The Nipper AGV has been developed to optimally interact with people. It uses light signals to communicate with the employees working in the production environment, allowing them to easily determine the status of the AGV and the direction it is driving in. Furthermore, the AGV indicates that it has detected an employee by showing the distance to that person using the traffic light colors green, orange, and red. By adding these interactive elements, we have developed a reliable colleague you can count on.Read more

We offer a scalable and flexible solution that can be installed quickly and doesn’t need specific infrastructure. And thanks to the training courses we provide, you know how to adjust the settings of the AGV to match the ever-changing production process.Read more
How does a Nipper AGV robot work?
The navigation scanner scans the working environment and creates a digital map. The Nipper AGV uses the map’s landmarks to navigate, meaning that it doesn’t need any infrastructure, such as inductive wires, magnets, or reflectors, to navigate. Making the Nipper AGV the perfect automation solution that can be quickly integrated into your existing working environment.
Moreover, it means that you can easily change the AGV’s routes in the computer. We teach you how to do that, so you can flexibly adapt the pallet transport process to a changing production environment. You can create new pallet positions, change a driving route, or easily adjust the driving speed.
The Nipper AGV is equipped with BlueBotics software for navigation, traffic control and mission generation. The fleet manager uses a Wi-Fi signal to communicate with the Nipper AGV.
Low, smart forks
The Nipper AGV is equipped with new, smart forks that are only 88 millimeters in height. Meaning that low products, such as disposable pallets, can easily be lifted. Thanks to the safety scanner that is installed in the fork nose, pallets can be detected in a quick and smart way. Upon entering the pallet, the scanner data is processed, and the Nipper AGV adjusts its route accordingly in one smooth motion, without stopping.
360° safety scanner
The Nipper AGV's safety scanners have 360° visibility around the AGV and its load, ensuring that it can safely drive in any direction. As such, the Nipper AGV meets the ISO 3691-4 safety standard for AGV vehicles.
You can quickly determine the status of the Nipper AGV and see what it is currently doing or is about to do. Furthermore, the AGV clearly indicates any detected employee via a full LED bar. Making it feel safe for employees to work with and in close range to the AGV. Increasing project acceptance, which is crucial for a successful automation project!
In addition to a full LED bar and a Bluespot direction indicator, the Nipper AGV is equipped with a unique 3D camera, enabling the AGV to recognize and distinguish people, forklifts, manual pump trucks and other objects, and adjust its behavior accordingly. To prevent accidents, the 3D camera can also detect objects beyond the field of the safety scanner’s vision.
Any information regarding the status of the Nipper AGV is displayed in a clear and graphic way via the full color, multitouch control screen. Users can manually control the AGV via the screen if needed. The HMI is available in multiple languages.
The Nipper AGV is part of a set of building blocks you can use to automate production logistics. All building blocks work together seamlessly and automatically. For example, our Nipper Stretch Hood is a powerful addition to your machinery as it automatically and quickly packages pallets in a sustainable way. We will gladly advice you on the most efficient solution for your production environment.
