Pallet Mover User Directed AMR

Developed in partnership with, the Big Joe Pallet Mover is an easy-to-deploy autonomous solution for floor-to-floor pallet transportation and drop-off that companies can set up and put into operation in less than 1 hour. The new Big Joe unit seeks to revolutionize on-demand material handling across a broad number of industries by offering self-driving technology at an accessible price point on one of the most common material handling vehicles, an electric pallet truck. 

The new Big Joe Pallet Mover works just like a conventional lift truck but features an intuitive tablet interface, Lidar, and camera system to transport and drop pallets to locations autonomously once the operator loads it up and selects a mission. This collaborative approach uses self-driving technology as a productivity force multiplier by giving workers the ability to focus on higher-value tasks or direct multiple independent workflows concurrently. With the ability to use the machine in manual mode at any time, the flexibility of the Pallet Mover allows it to bring efficiencies to facilities without intensive changes to their operations or need for any infrastructure other than a wi-fi connection for software updates if desired. 

The intuitive software package of the Pallet Mover AMR allows the operator to easily switch the unit from autonomous to manual mode by simply pulling the control handle down into a manual operating position. When an operator has completed their manual operated task, they can resume autonomous mode by allowing the control head to return to its vertical position. Should an autonomous mission or action be interrupted by a manual task, it can then be easily resumed on the touch screen once the operator has moved away from the vehicles path of travel.
