What problem is the innovation trying to solve?

“Employees can focus their time on value-added work. Facilities with automation have a higher retention rate. Automating dull, dangerous and potentially deadly work significantly impacts the safety of manufacturing.”

— Simon Drexler, Director of Product, OTTO Motors

The innovation:

“HIROTEC America partnered with OTTO Motors to advance its goal of lights-out manufacturing. A dual-arm robot is mounted to the OTTO self-driving vehicle to perform a task. OTTO receives a job request from the production system and then autonomously navigates the facility while avoiding obstacles. Once at the workstation, the arm performs the process.”
