CarriRo is a trolley type logistic support robot with a drive mode that allows operation with a joystick and a karugamo mode that automatically tracks a beacon (transmitter), and is a product that began selling in August 2016. By utilizing CarriRo's function, we aim to raise the productivity of transportation up to about 3 times. It can be recharged for 8 hours continuously and a maximum of 150 kg baggage can be transported,hence the picking operations in warehouses and logistics centers can be improved efficiently when used for conveyance between steps in the factory, belt conveyors and AGVs (automatic guided vehicles).It is also possible to substitute with them.Moreover, since the work load is greatly reduced, it becomes possible for women and elderly people to carry out the transportation work which was regarded as hard labor so far, so it can be used for expanding workers and promoting employment.
