Benny

The Story

Benny is an autonomous robot for warehouses, currently under development. We are planning to have a working technology demonstrator sometime in December 2018 and a working prototype around May 2019. The robot is using signal triangulation and OCR for indoor positioning and navigation, sensors for obstacles detection, motion detection and short term inertial navigation.
The management solution will handle a fleet of robots to optimize trajectories, predict possible collisions and coordinate the whole activity. The technology demonstrator will be the first step toward a commercial industrial robot.
