What would be a realistic price point? Running full tilt a single unit could replace 10 miles of material transport back and forth, and would run on its own so no need for an operator.

In essence, a Burro would function as a virtual conveyor belt from a pick point to a collection point.

Here is a picture of one. They were on very steep slopes, some were a monorail and others had two rails, elevated with a little engine (gas I guess) and cars.

We are making progress on our product, and have a survey for customer feedback.

Could anyone on the forum that has an interest in a robotic following cart fill this out? Thanks!
