Cyngn Inc. has announced that it is working with Jtec Industries, a manufacturer of material handling carts. The collaboration will bring a sophisticated cart system to end users’ autonomous vehicle deployments. Jtec’s CarryMore Cart consists of two parts. The “mother” remains attached to the autonomous vehicle, while the “daughter” can be moved around and loaded with goods. Once loaded, workers lock the daughter cart into the mother and send the vehicle on its way.
“We’re pleased to be promoting Jtec’s CarryMore Mother/Daughter Cart to give our autonomous vehicle customers more options for getting work done,” said Cyngn’s CEO Lior Tal. “Our vehicles are able to tow heavy loads that are often required in manufacturing facilities and other operations that move materials on pallets that would be impossible with most AGVs and AMRs. It’s a natural fit for vehicles that tow cargo to cross-sell carts.”
“A high towing capacity means that our autonomous vehicle solutions work in more places,” explained Tal. “Our customers are able to use these deployments to move massive pieces of equipment and heavier loads to support their manufacturing processes in ways that would be impossible with plastic AGVs.”
For Jtec, the relationship is an opportunity to position itself with an excellent future-facing autonomous vehicle company. “Cyngn has brought an effective autonomous industrial vehicle solution that complements our products very well, and we’re excited to work with them on another deployment,” added Ty Overcash, Jtec’s Director of Automation. “We worked closely with U.S. Continental Packaging to evaluate their material handling needs and have customized the perfect cart for their use case. This opportunity is a great fit for Jtec and Cyngn.”
Jtec’s cart system flexibility is just one of the many benefits to bringing autonomous capabilities to material handling vehicles like the Stockchaser. Another, of course, is the Stockchaser’s impressive towing capacity. The collaboration will lead to additional revenue opportunities. “A high towing capacity means that our autonomous vehicle solutions work in more places.”
