Clearpath Robotics: Company Expands Line of Self-Driving Vehicles for Warehouses, Factories



Kitchener, Ontario — Clearpath Robotics recently expanded the OTTO line of self-driving vehicles with OTTO 100, a vehicle designed for autonomous light-load material transport in warehouses and factories.

“The OTTO 100 takes the high quality and reliability of the OTTO 1500 and puts those advanced capabilities into a smaller form factor,” said Matt Rendall, CEO, Clearpath. “This enables new self-driving services in distribution, e-commerce, and manufacturing.”

The OTTO 100 system delivers dynamic and efficient light-load transport in increasingly congested industrial operations. Traditional material-handling systems require costly and rigid changes to infrastructure, cannot adapt to a changing environment, and are unsafe for collaboration with warehouse personnel.

OTTO does not rely on external infrastructure for navigation, making implementation hassle-free and highly scalable. OTTO 100 uses Clearpath’s self-driving OS to provide autonomous transport up to 220-pound loads at speeds up to 4.5 mph, while tracking along optimal paths and safely avoiding collisions.

OTTO 100 can be configured with a lift, bin carrier, or cart and integrates directly with ERPs via the OTTO enterprise fleet management system.

The OTTO family of self-driving vehicles includes OTTO 100 for light-load material transport and OTTO 1500 for heavy-load material transport.
