The Transbox project began to design the automation of the process of loading and unloading of vehicles on the railroad for Automobile factories. After analyzing possible solutions, Promaut has patented a scalable and flexible technology that allows vehicles to be loaded by rail cars through mobile platforms.
The next phase is to build the first prototype of Transbox to confirm the advantages detected in the previous studies. In addition, the Transbox project will be complemented with automatic guided vehicles - commonly known as AGVs - to automate the transport of vehicles within the field and make the factory vehicle exit system even more efficient.
Transbox is making solid progress and was recently strengthened after receiving a grant from the Center for Industrial Technological Development (CDTI).
