Millions of Miles, Billions of Pounds, Zero Incidents

Seegrid Palion AMRs are the market leader in robust navigation, and go above and beyond ANSI B56.5 safety standards, as well as satisfy all applicable safety requirements of ANSI R15.08. Our robots work seamlessly–and safely–alongside their human coworkers.

Consistent.


Seegrid Palion AMRs excel at routine and repetitive tasks—assign tedious and risk-prone jobs with confidence.

Reliable.


Cameras and machine learning enable Palion AMRs to “see” their surroundings—this proprietary, 360° vision is critical in dynamic environments. 

Predictable.


When in autonomous mode, Palion AMRs always follow the rules, working seamlessly and tirelessly alongside human coworkers.

Exceed Safety Standards and Productivity Goals


As supply chain pressures and demands continue to climb, autonomous mobile robots are key to efficiently moving materials. However, manually-driven powered industrial trucks are prone to accidents and injuries, as they rely on human input which can be compromised in many ways. Increasing autonomous robot safety while also achieving productivity goals, material handling automation is essential for manufacturing, warehousing, and logistics facilities.

With proven technology in control of the Palion AMR at all times, the robot will reliably follow the intended route, maintain the right speed limits, avoid collisions, behave predictably and consistently, and never behave erratically. Because there is no greater concern than the safety, health, and lives of workers, Palion AMRs are designed with fail-safe features. With these safety systems, Palion AMRs go above and beyond ANSI B56.5 safety standards, as well as satisfy all applicable safety requirements of ANSI R15.08, working seamlessly—and safely—alongside their human coworkers.

Independent UL approved safety systems, including scanning laser obstacle detection sensors and e-stops, are included on the robot to ensure safe operation around machinery and personnel. Seegrid’s approach is to not only meet, but to also exceed regulatory requirements by building an envelope of constantly scanning safety sensors to ensure the vehicle will stop before contacting any obstructions, including people. 

Your technicians can learn about Seegrid Palion AMR safety and more with our two-day training program. By the time they leave Seegrid training facilities, your team will be ready to train training routes in-house in a matter of minutes. 

Palion AMRs also provide the flexibility to safely and productively scale to demands without sacrificing downtime. There no longer has to be a tradeoff between safety benefits and productivity. Achieve both goals and confidently continue to optimize for an even stronger tomorrow. Read more about how automation helps facilities improve safety while boosting productivity simultaneously—24/7.

Laser Guided Vehicles

Lasers provide a single slice of the environment, increasing chances for error in dynamic spaces. That’s why laser-guided vehicles have a limited understanding of their surroundings, which makes lasers an unreliable source for navigation guidance in dynamic operations.

  • Fragmented, partial view of the world
  • Unreliable in dynamic environments
  • With a limited number of data points, laser-guided
    vehicles are prone to failure in dynamic environments

SEEGRID PALION

Seegrid’s complete, hemispheric field of view of the world means
our robots work confidently for you — every hour of every day.
 

  • Detailed, expansive field of view
  • Robust in dynamic environments
  • With tens of thousands of reference points, Palion AMRs navigate
    seamlessly in high-traffic, dynamic environments

Proven, Reliable Navigation


Our proprietary, proven, and unique navigation technology is fundamental to Seegrid’s ability to reliably navigate in the most dynamic industrial environments. Our autonomous technology is a continuation of breakthrough robotics, pioneered by world-renowned roboticist Dr. Hans Moravec, who is our chief scientist. Using stereo cameras, sophisticated algorithms, and machine learning,

our patented technology enables Palion AMRs to see and process more information about the environment than laser-based navigation systems. By collecting more comprehensive information, and then prioritizing and filtering data, Palion AMRs uniquely and dependably deliver autonomous material flow in dynamic, real-world operations.


Safety Sensors

Equipped with two safety systems, Palion AMRs go beyond safety requirements to ensure the utmost safety of your personnel. The redundant safety systems cause the AMR to reduce speed or come to an immediate, complete stop when a person or object is detected. Palion AMRs that move in reverse have additional safety sensors behind the robot.

Emergency Stop Buttons

E-stop buttons ensure the safety of your facility at all times. When pressed, the motor brake is immediately applied, bringing the robot to a stop.

Turn Signals

Indicator lights atop the Palion AMR indicate direction of travel during turns, so your personnel always know which way the AMR is going.

Horn Honks and Motion Alarms

Palion AMRs notify teams how they are working with distinct alerts. An auto horn indicates motion is starting, a travel tone indicates the robot is in motion, and a horn signifies travel in reverse.

Let the Robots do the Hazardous Work

Facilities are safer when Palion AMRs take over the monotonous, extremely physical, and dangerous work. Palion AMRs don’t have bad days, cut corners, or get distracted. By automating the hazard-prone repetitive jobs, human workers become more engaged and satisfied — and can focus on more value-added work. Palion AMRs always follow the rules of the road, creating a safe and collaborative environment.
