CHICAGO, April 2019—OTTO Motors, a division of Clearpath Robotics, today announced the
OTTO 750 is a powerful mid-range self-driving vehicle designed to move pallet-scale loads
which would otherwise be manually moved by a pump truck or tugger.
The 750-kg payload is important because of how factories typically transport materials. The
three standard methods each have different maximum payloads: 100 kg for a cart pushed by a
human, 750 kg for a pump truck, and 1500 kg for a forklift. Plenty of solutions have been
developed for payloads at the high and low ends of the range, but only a few existed in the
"We realized it was a Goldilocks solution," says Matt Rendall, Chief Executive Officer at
Clearpath. "Our customers have been asking for something just right for quite a while, and now
we finally have it."
OTTO 750 is built upon the industry-proven OTTO 1500 chassis, which is already trusted by
industry titans like GE, Katerra and Musashi.
The vehicle uses the existing field-proven self-driving operating system, OTTO OS, to quickly
adapt to changes in the facility. The vehicle responds intelligently to ensure the right material
gets to the right place at the right time. OTTO 750 communicates with PLCs, SCADA systems,
Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) and more.
OTTO Motors is demonstrating OTTO 750 in Chicago this week at ProMat, the largest
conference for manufacturing and supply chain professionals in North and South America. Visit
#S3441 at McCormick Place to see OTTO 750 in action.
