April 4, 2017 -- Fetch Robotics announced the introduction of two new Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) to its fleet: Freight500 and Freight1500. Both robots, like the Freight predecessor, operate in commercial and industrial environments where they are deployed to automate the delivery of bulky and heavy loads. The company and the robots will be at ProMat 2017 next week in Chicago, IL. ProMat runs from April 3-6 and Fetch can be found at Booth #N1024.
AMRs from Fetch Robotics are designed to work alongside warehouse workers safely and efficiently. They are packed with sensors and powerful onboard computers that help them to understand the operating environment. Rather than being restricted to fixed routes, the line of Freight AMRs can instead navigate dynamically using a map, allowing them to plan their own paths to travel quickly and efficiently anywhere they need to go. AMRs from Fetch are also smart enough to recognize and react to people, cars, forklifts, and other things in the warehouse.
With the addition of Freight500 and Freight1500, Fetch can now offer its industrial warehouse and logistics customers solutions at every level of material transport. As the big brother to Freight, Freight500 has been designed to move substantial loads yet still be able to fit through doorways and areas that are commonly traversed by people. For even bigger hauls, Freight1500 can support up to 3300 lbs. Freight1500 is the perfect robot for moving standard sized pallets as well as much bulkier cargo.
