Mobile Robots and Autonomous Vehicles: IDTechEx Analysts Discuss How Coronavirus Pushes Logistic Automation up the Agenda
Last week Amazon announced that it planned on hiring 100,000 extra workers to meet the rise in demand for online shopping created by Coronavirus-caused shutdowns and social distancing.
The advancements in mobile robots technology have enabled manufacturers to develop robots suitable to their operational needs and carry out their implementation for their applications.
This is our first time at MODEX, so we're excited to see the latest innovations created for the supply chain to advance automation and overall improve logistics for these companies. Booth #9435
We have developed specialized lifting solutions to solve the problems with repetitive strain injuries of manual handling in most of the areas in a Distribution Center (receiving dock, storage area, picking area, shipping dock). Booth #2602
Attendees looking to demonstrate ROI, increase operational excellence, or drive continuous improvement initiatives will see how actionable analytics provide real-time visibility into key performance metrics. Booth #10012
In response to the growing demand for improved robotic assistance in industry sectors such as retail and light industry, we created MARS, the Mobile Arm Robot System, a robot with more sophisticated autonomous navigation and inspection capabilities.
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.
The concept of full automation could be daunting, especially considering the cost, time and disruption that go into building a brand new factory or warehouse - this just isn't a viable option for a large proportion of businesses.
Deployment of an automation solution that takes into account the process needs, the people as well as the technology, ensures businesses can introduce automation that can augment the workers' experience whilst also transforming productivity.
Your AGVs cannot fail, and so the choice of their motorization is crucial. Here are 5 key points to bear in mind when motorizing an AGV.
SmartSight™ with EMA50 mobile automation system delivers retail industry's first subscription-based robotic solution that turns data into corrective actions to drive better store performance
Intelligent robotic cameras that automate live transmission are used on stages, racetracks, and playing fields, operate autonomously - and provide a perfect TV experience.
Over the period of time we have strived to upgrade technologies in order to make our lifestyle more comfortable. We have introduced automation and robotics in order to reduce the manual labor required in manufacturing and production industries.
The trend of investment in and acquisition of mobile robotic companies seeking to automate the movement of goods within warehouses, fulfillment centers, and manufacturing facilities is still rising. Only in recent months, IDTechEx has seen three notable activities.
Machine vision is used in a variety of industrial processes, such as material inspection, object recognition, pattern recognition, electronic component analysis, along with the recognition of signatures, optical characters, and currency.
