OTTO Motors introduces the next generation OTTO 1500. The OTTO 1500 V2 is the companys’ heavy-class AMR. First released in 2015, OTTO 1500 was one of the first large format AMRs to come to market with a 1500 kg payload capacity. Since 2015, the OTTO 1500 has logged 1,000,000+ production hours across North America.

This new generation of OTTO 1500 V2 increases the payload capacity to 1900 kg (4190 Ibs) and can move at 2,000 mm/sec (4.5 mph).
