Kilo, the intelligent robot from Piaggio Fast Forward that helps at the Moto Guzzi facilities

Officially launched at Modex, America’s premier industrial supplies show currently taking place in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, Kilo is an autonomous robotic platform, with a payload up to 130 kg.

Equipped with the innovative package of 4D radar sensors and images developed by PFF, it can follow the operator, move autonomously and travel more than 100 trajectories stored in memory.

Greg Lynn, CEO of Piaggio Fast Forward, said: “Our robotic technology is increasing the workforce around the world; kilo offers customizable options with the ability to use cutting-edge software tools to manage the relationship between humans and robots.”

Concludes: “From manufacturing to any industry that relies on the repetitive movement of goods through campuses and production facilities, PFF’s autonomous technology allows our robots to safely move with and around workers in complex environments, streamlining flows. of work and increasing productivity.”

Let us remember that the subsidiary company of the Piaggio Group has been working on this type of technology since 2017. Currently, the brand markets the Gita, in Plus and Mini versions, in the US, where the circulation of robots on city streets is regulated.

With appropriate road regulations, Piaggio Fast Forward robots will be able to drive autonomously on sidewalks and pedestrian areas, satisfying the growing demand for last-mile and home deliveries.

Kilo intelligent autonomous platform in detail

Kilo It is designed to work alongside humans, allowing users to move materials naturally and reduce the risk of injury. It marks the first introduction of PFF’s proprietary Travel on Known Paths autonomous behavioral software and provides operators with an innovative work tool with the ability to follow or move autonomously.

The platform Kilo It is highly customizable – it can be equipped with industry or facility-specific carts or racks, ensuring the right configuration for any job. Additionally, the PFF pro TM tools mobile app allows for easy robot fleet management and regular software updates.

As part of the project to modernize the Mandello del Lario production facilities, the Piaggio Group plans to integrate the robot Kilo on the new Moto Guzzi production lines to assist in the operator’s maneuvers. It will subsequently be introduced into other Group production facilities in Italy, India, Vietnam and Indonesia.

The solution of PFF driver assistance It recently debuted on the new Moto Guzzi Stelvio adventure bike. This is the first time these radar sensors have been designed for use on a motorcycle.

Compared to a traditional driver assistance system based on ultrasound sensors, they offer an extremely wide field of vision and completely reliable monitoring, in any lighting and environmental conditions.

The devices play a fundamental role in active safety, ensuring the functions of Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Blind Spot Information System (BLIS), Lane Change Assist (LCA) and Follow Cruise Control (FCC). .
