A MiR500 Robot Lowers Transport Costs at Schneider Electric

The Schneider Electric Polska plant deals with the production of low voltage apparatus switches and accessories for these products. They have implemented an autonomous mobile robot MiR500 that transports finished products between the production line and the warehouse.

3PL's New Rack Supported Work Platforms Optimized for Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs)

While AMRs can be deployed in existing warehouse and distribution centers, some considerations should be considered to ensure they navigate and perform at their peak. Specifically, the durability and condition of the flooring upon which they travel.

How Top Modules Make AMRs Possible

An AMR without a top module is like a robotic arm without an end-effector tool such as a gripper-it lacks functionality. The benefits of AMRs are only realized-and maximized-with top modules and high-quality gates and carts that transfer the transported materials.

Next-Generation Industrial Robotic Capabilities Advanced by Artificial Intelligence

As barriers between human activities and robotic capabilities diminish - moving beyond the fenced activities of last-generation industrial robots - new collaboration and workflow models are bringing humans and robots together in industry.

Signs Your Warehouse Environment Needs Mobile Robots

Mobile robots in warehouses help companies increase their output and meet customer demands, allowing the companies to maintain a competitive advantage. Specific characteristics make warehouse environments particularly well-suited to these mobile machines.

The Future of Smart Logistics Automation

To manage growth in eCommerce and its associated challenges retail companies will need to embrace automation. Smart logistics provider Geek+ and market research firm Interact Analysis cooperated to create a whitepaper to discuss the future for smart logistics automation.

7 Questions to Ask When Choosing an AMR Multi-strand Conveyor Manufacturer

When your clients face unique challenges using AMRs in their processes, a conveyor attachment may help their process to be more efficient. Here are seven important questions to ask before selecting a manufacturer for your AMR multi-strand conveyors.

Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) Conveyors for Small Loads & Applications

When your clients are working with you to integrate lightweight autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), they're looking for the biggest bang for their buck.

Intralogistics: AGV vs. AMR

Until recently, AGVs were the only option for automating internal transport tasks. Today, a more sophisticated technology is competing with them: Autonomous Mobile Robots AMR. Although both AGVs and AMRs allow materials to be moved from point A to point B, the comparison ends there.

Brain Corp Raises $36 Million to Meet Growing Demand for Autonomous Robots

Brain Corp, an AI company creating transformative core technology in the robotics industry, today announced it has raised $36 million in Series D funding to help meet the growing demand for autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) now on the front lines of the COVID-19 health crisis.

AMR Innovation Arrives at MODEX 2020

Given the proliferation of warehouses, distribution centers, direct to consumer (D2C) business models, fleets of AMRs, questioning the validity of innovation is worthy of examination.

Making the Move to Mobile

Using a myriad of technology including sensors, lidar, infrared and machine vision, mobile robots are now able to operate in less stable environments. This means that mobile robots are no longer simple, guided machines.

Autonomous mobile robots can accomplish a variety of tasks.

Bob Violino for ZDNet:  Autonomous robots can perform actions or complete tasks with a high degree of autonomy, which makes them ideal for applications such as space exploration or cleaning your living room carpet. Mobile robots are capable of moving from place to place. Put these capabilities together and you got a powerful machine that can handle lots of tasks in industrial environments such as factories, as well as in hospitals, hotels, and other areas. And, in fact, one of the more prominent trends in robotics today is the growing popularity of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), with new vendors jumping into the market and sales on the rise. AMRs are modular, self-driving mobile robots that can be used for a variety of business applications, such as locomotion, mapping, navigation, and inspection.   Cont'd...
