Seegrid Taking Orders for Palion, its Autonomous Lift Truck


March 28, 2022

Seegrid, which develops autonomous mobile robots for material handling tasks, has announced that its newest autonomous lift truck, the Seegrid Palion Lift, is now available for pre-order. With initial customer shipments occurring later in April 2022, the lift truck AMR is aimed at manufacturing, e-commerce, and logistics companies.

Equipped with the most advanced generation of Seegrid’s proprietary autonomy technology, Palion Lift also includes 3D perception for navigation along with situational awareness capabilities. The Seegrid IQ autonomy fuses data from cameras, lidar, and machine learning models to enable the forklift to work in complex environments, moving material safely, accurately, and reliably in dynamic facilities.

“Our highly reliable and proven 3D vision-based navigation system is now augmented with additional sensing modalities to create the latest generation of Seegrid IQ,” said Todd Graves, chief technology officer at Seegrid. “This advances our perception, localization, planning and safety systems – increasing the human-like situational awareness and agility of our AMRs, a critical capability for the extremely demanding conditions in which they reliably operate every day.”

Through its Smart Path sensing capabilities and 360-degree safety coverage, Palion Lift can automate the transport of up to 3,500 lbs through customer operations, Seegrid said. This includes also retrieving and placing palletized goods at heights of up to six feet for an end to end solution.

“As supply chain pressures continue to compound, our customers need a solution with the highest levels of safety and reliability to be both productive and resilient,” said Jim Rock, CEO of Seegrid. “Our outstanding team of material handling experts and roboticists developed an autonomous lift truck with intelligence that is unmatched in the market.”

Seegrid added that its Palion AMR fleet has driven 7 million autonomous miles in customer production environments without a single safety incident. For more details on the new Palion Lift, visit the Seegrid website here.
