Electronic Power Assist Trolley System
This is an electronic power assist trolley system with an intuitive control scheme. Electronic sensors are strategically embedded in the trolley handlebar to measure the micro deformation of the materials when force is applied by the user. The torque vector is calculated 100 times per second based on the sensor's value by an onboard AI controller. Amplified torque is generated by two motors connected to the wheels of the trolley. Turning left/right or forward/backward depends on the calculated torque vector. The manoeuvre of this power assist trolley is the same as a traditional mechanical trolley without buttons, joysticks and controllers. No prior training is required when using the trolley and it can be manoeuvred like an empty trolley even if it is heavily-loaded. The built-in power regeneration and brake system make it safe for use even on a ramp.
Benefits of Electronic Power Assist Trolley System
Navigating the transportation of heavy loads is a critical task in the logistics and warehousing industry. The electronic power assist trolley system has simplified and enhanced the transportation process. The power assist trolley eliminates the need for excessive physical exertion during manoeuvres. Operators can effortlessly transport heavy loads using straightforward controls. Compared to the traditional mechanical trolley, the power assist trolley offers distinct advantages when it comes to transporting large or heavy items. With easy control over the trolley's forward, backward, and stop functions, users can handle the transportation of goods and items with ease. The trolly’s built-in power regeneration and brake system help mitigate workplace injuries. Typically, manual lifting of heavy loads or moving with a heavily-loaded trolley can result in injuries to the lower back or spine. With the electronic power assist trolley system, these risks are substantially minimised, promoting a safer and more efficient working environment.
This system has won a Gold Medal in the 48th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva.
