MAKE A RETURN ON YOUR INVESTMENT

Automation optimises the flow of goods whilst minimising damage, time and cost. Its implementation allows employees to handle more complex tasks instead of repetitive processes. Automated warehouse trucks assist with pallet handling. These trucks not only require less maintenance and energy, but they also bolster productivity and safety. In our experience, businesses typically achieve a return on investment within 2 years.

AUTOMATED TOW TRAINS IN ACTION

Click below to see examples of automated repetitive pallet handling.

Automated warehouse trucks guarantee fast and safe horizontal transport of pallets. They are particularly suited to handle repetitive long-distance transportation of goods. This way, your employees are able to handle more complex tasks instead. Toyota’s Autopilot range guarantees a smooth and lean workflow. Capable of being equipped with Lithium-Ion batteries, trucks can auto-charge between tasks. Better still, they can achieve this without the need for personnel or charging rooms – making them fully automated.

Storing pallets on the floor, stacked in deep lanes or block buffers, is easy, smooth and safe with the Autopilot range from Toyota. Automated stackers ensure lean operation and damage-free storage in tight lanes as well as a smooth workflow. Capable of being equipped with Lithium-Ion batteries, the Autopilots can auto-charge between tasks. Better still, they can achieve this without the need for personnel or charging rooms – making them fully automated.

Automating repetitive tasks in your operations – such as storing and retrieving goods – brings a high level of safety and accuracy on site. Crucially, Toyota’s Autopilot range supports lean thinking. Equipped with scanners and vision-aided load support, Autopilots ensuring high productivity. They also minimise damage when load handling and driving. Capable of being equipped with Lithium-Ion batteries, the Autopilots can auto-charge between tasks. Better still, they can achieve this without the need for personnel or charging rooms – making them fully automated.

PRECISE NAVIGATION

Autopilot trucks support two highly accurate and adaptive navigation technologies. These are reflector or natural navigation, which when combined form dual navigation. The latter allows the trucks to switch between using reflectors for one area and using the warehouse environment. In doing this, it uses it as a reference for another area.

REFLECTOR NAVIGATION

This method is where consistent and high-contrast targets – reflectors – are added to the environment. The reflectors installed in the warehouse allow the scanner on the automated truck to define its position. The Autopilots achieve this based on its distance to the reflectors. This technique guarantees robustness, high accuracy and long reach in most environments.

NATURAL NAVIGATION

This navigation method utilises recognisable reference points or landmarks within the warehouse. These include walls, racking and fixed objects, which the Autopilot uses to calculate the truck’s location. Natural navigation is a low-cost alternative for warehouses where the surroundings remain consistent. Automated warehouse trucks navigate the environment without the need for extra equipment. Meaning no need for reflectors, thus avoiding extra cost and installation of additional equipment

INTELLIGENT COMMUNICATION

Automated warehouse trucks are controlled by T-ONE automation software, designed in-house by Toyota. This software works standalone or can communicate with warehouse management and production systems. T-ONE keeps track of goods storage, orders, traffic and flow thanks to its intelligent fleet control and the integration with ERP/WMS.

SMART CHARGING

Autopilots can be equipped with Lithium-ion batteries. These batteries are known to be up to 30% more energy-efficient whilst also reducing CO2 emissions. Better still, automated warehouse trucks are able to auto-charge between tasks. Without the need for personnel or charging rooms. – making them fully automated.

SAFE & ACCURATE PALLET HANDLING

Automated warehouse trucks are programmed to safely complete tasks whilst working alongside personnel. Autopilots feature built-in safety scanners and obstacle detection units, which help prevent collisions. It achieves this by reacting accordingly to obstacles crossing the trucks’ path. Load sensors and vision cameras further ensure accurate and safe load handling.

Side scanners for safe curves at optimum speed

Front and rear scanners for safe transportation at rated speed

Blue LED light warning pedestrians and drivers when coming out of hidden areas

Front obstacle detection for obstacles above floor level

Side obstacle detection for obstacles entering the travel path from the side
