ENERGIZE YOUR INTRALOGISTICS
with the autonomous mobile robot (AMR) ActiveShuttle

The AMR ActiveShuttle is already making entry into the factory of the future: it is implemented quickly without adapting your existing factory infrastructure, intuitive to operate, completely connected and safe for people to use! ActiveShuttle automates and standardizes your material supply. In the future, transport your dollies that are loaded with Small Load Carriers (SLC) in a highly flexible and secure manner. The ActiveShuttle Management System (AMS) enables highly flexible order management, in which orders can be entered manually or automatically fed via third systems.


The autonomous transport system in action!

The AMR for your fleet management in the intralogistic.

AUTOMATED AND STANDARDIZED INTO THE FUTURE

The ActiveShuttle ensures an economical and optimized flow of material and goods in the logistics and manufacturing sector. It could be applied in various industries, such as Automotive, the Automotive supplier industry, the Electrical industry or in any other sectors of Intralogistics applications. Increasingly more individualized products, more component diversity, fluctuating production figures – the competitive pressure in intralogistics is increasing. Autonomous transport systems – like the ActiveShuttle – create the necessary flexibility and transparency and provides answers to the questions of Intralogistics 4.0.

CLEVER SYSTEM

The ActiveShuttle Management System (AMS) is the heart of the entire system and centralizes control of the complete ActiveShuttle fleet. As a control software, AMS displays the live status of your fleet, assigns the pending transport orders to the available vehicles and lets the user control and flexibly configure the logistics scenarios during productive operation. The result is a highly flexible order management system that allows order to be entered manually or fed in automatically via third-party systems.

LESS SAFTEY STOCKS AND STORAGE REQUIREMENTS

Flexible, requirement-oriented material supply and efficient order management. Or taxi instead of service bus: The ActiveShuttle driverless transport system moves dollies, which are loaded with small load carriers (SLC), autonomously and quickly from A to B, for example from the goods warehouse directly to the point of use. So logistics processes could be optimized, space and materials could be reduced and throughput times are shorter.

ActiveShuttle features at a glance

Flexible

Full flexibility
Jobs can be fed in manually or fully automatically thanks to the standard interfaces provided (sensor, PLC, MES/ ERP etc.). Transport requirements are assigned to available ActiveShuttles via the AMS.
A wide range of supply principles
With the AMS, a wide range of supply principles can be realized – from cyclic transport to requirement-oriented material deliveries.
Variable job templates
With easy-to-configure job templates, you can achieve a wide range of transport concepts.

Secure

Safety concept
The safety concept designed in cooperation with the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV) ensures a secure continuous 24/7 mixed operation with people and machines.
Performance level d
The safety laser scanners used provide the highest reliability in continuous 24/7 operation.

Adaptive

AMS Live Map
The ActiveShuttle fleet immediately records occurring changes in the production environment and automatically updates the reference map. Therefore, manual re-mapping belongs to the past.
Quick and flexible adaptation
Short-term changes can be made during live operation with a few clicks in the AMS.
Traffic management
If a number of ActiveShuttles are in use, they communicate with each other wirelessly via the AMS and inform each other about changes in the environment in order to be able to react prematurely to bottlenecks.

Robust

Obstacle management
The integrated obstacle management enables braking in time and a safe passing of occurring obstacles on the road.
3D obstacle detection
In addition to the safety laser scanner, stereo cameras scan the room in 3D. As a result, even objects protruding into the ActiveShuttle’s path are recognized.
Robust transport
The robust construction and the use of tested navigation and sensor technologies ensure high reliability in dynamic production environments.
