April 16, 2020
Waypoint Robotics has launched Kingpin, an automation top module that enables omnidirectional autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) to automatically load and unload payloads and connect to a variety of carts.

Waypoint Robotics has launched Kingpin, an automation top module that enables Waypoint’s omnidirectional autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) to automatically load and unload payloads and connect to a variety of carts, offering flexibility for material movement.

Kingpin enables Vector to do two critical jobs with one top module, as opposed to having a dedicated fleet of lift deck robots for automatic load/unload, and another dedicated fleet of cart connecting robots for cart transport. With Kingpin, Vector can automatically pick up a tote on one side of the factory, deliver it to the other side of the factory, and then connect to a cart on the way back to the starting point. Kingpin is equipped to do both tasks—automatic loading and unloading, as well as the ability to connect to carts commonly used in factories and warehouses.

Waypoint’s Kingpin combined with Vector (600 lb payload capacity AMR) or MAV3K (3000 lb payload capacity AMR) offers autonomous navigation, omnidirectional movement, 3D perception, and 360 degree safety lasers.
