Mag­a­zino at the CeMAT Pre­view Event


9. February 2018


Hanover 6 Feb­ru­ary 2018 | Mag­a­zino pre­sented the newly devel­oped robot SOTO to around 200 jour­nal­ists from all over the world at the pre­view event for CeMAT and Han­nover Messe. In addi­tion to the part­ner coun­try Mex­ico, the impor­tant trends and devel­op­ments in the indus­try were also pre­sented at a press con­fer­ence. SOTO was placed on stage as an exam­ple of the rapid devel­op­ment of intel­li­gent robots.

Fol­low­ing the press con­fer­ence, Lukas Zanger (COO & co-founder of Mag­a­zino) explained the spe­cial fea­tures and func­tions of the per­cep­tion-con­trolled trans­port robot to the chair­man of Deutsche Messe, Dr. Jochen Köck­ler, and the audi­ence. SOTO uses a 3D cam­era and numer­ous sen­sors and laser scan­ners to per­ceive its envi­ron­ment. It can iden­tify and locate objects up to a size of 600 x 400 x 400 mil­lime­ters com­pletely autonomously, grip them from dif­fer­ent heights, store them on the device, trans­port them to their des­ti­na­tion and place them there again. This makes SOTO one of the world’s first robots to com­bine this spec­trum of capa­bil­i­ties in a sin­gle sys­tem. On stage, SOTO demon­strated how it can pick up objects from a roller con­veyor with its adap­tive grip­per and store them tem­porar­ily in its stor­age space for transport.

The robot will first be pre­sented to the broad pro­fes­sional audi­ence at the Logi­MAT logis­tics trade fair in Stuttgart in mid-March — in April, of course, at the CeMAT trade fair in Hanover.
