Seegrid Corporation says its new Seegrid Palion Tow Tractor Series 8 is now available. It is an upgraded version of the company’s automated tow tractor.

Enhanced Smart Path technology increases the robotic fleet’s ability to comprehend and make decisions in dynamic, high-traffic facilities. Advances in Seegrid’s artificial intelligence allow Palion AMRs to see, understand, and learn using the company’s proprietary vision system.

The new Palion Tow Tractor Series 8 has an enhanced understanding of its path and surroundings, an extended field of view, and a shorter clearance height while still managing a variety of cart train and payload tugging applications with a 10,000 pound maximum load capacity.

Seegrid’s Smart Path algorithm uses the company’s advanced computer vision technology and sensor fusion models, providing Palion AMRs with the ability to understand and learn, as well as perform and report on tasks safely and productively.

This year, Seegrid upgraded its Palion Pallet Truck, and premiered its first autonomous lift truck, Palion Lift AMR. The news follows the recent formation of the company’s research and development group, Blue Labs, an in-house innovation team.

“We are proud to continue delivering on Seegrid’s decades-long commitment to innovation and safety as the market leader in robust mobile automation,” said Jim Rock, Seegrid’s CEO.

“Seegrid has an unstoppable focus on providing the most advanced, reliable, and holistic AMR solutions to help our customers safely increase productivity and remain competitive.”
