ATLAS 80

AN AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE

The ATLAS 80 is an autonomous vehicle built for robust and light-duty indoor and outdoor work.  The system is carefully designed to be modular with different attachments for indoor and outdoor logistical work.

Designed with our proprietary, Long-Life Rapid Charging System, it is uniquely positioned to offer 24x7 operations with charging cycles of less than 7 minutes – Indefinitely improving operational productivity. Most importantly, our batteries are designed for up to 50,000 Duty Cycles without the need of replacing the battery packs, outlasting conventional Lithium Batteries by 20X.

The ATLAS 80 is designed to be easily programmed for multiple industrial and commercial use, employing the best of Sensor Fusion Technology for improved Autonomous Capabilities.

DESIGN CONCEPT

The ATLAS 80 is designed with two main principles - Strength and Reliability. We believe in ensuring that our Autonomous Logistical Series is reliable and tough enough for our client's daily logistical operations. We have also designed the ATLAS 80 as a modular system that allows for different types of sensors to be installed. This future-proofing protects the investment of our clients where the components can be easily updated as technology evolves.

BATTERY TECHNOLOGY

The ATLAS 80 is designed with the latest power storage technology available.  Currently, the usage of Lithium Batteries will reduce its battery life significantly. However, by using our latest Capacitive Battery Technology, our power storage outlasts standard Lithium Batteries by 20X without degradation due to High Rapid Current Charging.  Our Batteries charge up to 150 Amp, exceeding standard charging methods due to the usage of our Proprietary ‘DROPCHARGING’ methodology.

Using this methodology, we are able to create a high power charging system without the need of our customers to implement 3-phase power connections. This solution uses standard single-phase 240V-13 amp plugs, saving infrastructure cost and can easily be enhanced in the future for Solar Charging of our Vehicle Solutions.

CHASSIS DESIGN

Ensuring the ATLAS 80 is reliable, our chassis is purposefully designed for uneven roads. With the inbuilt of proprietary articulated chassis, we are able to ensure all 4 wheels are on the ground regardless of the unevenness (to a maximum of 10 cm variation). This enables the ATLAS 80 to work both indoors and outdoors with stability. In addition to that, the chassis is designed for a total weight of up to 500kg.

AUTONOMOUS SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE

To maintain future-proofing and allowing continued protection of our clients' asset investment, we have designed the ATLAS 80 to be modular and be easily enhanced with different software modules and control systems.

We have a created a proprietary software that is designed into 2 major software architectural layers: Machine Logic and High Computing Algorithmic. By separating our software to machine level logic, we are able to ensure the fastest response time of decision processing to supercede the slower but more complex decision-making layer of our software. This unique separation allows our system to be more responsive to environmental changes and improve safety aspects of our vehicle solutions. It also allows complex work to be programmed in the future.

While we have invested into our proprietary software, we are cognizant that the software developments are constantly changing and improving. For this reason, we have designed our ATLAS 80 to separate out the AI portion versus the brawn mechanical spinal system. This once again, helps our clients to future-proof their investment whenever they wish to adopt new and improved software algorithms into our hardware architecture.
