Freedom of Design

BluePrintWith Aethon as your partner, you can focus on structural design, not robotics. This fully autonomous mobile robot technology allows complete facility access without special infrastructure or design requirements: no tracks, wires, magnets or beacons. There’s nothing to detract from your building layout.   TUG’s small footprint allows travel all the way to the point of use, creating efficiency for unit-based care staff. That means long distances are bridged without adding courier staff and clean/soiled space can be minimized or reallocated.


 Value Add Without Added Budget

  • ElevatorsThe Aethon solution includes door and elevator integration for guaranteed compatibility and easy sourcing.
  • No special infrastructure or engineering means a very low install cost.
  • No planning specialists or engineers are required to accommodate the robots.
