Motorised Trolley


Material transportation is an integral part of a logistics operation where incoming material requests are retrieved by automated or manual storage systems. For warehouses with high storage and narrow aisles, operators need to retrieve material using a trolley and a ladder. Productivity often depends on the material quantity and location. A compact motorised trolley improves productivity in transporting the operator, providing access to high storage areas and collecting materials.


The aim of this project is to design and develop a compact motorised trolley than can transport a person and payload in an indoor space. It features a manual driving mode with speed control when moving in a constrained area or open space. It incorporates a built-in ladder for operator access to high storage cabinets, safety bumpers and lights. It caters for a payload of 200kg and a range of 20km for a single charge.
