ePicker Enters Robotic Market with Lift Truck Powered by Anantak

ePicker, a material handling equipment provider, has teamed with Anantak, a robotics company, to power warehouse vehicles such as pallet movers, tuggers, stackers, and forklifts.

ePicker’s autonomous pallet mover, powered by Anantak, aims to make warehouse automation attainable and widely accessible. The first vehicle from the collaboration uses a combination of lasers, 3D cameras, vehicle telemetry, as well as a proprietary self-driving software package to allow the unit to complement existing workflows instead of replacing them.

The autonomous pallet mover delivers its value like most mobile robots by taking on the task of shuttling material long distances, but sets itself apart with on-board intelligence and how little effort is needed to deploy, maintain, and scale for any operation. Units will be available for delivery in August, but ePicker is actively taking orders at MODEX.

Traditionally, when mobile robotics are deployed, there are significant changes required to existing processes and infrastructure to make them run seamlessly. The autonomous pallet mover allows for rapid adoption by intentionally keeping a human in the loop at the front-end of the process, and then engaging onboard autonomy to allow for safe, reliable transport and drop off to destinations within a facility.

This strategy allows for straightforward implementation that lets facility leaders quickly automate simple workflows. As workflows get more complex, or the number of robots increases, the fleet management capabilities expand, including a cloud-based platform that allows for remote support and over-the-air updates to keep operations running smoothly. ePicker’s autonomous pallet mover also supports its customers by ensuring extended costs are limited by offering simple repair and service solutions that are easy to implement and cost effective.

Features of the autonomous pallet mover include manual pick, autonomous drop off, in-line or in-grid mapping that can be done by the user and obstacle avoidance. The first autonomous pallet mover can automatically map any footprint changes and includes onboard diagnostics, showing users step-by-step how to solve serviceability issues on-screen.
