+ Autonomous system increases picking performance by up to 30%

+ Saves manual energy: goods only require transportation by hand over short distances

+ Bespoke order picking: truck adapts easily to specific operator preferences

 

The iGo neo CX 20 follows the operator at all times during the working cycle and will move to the first or second pallet position as desired. The truck always allows the operator to walk in front and autonomously maintains an operator-specified distance of at least 50 cm from the rack or pallet position. Because the autonomous assistance takes control of driving and steering, the operator is able to concentrate fully on the task at hand. This results in a significant increase in picking performance and avoids picking errors. Safety is ensured by the motion tracking sensors, which can differentiate between the operator, other people and obstacles.

The truck either drives around obstacles or, if the way is completely blocked, stops. If a slower truck is driving ahead or a queue forms, the speed is adjusted accordingly. Once the way is clear again, the iGo neo CX 20 will autonomously start driving. It recognises and passes by empty racks. Crossroads are only crossed autonomously after approval by the driver. The operator is free to choose whether the device should run in manual or autonomous mode. An LED signal shows whether the truck is in autonomous or manual operation mode. Another optical signal shows the orientation of the iGo neo CX 20.
