The first version of the most versatile AMR in the market

TUGBOT’s first version solves the last pressing challenge in intra-logistics automation: how to automate the thousands of different carts and trolleys manually pulled to move millions of tons of daily freight inside warehouses, factories, construction sites and other businesses. The TUGBOT leverages advanced design, engineering, manufacturing and mechatronics expertise to offer a customisable but reliable gripping system for pulling industrial loads. TUGBOT can perform its assigned tasks autonomously or semi-autonomously, being able to autonomously navigate along complex paths through changing environments with minimal human guidance.

The TUGBOT enables the automation of manual material handling processes by attaching seamlessly to a wide range of wheeled vehicles commonly used in the intra-logistics field.
