In short


Robotics by JAMK was established to serve companies and organizations that could utilize robotics in their operations. the aim of the center is to raise awareness of the possibilities of robotics. For example, if a company would like to automate their transportation in its production line, we are able to test our GoPal system for their needs. We could also test the integration of the robot to their system in their own premises" says Mr. Juho Riekkinen Senior Lecturer at JAMK University of Applied Sciences.

The challenge

JAMK University is working on a project called "Robot on Road". The main purpose of the project is to establish a center of excellence in robotics in Central Finland. Part of the project is to develop a testing and piloting environment for companies. "Companies have an interest in testing mobile robotics for their needs. The Gopal matched the needs of the companies and the project," says Juho Riekkinen Senior Lecturer at JAMK University of Applied Sciences.


The collaboration with robotize is mainly intended for research and development purposes. JAMK University of Applied Sciences turned to robotize for their flexible and versatile collaborative robots. "The GoPal 400 has a good load capacity. It also has good features to integrate it with external systems. These properties are relevant in our research and development projects" explains Mr. Juho Riekkinen Senior Lecturer at JAMK University of Applied Sciences.

The solution


JAMK University of Applied Sciences uses the GoPal 400 robot. The GoPal 400  is part of a larger automation system that includes industrial robotics (also working in collaboration mode) and 3D machine vision. The flexibility and versatility of the GoPal 400 enable operators to use it in different applications. “The robot has easy-to-configure call buttons and automated pallet lifting systems which makes the robot easier to take into use in different applications,” says Mr. Juho Riekkinen Senior Lecturer at JAMK University of Applied Sciences.


The GoPal 400 collaborative robot is also used for teaching engineering students about mobile robotics. The students get to experience the process of working with a mobile robot, from installation to the moment of having the robot up and running. This allows students to experience how easy and safe it is to work with a GoPal while contesting the concept that robots are unsafe or difficult to handle.

GoPal can make dynamic decisions on the fly. If GoPal comes across an obstacle – such as an object or a person – it will drive around it.

Why choose the GoPal?

GoPal lets you optimize pallet transport quickly and easily.
