2004: two young engineers, robotic enthusiasts, team up to automate a custom Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) for a large industrial glass company: it’s the beginning of BALYO’s adventure. Aware of the technology potential and market opportunity, they decide to found their own robotic company and create BALYO in 2005.

Then, they quickly focus on developing a navigation module concept, bringing a unique intelligence technology that turns standard electric trucks into standalone intelligent robots: the BALYO revolution can start.

In 14 years, BALYO has opened offices in three continents, deployed more than 500 robots worldwide, signed two strategic partnerships with two majors of the material handling industry and went public in 2017 (Euronext, Paris).

Your future needs

Usually, customers start their robotic investments with an installation of 3 robots (average). But keep in mind that our solution is designed to scale your operations up! After your first deployment, our experts are available to think about your future optimizations and new robotized material flows.
For example, after having automated supplies and removals of your production line, the next step can be to automate the vertical storage of your finished goods. Don’t forget, Robotics is a journey.


01 >

Let’s start with BALYO

Now that you’ve ordered your BALYO robotic solution, the whole project team will be focused on delivering the targeted performance level.
BALYO teams will drive your success by providing you with all the performance analysis you need (Statistic Tool) to understand how your robots and human operators behave.
All along your journey, we will recommend the best optimizations to successfully implement your robotized processes.

02 >

Your Project Kick-Off

The Kick-Off is the first step of the BALYO Project Management Process. Prior to the Kick-Off meeting, our project manager will prepare a list of documents including the application-specific customer specifications, technical specifications, the project risk analysis & the project planning. Then, these documents and milestones are presented to you during the Kick-Off meeting.

Before your installation 
After an internal validation of the Software and Hardware bricks needed for your robotic project, the manufacturing process starts. In parallel, our project manager helps you prepare everything before robot commissioning: IT infrastructure & Software interfaces readiness, risk analysis recommendations implemented, site adaptations made, etc. Once the robots are produced, we perform an internal commissioning to test and validate all the safety and functional features before shipping the autonomous forklifts to your facility. All the results are obviously shared with you.

03 >

Installation phase

Once the robots are delivered to your facility, the job of the field engineer in charge of installing your BALYO system starts: mapping of the building, routes design, pick & drop points design, testing etc.
During this phase, we validate all functionalities with you, as well as safety and interfaces tests/reports in real conditions. We also train your teams to work alongside robots in a new cobotic environment. The ramp-up of your installation is ensured by measuring performances all along the process until the handover milestone, where you officially take the lead on your robotic system!

04 >


The handover formalizes transfer possession and risk from BALYO or its partners to the customer, meaning the system can be run without the presence of BALYO or its partners. The handover may contain “non-blocking open points” which will be dealt with in a final fixes phase. A non-blocking open point is an issue which does not hinder the system to achieve its contractual performance.

05 >

Final Acceptance

The purpose of the final fixes phase is to close open points raised during the handover. When the robotic system is fully compliant to its specifications, the Final Acceptance is signed by all parties.

06 >


Now your robots are fully operational, your main contact will be the service team. Organized by level of maintenance actions (base truck, hardware, software), our group of experts will support you whatever the issue is, ensuring continuity of your operations at the expected level of performance.

07 >


Thanks to the BALYO Statistics Tool, you can track the performance of your system. Based on efficiency standards such as OEE or PackML data, our monitoring tool gives you the ability to follow and optimize your installation on a daily basis.
