Third Wave Automation to Showcase Forklifts at Modex 2024

Third Wave Automation, provider of autonomous forklifts powered by Shared Autonomy, announced that it will provide a live demonstration of its autonomous TWA Reach forklifts and introduce the TWA Extended Reach forklift at Modex 2024, March 11-14 in Atlanta. With its Shared Autonomy platform, Armada fleet management system and multi-mode forklifts deployed commercially, Third Wave Automation enables warehouse operators to address labor challenges and improve safety, while achieving an immediate return on investment (ROI).

During Modex 2024, Third Wave Automation will put the TWA Reach in action, showcasing real-world applications of artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics for autonomous forklifts in a warehouse scenario. The TWA Reach product line offers users maximum flexibility, with the ability to deploy the forklift in four modes: fully autonomous, remote assist, remote operation and traditional manual operation. The forklifts operate on Third Wave Automation’s Shared Autonomy Platform, which supports remote operations via the Armada intelligent fleet management system and continuous learning that improves performance over time.

The TWA Reach can operate in 10+ foot aisles up to 366 inches high, moving products from staging lane to rack and back with no handoff to other systems or humans. With its adaptive navigation and 360-degree view of the warehouse, the TWA Reach can operate alongside people in dynamic environments without interrupting operations.

The new autonomous TWA Extended Reach extends these capabilities 2x, allowing for the benefits of shared autonomy to apply to even more payloads and racking configurations.
