Can robotics change the way you think about material handling and logistics?
What if your warehouse cart could think and move by itself?
CartConnect robots, part of VirtualConveyor™ family of material transport solutions, pick up and drop off our FetchCarts autonomously to any location within a facility. CartConnect uses its knowledge of the facility along with data from multiple sensors to safely and efficiently navigate between locations, avoiding obstacles and even moving carts and forklifts. CartConnect can transport FetchCarts at up to 1.4 meters per second.
FetchCarts are rolling industrial utility carts designed for use in CartConnect solutions. FetchCarts can either be transported autonomously by CartConnect AMRs or used manually as ordinary carts, maximizing efficiency and flexibility in warehouse and manufacturing environments. FetchCarts feature an adjustable middle shelf and can support payloads of up to 150 lbs.
Simply use any web browser to request a pick-up and select a drop-off location. The nearest CartConnect robot will then automatically move to the pick-up area, dock with the loaded FetchCart, and transport it to the selected drop-off area. Upon arrival, CartConnect automatically detaches from the FetchCart and is ready for the next task.
People and Robots Working Together
Carts remain one of the essential modes of material transport for a variety of tasks in industrial environments. CartConnect and FetchCart were designed to collaborate seamlessly with people during their daily warehouse and manufacturing workflows, reducing unnecessary travel time and fatigue while increasing productivity.
Our CartConnect robots are designed to work alongside people, forklifts, and other equipment in busy warehouse environments. CartConnect robots have a suite of technical safety features which allow them to navigate safely inside your facility, including 2D and 3D camera integration, dynamic obstacle avoidance, occlusion detection, turn-in-place functionality, and a floor-illuminating blue light.
Eliminate Unnecessary Travel Time
Travel time can account for 50%+ of all warehouse work assignments. In larger distribution centers, workers can walk up to 15 miles per day. CartConnect creates an adaptable, virtual conveyor for moving material. Stop wasted movement in putaway, replenishment, picking, and other warehouse and manufacturing workflows with a CartConnect solution.
Deploy in Hours
FetchCore is our cloud-based software platform for deploying, operating, and optimizing our entire portfolio of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) for material handling and data collection applications. Manage and monitor CartConnect robots, as well as your entire Fetch Robotics AMR fleet across multiple warehouse and manufacturing environments. FetchCore enables robots to begin work within hours, as opposed to days, weeks, or months.
Customers deploying CartConnect have seen up to a 2X increase in lines per hour in as little as 2 weeks of operation. Contact Fetch Robotics to see how CartConnect and our entire line of material transport AMRs can help you exceed your KPI goals.
