Modular Drive Systems

The purpose of the Benedex Intelligent Platforms is to provide mobile robot builders a great BUY vs BUILD choice for robotic motion for any AMR. The features of the Benedex Intelligent Platform make it a cheaper and faster option than designing a motion platform in-house, and unlike buying a whole robotic vehicle off the shelf, the Benedex system allows freedom of design and unconstrained customisation without compromising on performance and serviceability.

Benedex Intelligent Platforms are a patent-pending, high precision and high power motion system for autonomous mobile robots, incorporating the latest technology in electric motor, sensor, semiconductor power electronics and embedded computer technology.

The system consists of a variable number of externally mounted, self motorised and controlled wheels with a central, pre-programmed controller for motion. Physically, it is easily mountable on any body or chassis with any manner of payload.
It can be used for retrofitting and prototyping due to its universal mounting, rugged build and ease of integration & use.

The Benedex Intelligent Platform’s interfaces may be further customised for serial manufacturers. Contact us for further information.

Our distributed flexible motion control and drive system architecture simplifies your design to produce a better product in a shorter time.
