In short


"Robotics by JAMK" was established to serve companies and organizations and how they could implement robotics in their operations. The purpose of the center is to raise awareness of the vast possibilities within the field of robotics. "For example, if a company wants to automate their transportation within its production line, we can use the GoPal Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) to test their requirements. We can also test the GoPal integration with their own system at 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 Mr. Riekkinen


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 and it provides excellent features for integration with external systems. These properties are relevant for our research and development projects," explains Mr. Riekkinen.

The solution


JAMK University of Applied Sciences uses the GoPal 400 AMR. The GoPal 400 is part of a larger automation system, which includes industrial robotics (also working in collaboration mode) and 3D machine vision.


The versatility of the GoPal 400 enables operators to utilize it for different applications. “The robot has easy-to-configure call buttons and automated pallet lifting systems, which makes the robot easy to deploy for different applications,” says Mr. Riekkinen.


The GoPal 400 is also used for teaching engineering students about mobile robotics. The students get to experience the process of working together with an autonomous mobile robot - from installation to deployment and operation. This way, students get a first-hand experience of how easy and safe it is to work with and around GoPal AMRs.

As the GoPal AMRs are autonomous, they can make decisions on-the-fly. This way, if the GoPal encounters an obstacle in its path (e.g., a forklift ), it will simply drive around it.

Why choose GoPal?

GoPal lets you optimize pallet transport quickly and easily.
