Workplace safety and productivity on the production floor are closely related. Manually operated material handling equipment can be subject to a great deal of wear-and-tear due to aggressive driving habits typical of fast-paced environments, as well as accidents and collisions. The high risk of injury and its associated cost from aggressive and inexperienced driving makes warehouse safety a top concern for industrial settings. In response to these common challenges, the use of self-driving vehicles and robotics in the warehousing industry is rapidly becoming the norm.
SICK, Inc. and Vecna Robotics, Inc. have partnered to create a system that maximizes throughput, warehouse density, worker safety, and equipment longevity with a Performance Level D safety system, a high-level navigation system, and advanced braking.
Join this webinar to learn:
