In summer 2019 Photoneo releases Phollower 100. The autonomous mobile robot has been designed for transporting materials in factories, supermarkets, hotels, shopping centers and other industrial facilities. As a flexible platform, it supports a variety of add-ons. Customers can look forward to the following main features:

  • The system is equipped with a number of safety systems, including two 270 degrees laser scanners, two ultrasonic sensors, two 3D cameras as well as resolvers on each of its powered wheels.
  • It can carry up to 100 kg of direct weight and pull up to 300 kg.
  • It supports a dual-way operation with an interchangeable back and front.
  • The motion navigation does not require any markers or magnetic tapes affixed to the floor.
  • For customer comfort, the system features a web-based user interface, which implements basic functions such as map generation, designing a trajectory and system monitoring.
  • The maximum speed is 1.125 m/s (4 km/h) in both directions.
  • The wheel suspension enables to overcome floor gradients of up to 5% and a cross break with a drop of up to 20 millimeters.
  • The hardware is based on robust industrial components.
  • Socket API interface for control and monitoring of the AMR, using a control system.
  • Basic obstacle avoidance based on finding an alternative path within the trajectory layout.
  • An independent technical authority has confirmed conformity with all relevant requirements given in Annex I of the European Directive on Machinery 2006/42/EC, EN ISO 12100, EN 60204-1, EN 1175-1+A1 and EN 1525.
