Autopilots are programmed to complete all tasks safely, and to work alongside manual operators. The built-in safety scanners and obstacle detection units prevent collisions by reacting accordingly to obstacles crossing the trucks’ path. Load sensors and vision cameras further ensure accurate and safe load handling.
All Autopilot trucks are controlled by the Order Manager designed in-house by Toyota. This software works as a standalone or as a communication layer with warehouse management and production systems. The Order Manager keeps track of goods storage, orders, traffic and flow thanks to its intelligent fleet control and the integration with ERP/WMS.
The Autopilots can be equipped with Lithium-ion batteries that are up to 30% more energy-efficient whilst reducing CO2 emissions. With the ability of auto charging, the trucks can charge quickly in between tasks without the need of personnel or charging rooms, making it fully automated.
The Autopilot range is based on the industry-proven Toyota warehouse trucks and is fully supported by the Toyota Material Handling UK service network. To ensure maximum return on investment, professional services are included, ranging from system support to change request handling to preventive system maintenance.
