Logistics support robot CarriRo® holds "Demo Caravan" nationwide
-Free demonstration of products will be held at sites where customers consider to install automatic transportation all over Japan-
ZMP Inc. (Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Taniguchi Hisashi) will demonstrate the logistics support robot CarriRo® at sites throughout Japan (excluding Hokkaido and Okinawa) from August 23 to September 10, 2021. We will hold a "Demo Caravan" to carry out.
Since its launch in 2016, CarriRo has been introduced in more than 250 warehouses and factories, and is being used to solve labor shortages and to automatise the sites. When the customers is considering the installation, we usually participate in exhibitions and events to show them the actual machine, and they can use it as a reference for on-site operation images. However, under the circumstances of this COVID-19, it became difficult to participate in such exhibitions and events, and many people asked us to visit the site instead and conduct site visits and product demonstrations.
As a result of the current circumstances, we will hold a "Demo Caravan" event. In this demo caravan, we will bring CarriRo directly to sites all over the country and move the product under the lecture of professional staff as an opportunity for more companies to consider introducing it.
In the product demo, you can test CarriRo's movement of loading and towing the actual transported object on the site and driving it on the assumed route. In addition, for sites considering unmanned forklifts and unmanned towing vehicles, we will check and investigate the environment such as aisle width and floor surface locally, propose the optimum assumed operation method, and distribute logistics including cost effectiveness. We will also propose improvements.
There are two types of CarriRo that you can see, the CarriRo AD + trolley type, which is equipped with a wheel and is ideal for towing, and the CarriRo AD + pallet loading type, which is ideal for pallet transportation that sneaks under a dedicated pallet trolley. You can try the following, the autonomous driving function and also the latest functions such as transport attachment / detachment etc.

[Logistics support robot CarriRo]
Logistics support robot CarriRo is the product developed from ZMP's autonomous driving technology such as Auto taxi. In the logistics industry, where labor is rapidly becoming scarce due to the declining birthrate and aging population, we are selling for the purpose of reducing the burden of transportation work and labor saving and efficiency improvement. Currently, we have introduced a total of about 250 users since the start of sales, and with the new added value of autonomous movement, we are expanding the introduction to various fields such as the service industry such as hotels, including distribution bases and factories.
