Guideless Autonomous Operation

Plus Shadow-Follow Mode

The NIDEC-SHIMPO S-CART is an Autonomous Self-Guided Mobile Vehicle that smartly operates within its surroundings. After initial set-up of the work area, multiple routes can be swiftly programmed via included tablet as changing environments demand. Obstacle detection sensors and auto-off contact bumper, plus emergency override button provide added safety for congested path travel. Cutting-edge shadow technology follows a worker or another object, allowing the simplest means of goods movement in a continuously changing operation. Whether utilizing as a smart AGV or a mobile transport assistant in shadow mode, the possibilities for the S-CART are endless.
