VisionNav Robotics, a leader in materials handling robotics, made waves at MODEX 2024 in Atlanta with the world premiere of its groundbreaking automatic trailer truck loading and unloading solution, featuring the innovative VNST20 PRO AGV robotics. The event showcased how this cutting-edge solution can efficiently handle loading and unloading tasks within a remarkable 45-minute timeframe.

The VNST20 PRO combines VisionNav’s autonomous forklift VNST20 with an advanced Robot Control System (RCS) and state-of-the-art 3D LiDAR SLAM deep learning positioning technology. This integration results in a flexible solution specifically tailored for trailer trucks, automating loading, unloading, and manual handling tasks with precision and efficiency.

At MODEX 2024, VisionNav provided an immersive display that offered attendees a firsthand exploration of the capabilities of the VNST20 PRO. This marks a significant leap forward in the realm of trailer truck loading and unloading technology.

Equipped with a powerful RCS and advanced mapping, perception, localization, and routing technologies, the VNST20 PRO generates efficient loading and unloading strategies, optimizes delivery routes, and maximizes loading rates. Its 3D LiDAR SLAM positioning system ensures increased space utilization, scenario adaptation, compatibility, and solution redundancy for fast, safe, and efficient cargo handling.

Scheduled for release in the US in 2025, the VNST20 PRO boasts adaptability to diverse trucks, goods, and environments. It features self-adaptive perception for unstructured environments and dynamic mapping for dynamic routing in containers. Additionally, it is compatible with a wide range of trucks in North America and Europe and can accommodate various pallet types, including EPAL and CHEP. The VNST20 PRO also offers the flexibility of manual mode operation to prevent delays.

Key features of VisionNav’s VNST20 PRO include a rated load capacity of 2000 kg, cargo top clearance of 150 mm, a gap between goods of 0-30 mm, and a minimum turning radius of 1,431 mm, all contributing to the remarkable 45-minute loading/unloading time.

Don Dong, VP of Global Sales at VisionNav Robotics, expressed excitement about the VNST20 PRO, stating, “The VNST20 PRO represents the cutting edge of AGV robotics technology, revolutionizing cargo handling by enabling trailer truck loading or unloading in as little as 45 minutes. We showcased the VNST20 PRO at MODEX 2024, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. For those interested in learning more or arranging a proof of concept test, our team is available to assist.”
