Not Robots but Solutions

Tractonomy’s Autonomous Towing Robot 2 (ATR2) is the world’s first intelligent, omni-directional tugger. It has an industry-first smart docking system that adapts to a wide variety of warehouse carts. ATR2 can safely tow heavy payloads on carts, even park them where needed.


  • Tow heavy carts, cages or pallets weighting upto 600kg or more.
  • Deploy multiple ATR2s with our fleet management software.
  • Exploit advanced safety and low maintenance.
  • Create simple human-robot collaborations.
  • Enable complex machine-machine interaction.

Innovative Cart Docking Solutions

ATR2 is  an AMR built specifically for handling all sorts of carts. Carts offer unlimited scalability in terms of materials size and weight. A unique cart docking system offers a solution that adapts to a broad range of carts weighing 600kg or more.

Carts with castor wheels and fixed wheels , or even carts with castor-wheels on all corners can be supported. The ATR2 offers two types of cart docking grippers.


  • Grippers that dock with a mechanical hitch on the cart – ideal for internal logistics
  • Bespoke grippers grab the cart without a hitch – ideal for external logistics

How it works

Starting moving your existing carts by adding a simple hitch or no hitch at all. ATRs use smart technology to identify carts and transport them to where you need them. ATRs can be deployed as a single or many robots. ATR solutions work as standalone solutions or integrate with WMS, ERP and in Machine2Machine (M2M) systems.

ATRs dramatically reduce driving and walking time leading to major savings in short periods. They offer a safe alternative to injury-inducing cart or pallet transport work and reduce risk of forklift accidents.
