AGVs

Sees… Thinks… Reacts

The S-CART has a compact, low-profile and scalable design with open architecture for a wide range of applications. The simplified design, makes it easy for maintenance and the extended 8 Hr. operation with Li Lon battery adds flexibility to production. The S-CART contains NIDEC-SHIMPO’s high precision gearboxes that are motion controlled with laser (LIDAR) sensor and can be conveniently operated with included tablet.

S-CART Features 

  • Guide-less running eliminates wasteful worker actions
  • No magnetic tape required; route creation is unbound by taped lines
  • Adapts to its surroundings; frees workers to focus on value added operations
  • Manual override with tablet touch joystick allows re-positioning at any time
  • Multiple integral safety sensors enables it to share the space with workers and equipment
  • Included tablet application provides easy route set-up
  • Top mounting plate designed for simple retrofitting of cages, shelves and similar transport holding equipment
  • Shadow mode follows people or objects; convoy of several S-CART’s to follow one person possible
