Lowpad. High efficiency!


Lowpad is a smart automatic guided vehicle (AGV) in an ultralow body. It is provided with independent driven steering wheels and a multifuctional lidar camera system in order to operate autonomously. Since different models are available and can work in conjunction, Lowpad is suitable for any kind of distribution center where product variability, delivery time and eďŹƒciency are important.

Lowpad optimizes your warehouse and distribution Lowpad is computer controlled. It communicates via a WCS system and offers a dynamic routing and re-routing, depending on the different inputs and circumstances. In addition, Lowpad can be used for order picking methods, such as the Goods-to-people concept. This improves order picking efficiency up to 70 percent. Customized, dynamic acceleration and speed limits guarantee the best treatment based on the specifications of your goods. Different Lowpad models are available, depending on the requirements. Technical highlights: • built-in long life battery • charging of partly discharged batteries is permitted • WiFi communication • vehicle track-and-trace with multiple sensors • lidar assisted collision prevention • no floor-related infrastructure is required • smart, camera-supported target approach

You are in control Eurotec not just offers equipment, but also provides a state of the art software solution developed by its sister company Eurobrain. Navigator is the on-board software in every Lowpad providing navigation, machine control and safety. Supervisor is a software solution that is delivered in conjunction with a Lowpad system. Supervisor has been developed as a standard software solution to manage the traďŹƒc control, warehouse grids, and job execution. Organiser is the Warehouse Control System (WCS). Where Supervisor is a regular software solution with standard integration layers, Organiser facilitates flexibility thanks to adaptation to and integration with customer-specific applications. Within Organiser, all client-specific data and parameters of multiple subsystems are collected and translated into process tasks for Supervisor. Thanks to smart algorithms in Organiser, the Lowpad can also perform complex order processing tasks.

Supervisor

Organiser

SUPERVISOR is a standard software solution that will manage your fleet of Lowpads. This software layer contains the following functionalities:

ORGANISER works as a WCS and is a project-oriented software solution intended as an integration system between Supervisor and the customer’s WMS or ERP. It also integrates other subsystems (e.g. weighing and scanning) in a completely automated environment. The flexible framework of ORGANISER works on software plug-ins. An event handler will process internal and external triggers to either push moves to SUPERVISOR or collect data from subsystems and send feedback to the WMS. ORGANISER has its own database to store workflow and (temporary) external data.

• a configurable collection of multiple or different types of Lowpads • the ability to monitor and manage status information • warehouse grids • mapping of logical and absolute positions • routing rules and restrictions • a list of moves that must be executed • a dispatcher function that assigns moves to equipment • exception handling for manual adjustment • an integration layer (drivers) for the Lowpads • an integration layer (API) for data exchange with WCS/WMS • a limited I/O possibility Supervisor is the standard software needed for any Lowpad implementation.

In addition, Organiser is equipped with an intelligent mechanism which will combine all relevant data that the Organiser collects from the connected (sub)systems, such as planning data, preconfigured parameters, warehouse locations, and real-time changes. All of this data will be analysed and converted into an events/tasks planning which will be carried out by the Lowpads in an optimal sequence. The combination of Supervisor and Organiser will ensure an adaptive process including optimization of the automated warehouse process. Depending on the automation capabilities of the customer’s WMS, Organiser can be an optional module, a limited feature, or a complete part of the AGV installation.
