Cyngn Inc. (the “Company” or “Cyngn”) (Nasdaq: CYN), has announced the release of its Auto-unhitch capability, a hands-off solution for our industrial autonomous vehicles to drop off cargo. This new feature enables organizations to automate the entire tugging workflow, enhancing operational efficiency and bringing greater value to customers.
Embedded within Enterprise Autonomy Suite (EAS), Cyngn’s fleet management and analytics software, Auto-unhitch seamlessly integrates with customers’ existing workflows. With just a simple touch of a button, a DriveMod Tugger can autonomously navigate to a designated stop, unload cargo without relying on staff, and then return to a central staging area for the pickup of new carts. The operators’ ability to activate this feature for any autonomous vehicle mission significantly enhances their capacity to streamline operational tasks while simultaneously addressing labor shortages.
“Implementing Auto-unhitch for our autonomous vehicle fleet represents a significant milestone in broadening our customer reach and catering to the diverse needs of businesses,” said Cyngn Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Lior Tal. “This advancement plays a crucial role in realizing the vision of fully autonomous workflows, eliminating the need to manually unload inventory. This not only allows customers to significantly improve productivity by minimizing vehicle idle time between stations but also empowers operators to focus on more valuable responsibilities.”
Cyngn’s Auto-unhitch capabilities include:
- Seamless Integration: Allows operators to incorporate automatic unhitching into existing workflows, which can be programmed before the shift begins.
- Safety Features: Includes audible tones and an on-screen alert to notify employees before the vehicle automatically unhitches cargo.
- Manual Mode: An on-vehicle toggle switch easily enables operators to manually open or close the hitch on their own.
Auto-unhitch represents one of many DriveMod-enabled skills that can help organizations revolutionize how work gets done. Recognizing that different companies have unique requirements, DriveMod offers a versatile set of capabilities, allowing businesses to tailor their autonomous solutions to not only specific environments, but also tasks. This flexibility ensures that Cyngn’s technology aligns seamlessly with the evolving needs of customers, providing a customizable end-to-end autonomous industrial vehicle solution.
