CANVAS Technology, a Boulder-based robotics company are onto building the world’s first completely autonomous, self-driving industrial cart. For the first time since the company’s incorporation, it relieved its brainchild product along with a glimpse of the complex and fascinating evolution of its technology.
CANVAS’ debut product will go to work in factories and warehouses around the country — long before autonomous cars hit the road. The carts are designed to automate the transportation of materials in industrial settings, using cutting-edge computer vision and real-time 3D mapping. CANVAS Autonomous Carts need no maps, require no infrastructure and function even in the fast-changing and unstructured environment of a warehouse floor.
And the system can be up and running in less than 60 minutes, significantly improving processes without a large investment of time or manpower.
