Covid-19 no obstacle to growth in AGV and AMR industry, report finds

The report features charts, data, insights, and analysis, as well as an executive summary, and is interspersed with quotes from industry leaders to give a comprehensive picture of the world of automated guided vehicles (AGV) and autonomous mobile robots (AMR).

LONDON, December 16, 2021 - Leading publisher and consulting firm STIQ (Styleintelligence) has published this year's STIQ AGV and AMR Robotics report. The report features charts, data, insights, and analysis, as well as an executive summary, and is interspersed with quotes from industry leaders to give a comprehensive picture of the world of automated guided vehicles (AGV) and autonomous mobile robots (AMR).

Despite the initial downturn in activity caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, growth began to return in the second half of 2020 and accelerated through 2021. Several AMR vendors suggested that the pandemic had actually acted as a catalyst for further automation. Geek+ is bullish on its growth forecast and has suggested that the conversation about automation has shifted from ‘should I automate?' to ‘how can I not?'
Hightlights include:
• An overview of the AGV and AMR landscape, including business models, segmentation, and technologies.
• The consequences for growth from supply chain disruptions and talent sourcing issues.
• The evolving profile of AGV and AMR customers and the vendors who serve them.
• Covid-19's impact on acceptance of robotics, including in new settings, such as in hospitals and schools.
• Varying perspectives among industry experts on whether very high growth levels will continue in 2022.

Waypoint Robotics/Productive Robotics Easy to Use, Omnidirectional 7 DoF Mobile Manipulator

Waypoint Robotics/Productive Robotics omnidirectional 7 DoF mobile manipulator combines the easiest to use, most capable omnidirectional autonomous mobile robot with the simplest and most flexible 7 axis collaborative robot arm. The Vector AMR's omnidirectional mobility enables fast, precise docking in any direction or orientation so the OB7 can perform accurate and precise grasping or picking tasks, taking full advantage of the cobots' 7 degrees of freedom (7 DoF) and superior dexterity. It can be powered using Waypoint's EnZone wireless charger that provides on-demand energy and opportunity charging for longer run times. Workers can use this mobile platform to perform repetitive tasks such as machine tending, quality assurance sampling, material replenishment, packaging, and many others, so they can focus on the high skilled jobs for which they are uniquely qualified. It has never been easier or more cost effective to deploy a mobile manipulator for manufacturing and logistics applications.
