OTTO Motors’ Biggest AMR Gets Stronger, Faster, and Smarter

IEEE Spectrum

Over the last few weeks, we’ve posted several articles about the next generation of warehouse manipulation robots designed to handle the non-stop stream of boxes that provide the foundation for modern ecommerce. But once these robots take boxes out of the back of a trailer or off of a pallet, there are yet more robots ready to autonomously continue the flow through a warehouse or distribution center. One of the beefiest of these autonomous mobile robots is the OTTO 1500, which is called the OTTO 1500 because (you guessed it) it can handle 1500 kg of cargo. Plus another 400kg of cargo, for a total of 1900 kg of cargo. Yeah, I don’t get it either. Anyway, it’s undergone a major update, which is a good excuse for us to ask OTTO CEO Ryan Gariepy some questions about it.
