The logistics support robot CarriRo® is a product developed by applying ZMP's Autonomous Driving technology. In the logistics industry and the manufacturing industry, where labor is rapidly deficient due to the declining birthrate and aging population, we are developing products that meet the needs of labor saving and efficiency by reducing the burden of transportation work. Currently, it has been introduced to more than 150 companies since the start of sales, and has been introduced in various fields, such as distribution warehouses and factories, as well as the service industry such as hotels, stations, and airports.

On the day, you can also see CarriRo® physical exhibits and demonstrations at the ZMP booth and CarriRo® partner booth. By visiting each booth and listening to the explanations, you can actually experience the high versatility and expandability which are the major features of the CarriRo® series at the venue.

■ What is the "versatility" of CarriRo®?
CarriRo® makes the whole series versatile. In other words, it is positioned as an important concept to provide products that can respond to all transport situations of customers. In the future, when automatic conveyance spreads more on site, it will be important to be able to handle the largest number of conveyance scenes with a small number of models from the viewpoint of shortening the installation period and reducing the cost of introducing the machine. Being able to handle various transport scenes specifically means the following.
・ It has a follow-up function and an autonomous transfer function and can use them that are suitable for the characteristics of transfer
・ The trolley type CarriRo® can be used for loading directly on the loading platform or for towing other trolleys and transporting it, so it can be used in accordance with existing operations
・ In the case of towing, a dedicated attachment suitable for general-purpose carts such as basket carts, slim carts or hand lifts is available and can be used immediately.
・ The product lineup includes a bogie type, pallet loading type, unmanned forklift, and can handle various weights and sizes of goods including pallet conveyance.

■ What is the "extensibility" of CarriRo®?
Depending on the customer and each installation site, the degree of automation required and the cost for that will usually vary. Given such a background, it is important to establish a system that can be introduced with the minimum number of standard functions as much as possible and add necessary functions with add-ons. With such scalability, you can get the features you need at minimal cost. The mechanism to add necessary functions with add-ons specifically are the following contents.
・ The tracking function and the autonomous movement function can be selectively applied, and if only the tracking function is used, the introduction can be considered with a more reasonable model called CarriRo® FD
・When linking with elevators and automatic doors using a PLC (Programmable Logic Controller), etc., an external device link model is also provided, and the necessary functions can be installed freely.
・ A cloud service "Robo-HI" is provided as an option for visualizing operation and controlling multiple units simultaneously, and it is possible to perform advanced operations in cooperation with each other.
