CartPilot Boosts Standard Picking Carts

Sept. 15, 2023
Cannon Equipment's powered-drive system turns manual picking carts into motorized carts for increased efficiency.

CartPilot is a powered-drive system that can be added to nearly any material-handling cart to boost warehouse, stockroom or distribution facility productivity.


Using Cannon's SmartPWR platform, CartPilot features easy-to-use controls and a battery-powered motor that allows a single operator to effortlessly move up to 1,000 lb. (45f kg) of materials.


Safety features include reverse object detection, safety beams, reverse backup horn, and zero-turn maneuverability. Ergonomically designed control buttons let operators quickly adjust transport speeds and cart direction, either forward or reverse. A 55-amp hour battery keeps the cart moving for up to 16 hours before needing a recharge.
