With a load capacity of 25 tons, the TractEasy is already deployed at a number of sites around the world to tow heavy items on cross indoor-outdoor routes

The tractor can operate in complex, outdoor environments with the ability to cross indoors, and without dedicated infrastructure. It is already being used by the BMW Group Plant Dingolfing in Germany, Daimler Truck AG, and other major automotive manufacturing plants and logistics centers in Europe and the United States on cross outdoor/indoor flows.

EasyMile has been providing solutions for the autonomous transport of people and goods for close to decade, and is known for its expertize in developing and driverless vehicles for passenger transport, and now, material handling.

With a load capacity of 25 tons, the TractEasy is already deployed at a number of sites around the world to tow heavy items on cross indoor-outdoor routes. It uses a range of sensors and cameras with real-time processing to maneuver independently and efficiently. This includes centimeter-precise localization at any moment, wide-range perception to handle obstacles and enhanced navigation including vehicle to infrastructure (V2X) communication, predictive control, and decisions at intersections and pedestrian crossings.

The solution has also served major airports for baggage and/or cargo towing including the first in the United States, Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, as well as Narita International in Japan, Schiphol in the Netherlands, and operates in a fleet at Changi Airport in Singapore.

It is the most-deployed driverless tow-tractor globally with more than 20 vehicles already in operation.

Benedikt Sperling, Managing Director of EasyMile Gmbh, said:

Driverless solutions that maneuver independently and safely in outdoor environments while being able to cross indoors, are transforming material and cargo flows.

These solutions are unlocking a whole new market segment and paving the way for a smarter, more streamlined manufacturing line.

By leveraging the latest advancements in robotics, computer vision, vehicle dynamics and sensor technology, driverless towing can help companies to move materials and goods around large sites, warehouses, and distribution centers more efficiently and cost-effectively. The TractEasy solution can reduce operating costs by 30%. It also helps to increase the speed and efficiency of operations, and reduces the risk of accidents and injuries on site as autonomous vehicles operate with a high degree of precision.

EasyMile is already deploying its solution in a number of facilities across Europe and is expanding its footprint as a supplier of outdoor driverless towing globally. The company is committed to providing high-quality solutions that meet the needs of its customers, and is looking forward to meeting existing customers as well as building new relationships and partnerships at LogiMAT 2023.

LogiMAT 2023 will be held at the Stuttgart trade fair Center from April 25 – 27, 2023, and EasyMile will be exhibiting at booth number EO36. For more information about the event or to learn more about EasyMile’s autonomous driving solutions, visit EasyMile.
