  • a manipulator for scenarious under 15kg weight
  • a gripper system for small load carriers
  • several tugger carts
  • sensor system for detection of working environment
  • sensor system for navigation and securing the robot system
  • software for image processing
  • software for human machine interaction
  • software for navigation and security
