OTTO Motors releases OTTO Industrial API

March 9, 2018 - OTTO Motors released the OTTO Industrial API. The Industrial API addresses the challenge of machine-to-machine communication and full industrial automation by simplifying the process of connecting equipment and programmable logic controllers (PLCs) to OTTO.

As a collaborating company with Inductive Automation, OTTO Motors integrated Ignition software as part of the Industrial API architecture. Ignition is a software platform with a feature set that include the translation of different protocols to the ones needed to speak to PLCs within manufacturing environments; therefore, contributing to a closed loop automation system.

Available now, the OTTO Industrial API connects self-driving vehicles to existing automation systems and processes, providing integration of OTTO with standardized integrations with industry-standard software and protocols. The Ignition server software creates total system integration for the plant floor.
