taken place for: DHL, the French Post Office, Airbus Industry and Chronodrive. This small but functional robot seems to have easily established its place in various fields and the requests do not cease to come. 4Mob flexi and 4Mob mule, other products in the range, respond to the needs of the construction industry, the logistical support on 4x4 terrain and the heavy material transport, as they carry up to 350 kg (771lbs) and towing capacity 700kg (1543lbs) (Engie, SNCF, French Army).

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
