Seegrid (Booth 3100) was off and running on Monday morning with a press conference introducing two new solutions to Modex and the marketplace–the GC4, a vision-guided robotic standup forklift; and View, an automated data collection tool. 

Seegrid’s director of sales and marketing David Noble said the market is demanding robotic trucks and autonomous vehicles, and the unmanned or unmanned GC4 vehicle responds to that demand with flexibility and an affordable price. 

The View solution answers the age-old question: How can we do better? “Our technology, which is built into the brand of lift trucks that end users rely on most, captures important information that can be used to optimize efficiencies. View puts vital data in the hands of management, and that data is power to improve the operation’s processes,” explained Noble.

Modex 2012 is scheduled to be held February 6-9, 2012 in Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete Modex 2012 coverage.
