Pudu Robotics, a company developing robots for the service industries, has announced its move into the industrial sector by launching its first robot for industrial applications, the PUDU T300.

The new model debuted at Hannover Messe 2024, taking place 22-26 April in Hanover, Germany.

Pudu said its T300 model features “superior maneuverability”, capable of navigating through narrow passageways typically found in industrial facilities.

The robot also includes a map-and-go feature that allows it to operate without network connectivity, unlike many industrial robots that require network setup. It also has IoT capabilities including secure door access, elevator control and navigation features from an array of lidar and depth cameras.

“Manufacturers worldwide are struggling to adapt to changing market demands and production variability,” Pudu said in a statement. “Creating more agile, responsive and flexible production lines has become crucial,

“The PUDU T300 is specifically designed to fill this need in the material logistics of discrete manufacturing, handling tasks like delivering supplies to production lines, transferring materials between different production areas, and assisting in the delivery of samples for quality inspection.”

PUDU T300 aims to alleviate labor shortages by automating delivery and transport tasks, and freeing up human workers for more skilled tasks.
