Intelligent Autonomous Vehicle (IAV)

In the spring of 2018, Quest Industrial revealed to the world the first wash-down rated Intelligent Autonomous Vehicle.  The IAV, as it is commonly called,  has drawn the attention of several industry leaders.   With a payload up to 5,000 lbs., the IAV has a drive unit capable of transporting most anything within a traditional industry setting.  Focused upon the food and beverage industry, the design team adhered to strict sanitation standards, as well as, tackled a variety of other operational concerns; like being able to operate in confined spaces and needing to maneuver on sloped surfaces.

Engineered to be intelligent, the IAV offers a full HMI with intelligent mapping, dynamic safeties, wireless communications and diagnostic capabilities. Quest’s IAV has the ability to self-maneuver in multiple directions on graded floors due to its dynamic driving capabilities. Powered by lithium polymer batteries, the Intelligent Autonomous Vehicle is capable of operation for up to eight hours before a recharge is needed.

Albeit the first-generation, the IAV has business heads vying for the advancement of autonomous systems within their facilities. The IAV’s pallet handling design, as seen in the pictures below, is currently undergoing beta testing, and the soon-to-be developed fork-lift version looks to hit the market in 2019.
