Tennant launches its first autonomous floor care machine capable of operating in complex, real-world environments without direct operator control. The first Tennant autonomous solution, the T7 floor scrubber debuted at the ISSA/INTERCLEAN show with further expansion into global markets and additional models to follow.
Tennant Company recently formed a relationship with Brain Corp (“Brain”), an artificial intelligence (A.I.) company specializing in technology for autonomous robots.
The autonomous Tennant T7 seamlessly integrates Brain’s proprietary A.I. robotic technology software platform, BrainOS®, to deliver a cleaning solution designed to maximize productivity, increase efficiency and optimize safety. Brain is an industry-leading robotics software company specializing in the development of intelligent, autonomous systems that automate commercial equipment.
Like many other industries, the cleaning industry is undergoing a transition as a result of disruptive technologies that are driving greater automation. Robotics and artificial intelligence technologies have made significant inroads across multiple business sectors. Specifically, robotics offer smart, safe and sustainable solutions to repetitive tasks while allowing organizations and its employees to focus on higher value-added activities.
Throughout its history, Tennant Company has maintained a sharp focus on advancing the cleaning industry by aggressively pursuing new technologies. Tennant will continue this legacy with the introduction of autonomous machines to help its customers increase their cleaning efficiency.
