Interesting fact: I spent about an hour and a half on this sketch. Generally I spend two to three hours a week on the the Weekly Robot.
Voluft is a warehouse robot that carries large palettes from one place to another.
Specs: Voluft maximum speed: 1 mph. Moves by electricity. The Voluft track is installed at the top and on the floor of the warehouse in pre-designed routes. Lights that line the track glow ahead of and behind the Voluft to warn of its approach. Shelves are arranged around the perimeters of the track. Ceiling beams must meet a minimum weight capacity. Palettes can be programmed remotely to send a 3-dimensional track coordinate signal to the Voluft’s prongs as they pick up the pallette.
