Semi-Automatic Systems: BT Autopilot
Discover how the BT Autopilot facilitates order picking operations
The unique BT Autopilot concept allows driverless operation for repetitive movement of goods. This not only increases efficiency, but also reduces manual labour, saving money. The LAE and SAE trucks are both ideal for manufacturing applications in which similar journeys are made repeatedly. These include delivery of goods between production lines and storage areas, or between conveyor systems. The unique Automated Order Picking concept makes the BT Autopilot trucks perfectly suited to high-intensity order picking applications, such as those in distribution centres.
Based on standard truck designs, the LAE240 and the SAE200 are fitted with advanced laser technology for navigation and safety. These automatic trucks improve efficiency by reducing manual labour, saving money and reducing the risk of work-related injuries. They can be used as ‘stand-alone’ trucks in simple installations such as transporting goods, or in larger operations with multiple trucks integrated with the customer’s Warehouse Management System. The trucks within the BT Autopilot range can be used in manual mode as a standard stacker or powered pallet truck, as well as Automated Order Picking (AOP) trucks to increase picking productivity. Integrated with voice communication, these trucks work well alongside manual trucks.
