Skypod by Exotec - Autonomous Shuttle-Robots

Autonomous shuttle robot systems integrate two functions. They combine the possibility of free navigation at ground level and vertical operation in the rack. With this double function, the shuttles handle the storage and retrieval directly in the rack as well as the delivery of containers to the order picking workstations.

Exotec Shuttle-Robots

Two functions in one

Transport on the ground & storage and retrieval in the rack 
Thereby, they offer a real alternative to conventional shuttle systems as the statically installed conveyor pre-zone and the shuttle lifters are no longer necessary. Typical fields of application of this shuttle system are multi-channel retailers and e-commerce warehouses, which require flexible, scalable systems due to a highly fluctuating order situation. The routes are coordinated centrally by artificial intelligence and the shuttles are able to recognize each other. They are operated by lithium batteries. These autonomous shuttle systems rather cover the medium and high performance range. They can be very fast, reaching a speed of up to 4 m/s.
