The launch is the company's largest release this year, as Seegrid
expands its suite of automated solutions aimed at optimizing materials
handling. The Seegrid Smart Platform helps manufacturing, distribution,
and e-commerce companies streamline their supply chains with automated
material movement, making operations safer and more efficient.

The latest addition to the Seegrid Smart Platform, the GT10 Series 6
Plus, raises the autonomy level of Seegrid self-driving vehicles by
utilizing rear-facing sensors to detect obstacles while autonomously
hitching to carts. This new vehicle offers fully automated material
movement from pick-up to drop-off, removing the need for human
assistance to complete tasks and allowing companies to deploy employees
to more value-added roles.

Seegrid's premier data analytics offering, the Seegrid Performance
Report, leverages data captured on self-driving vehicles. Dashboard
views provide customers with actionable insight into the movement of
materials in their facility and the productivity of their entire fleet.
Armed with this information, operators can track progress towards
facility goals, analyze trends, and proactively optimize their

Seegrid also provides improved insights into vehicle productivity with
enhancements to Seegrid Supervisor, the fleet management software that
executes flawless material movement and connects the smart factory.
Supervisor now manages more tasks, such as the automatic pairing of
available vehicles with work tasks, standardization of vehicle
behaviors, and auto-building route maps.

"We are committed to helping customers drive process improvement," said
Seegrid Vice President of Product Jeff Christensen. "The expansion of
the Seegrid Smart Platform is designed around our top priority—helping
customers increase efficiency, optimize their operations, and ultimately
increase profitability."
