Toyota Material Handling Europe will team up with Croatian technology company Gideon to develop software for autonomous mobile robots (AMRs).

Toyota Material Handling says that by combining Gideon technology with its own vehicles, the company will be able to provide automation for a wide range of logistics applications and significantly shorten project implementation times. 

Gideon has already developed case picking solutions for retail order fulfilment, as well as truck unloading and loading. 

Gideon chief executive officer Josip Cesic says: ''Toyota’s expertise in materials handling equipment and market coverage, combined with Gideon’s software suite and our focus on specific applications provides value proposition for end-users that is unparalleled.'' 

Patric Hed, senior vice president of logistics solutions at Toyota Material Handling Europe, adds: “Gideon have developed an impressive software stack and vision modules, combining flexible intelligent autonomous behaviour with specific logistics application focus and user-friendliness that will add value to our customers over the coming years.”   

Toyota plans to present new application solutions to the market during 2024, starting with order fulfilment solutions for retail distribution.
