The Forge Robotic Platform
Forge answers the need for a capable and affordable robotic system that can perform a wide variety of functions across multiple industries.
Planned developments in an open API and the Forge Marketplace will allow greater access and flexibility to developers.
How It Works
The same technology used to automate vehicles from other industries was used in the development of Forge. A Nav system of robotic components installs easily into a Forge unit, converting it from manual to robotic control. The skid steer bases used for Forge are all electrical (or by-wire) vehicles, making it easy for Nav to leverage the vehicle’s existing CAN Bus, providing access to transmission, steering, acceleration, braking, and other critical functions.
Each Forge unit is full-automation capable at the time of shipment, but can be easily remote controlled or teleoperated from a remote command center.
