During the open house the Seegrid truck navigated a large warehouse, interacting frequently with attendees to demonstrate its route learning and safety features. Travel time is wasted time; the robotic truck is able to reclaim time without human guidance.
Unmanned robotic trucks free an employee from 45 minutes a day of travel time. The truck has a robust visual guidance system enhanced with safety sensors for consistently safe operation. The Seegrid truck learns multiple routes - up to 25 miles of information. By inputting pre-planned drop stops, selection stations, and return points, Seegrid trucks complete routes entirely without human guidance.
