ZMP Inc. (Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Taniguchi Hisashi ) is a computer-controllable research and development vehicle equipped with a laser range sensor and a software development environment (SDK) in CarriRo's driving module that has been successful in sales since 2016 We began accepting orders for POWER WHEEL II (Power Wheel Two) Laser Range Sensor Package for Mobile Trolley Platform.
In this package, we installed a laser range sensor with a scan angle of 270 ° as an external sensor in the POWER WHEEL II computer-controllable moving platform for research and development. Viewer and API to visualize sensor data, sample program included.
POWER WHEEL II is based on CarriRo's driving module that has been successful in 2016 and has a large capacity lithium ion battery and can travel for 8 hours * on an independent two-wheel drive type 6 wheel truck using a high output motor is. The loading space is 650 mm wide x 950 mm deep and the maximum loading weight is 100 kg and it is possible to install various experimental equipment. As standard sensors, high precision rotary encoders, inertial sensors, distance measuring sensors are mounted. In this package, a laser range sensor is installed as an external sensor. Linux PC for control, libraries and sample program such as acquisition of various sensor information, motor drive, communication (WiFi) as SDK, it is possible for customers to develop applications freely. The laser range sensor can be used for detection of obstacles, SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) which creates a peripheral map and self position estimation, etc. It can be used for autonomous travel of mobile and development of safety functions I will.
This package can be used as a general-purpose mobile truck robot platform in research and development of logistics warehouses, logistics robots in factories, next-generation automatic conveyance machines, research and development of new services using mobile carts and mobile robots, etc.
In the case of deliveries by the end of March 2018, we will start accepting orders from today with price of 2.3 million yen (tax excluded) as the year-end campaign price (when the laser range sensor with the detection distance of 20 m is installed).
* Operating time depends on operation pattern, load condition of control PC, etc.
