Featured Robot

GideonTrey Forklift400x275Croatia-based Gideon has announced a new vehicle, Trey, an autonomous forklift for truck trailer loading and unloading operations. Trey can load and unload pallets entirely autonomously, which Gideon said will save more than 80% of a worker’s time. The vehicle operates safely, consistently, and reliably in dynamic environments, working alongside people in a warehouse.

“We at Gideon believe that we can help exponentially grow humanity’s ability to move goods by automating the most complex material handling workflows,” said Matija Kopić, CEO and co-founder at Gideon. “The world needs new ways of solving challenges. Our new way is to give superpowers to the millions of essential workers who keep our supply chains running. With the help of our customers, partners, and investors, we’ve build an AMR specifically for the task of loading and unloading truck trailers, augmenting human talent.”

Robotics Market: Drones


Iris CasiaG Copter400x275Iris Automation has announced the commercial availability of Casia G, its ground-based version of its detect-and-avoid (DAA) surveillance solution. Using the same patented artificial intelligence and computer vision technology as Iris Automation’s onboard solutions, the Casia G provides a full optical 360-degree field of regard designed to detect, alert and enable operators to avoid both cooperative and non-cooperative aircraft for safe beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) flight.

The Casia G system provides a perimeter of sanitized, monitored airspace for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to perform their work safely, without additional payload. Iris said the system is ideal for operations in fixed or temporary locations, supporting drone-in-a-box operations and augmenting or replacing human visual observers. BVLOS flight for uncrewed systems has been challenging due to right of way concerns, specifically the inability for uncrewed aircraft to successfully see and avoid other aircraft, the company said.
