Mobile robotics for good and parcel processing

Soly™ is the SOLYSTIC’ solution based on a fleet of mobile robots managed in real time by an IT System which supervises all movements and permanently locates objects. Combined with trolleys, robots transport parcels individually. Objects are placed on trays and their images are acquired to allow an automatic recognition system to provide the information necessary for their handling.

The benefits of the Soly™ solution

  • No fixed infrastructure
  • Flexible and scalable
  • The preparation area can be shared with other activities according to the time of day
  • Easy to adjust the amount of robots used according to high and low peaks in the workload
  • Less musculoskeletal disorders among staff and reduced staff turnover.

Application cases

SOLYSTIC has already demonstrated the adaptability of its Soly™ mobile robots through application cases:

  • Soly™ Sequencer: the store delivery for retailers and the delivery preparation which discharge drivers of a tiring and time-consuming operation. They can be more efficiently to their delivery tour,
  • Soly™ Sort: the parcel sorting in bags, cartons and / or containers whose management is automated in the distribution centers,
  • Soly™ Move: the handling of bags or irregular parcels in logistics operators' hubs,
  • Soly™ Kart: the moving of karts/rolling cages.
