Since our inception, back in the last century, our PhD optics and robotics engineers have developed enabling technologies (the brains) to realize autonomous vehicle movement:


In the ongoing pursuit of optimal vehicle automation, we have commissioned and collaborated on PhD level research with many leading academic institutions and third-party suppliers. This valuable experience has enabled us to produce Industry 4.0 solutions which continue to aid end users, logistic solution providers and logistic vehicle makers in achieving their automation goals.

We are proud to have enabled our past clients to automate robotic vehicles, fork lift trucks, floor cleaning equipment and all types of mobile moving systems. These solutions have been applied in a broad range of autonomous transport applications such as airports, warehousing, healthcare, production, bottling plants, printing, retail, marine and more.
