about the App

Combining autonomous mobile robots or automated guided vehicles with IOT devices can significantly enhance the value of the automated transport solution.  IOT sensors can detect conditions of proximity, distance, cube, height, weight or occupancy and with the SOFTBOT App can now create transport missions with any mobile robot or guided vehicle fleet manager.

Now with the simple push of a wireless button or the change of weight or height an automated mobile robot or guided vehicle can be orchestrated to complete a task.
