The next evolution of industrial robots is here and they are autonomous. Traditionally manned forklifts have been used to transport materials.
The first step into autonomy was automated guided vehicles (AGVs), which require substantial infrastructure to be useful. We now have a new generation of industrial vehicles – autonomous mobile robots (AMRs).
They are fully autonomous and guided by natural features already present in a facility. They require very little effort to deploy so bringing them into your operation is not as hard as you might think.
With a few key pieces of information, you can understand how AMRs can transform your operation and what steps you’ll need to take to make this a reality. [Read more…] about Why AMRs Make Sense
