Transport products with the payload capacity of AGVs combined with the intelligence of AMRs
To maximize human productivity, Vecna Robotics delivers superior automation and orchestration technologies with their line of best-in-class, self-driving material handling equipment. These self-driving industrial vehicles offer the cargo load transportation capabilities of automated guided vehicles (AGVs) with the obstacle avoidance technology, intelligence, and safety features of high-capacity autonomous mobile robots (AMRs).
This unique blend of adaptability and strength can help distribution, warehousing, and manufacturing organizations streamline their material handling and logistics operations by increasing fulfillment and limiting the costliest element of fulfillment – walking.
Vecna Robotics’ autonomous vehicles enable humans and machines to work together in complex, dynamic environments, producing sustainable value for customers through increased throughput and worker safety.
Designed for agility in tight spaces, the Vecna CPJ can improve existing worker throughput by up to 45%.
The Vecna CPJ delivers pallets, racks, bins, and other payloads up to 3,300 lbs. to offer value in lower-volume fulfillment operations. This solution is ideal for micro-workflows, including transportation of waste/dunnage and empty pallets, along with tote/cart consolidation, pick-to-packout, quality assurance, quality control, and other low-value tasks.
The Vecna AFL is a versatile pallet handling machine designed to integrate the handoff of goods with conveyors, wrappers, and carts.
The Vecna AFL can reach up to 7 ft. high with a payload of up to 3,000 lbs. This fork truck operates in narrow aisles, with the ability to navigate and stage pallets within a 9’ 6” width aisle. The Vecna AFL is ideal for end-of-line transport, trash runs, and point-to-point transport of products.
The Vecna ATG is an autonomous tow tractor suited for transporting heavy payloads – up to 10,000 lbs. – over long distances.
The tugger can react to changing workflows, operate in narrow aisles, and delivers elements of consistency to the transfer of material by providing cargo within specific time intervals. By automating transportation and sortation of non-conveyable products, the Vecna ATG can improve throughput by 30%.
The Vecna APT eliminates long travel distances and improves put-away efficiency for lift operators by automating the travel required for these processes.
With the capability of handling double-stacked pallets up to 8,000 lbs., the Vecna APT offers advanced handling functionality with flexible, configurable processes and dynamic route planning. This equipment can clear and fill staging lanes, improve put-away efficiency, and automate non-value-added travel.
Pivotal is Vecna Robotics’ proprietary operating system that integrates with existing warehouse management systems. Based on over 20 years of research and development with organizations like DARPA and NASA, the system coordinates maximum throughput, operational efficiency, and human-to-machine collaboration within your operations.
With the Pivotal platform, warehouses can lay the groundwork for industrial workflows that rely on a mix of human labor and robotics from multiple vendors. Vecna Robotics is a founding member of MassRobotics, an organization focused on developing standards that enable technology from various vendors to work in concert to further increase efficiency in workflows. This focus on collaboration makes Pivotal the world’s first multi-agent, AI-based orchestration engine for warehouse workflows.
As part of the Pivotal technology, Vecna Robotics’ Autonomy Stack is comprised of:
Beacon is the element in Vecna Robotics’ Pivotal platform that drives its continual performance engine. It improves performance by merging software updates, analytics, neural networks, and remote operations, analyzes the data, and feeds it back to the robotics in a cycle to drive a return on investment through improved performance.
With Pivotal’s intuitive user interface, operators can naturally interact with their robot counterparts through sequenced pick lists, SKU images, and quantity/tote information. The system is easy to learn, leading to sustainably high pick accuracy.
Every vehicle in Vecna Robotics’ fleet is constructed with an aerospace-grade, multi-level safety system and is ANSI B56.5 compliant, meaning they are held to the highest standard for unmanned guided industrial vehicles. The robots operate at speeds tuned to their surrounding environments, with 360-degree sensors that provide obstacle detection and avoidance. This combination allows for maximum throughput without sacrificing the safety of people or equipment in your facility.
It’s no secret that labor challenges are affecting many companies. With the latest advancements in technology, labor issues don’t have to slow down your operation. In fact, the right combination of systems can set you up to run more efficiently, while also being less reliant on manual labor.
With Storage Solutions as a partner, we will help you determine the best fit for you operation. Whether you are looking to make the picking process more accurate or increase overall productivity, we have the knowledge and experience to help you get it done.
