Ideal for a wide range of towing jobs

MiRHook™ is ideal for a wide range of towing jobs, such as efficiently moving heavy products between locations in a manufacturing facility or warehouse, or moving linen and food carts in hospitals. The MiRHook supports the transport of loads up to 300 kg (661 lbs), providing exciting new internal logistics options for weighty or unwieldy cargos.

Autonomously picks up and unloads carts

The MiRHook™ robot identifies carts by QR markers and autonomously transports them as you define. MiRHook can be incorporated into a fleet of MiR robots, and can be easily redeployed to meet changing requirements. Updating the robot’s mission at any time is simple, using a smartphone, tablet or computer and standard Wi-Fi or Bluetooth communications to access the robot’s intuitive controls.

Safely maneuvers among people

With the MiRHook, you simply measure your cart and feed the data into the software. Built-in sensors, cameras and sophisticated software mean the robot with the MiRHook and a cart can safely maneuver around people and obstacles, and can even drive up ramps.
