OTTO Motors and Kollmorgen have announced a strategic technical collaboration on autonomous material handling. They will jointly develop self-driving vehicle applications to OEMs and System Integrators that deliver material handling solutions to end-users globally.
OTTO Motors’ autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) are deployed to companies like GE and Toyota. “As the autonomous material handling market matures, customers will expect all vehicles in their fleet to be intelligent machines,” said Matt Rendall, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of OTTO Motors.
Kollmorgen has delivered vehicle automation solutions for automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and mobile robots with its NDC Platform for over fifty years, and has through an ecosystem of OEM and System Integrator partners deployed tens of thousands of advanced self-driving vehicles for a variety of applications globally.
