ForwardX Robotics partners with Qualcomm to develop new autonomous mobile robots

ForwardX Robotics, a manufacturer of autonomous mobile robots for warehouses, is partnering with chipmaking giant Qualcomm to develop new robots.

The two companies showcased the results of their collaboration at the recent Hannover Messe event in Germany, where ForwardX and Qualcomm jointly gave demonstrations.

Qualcomm showcased its Robotics RB5 Platform with the ForwardX Flex AMR on display. The robotics platform supports 5G connectivity, AI and machine learning, superior computing, and intelligent sensing capabilities.

ForwardX Robotics has long focused on logistics and manufacturing services, and now is working with Qualcomm to develop its AMRs.

Nicolas Chee, founder and CEO of ForwardX Robotics, says: “We are looking forward to taking this opportunity from Hannover Messe to encourage in-depth exchanges and discussions with partners and customers around the globe.

“At a critical juncture of industrial transformation, we will contribute to high-quality and sustainable development of the global economy.”

In recent years, as the global digital transformation accelerates and the concept of sustainable development takes root, the industrial manufacturing field is facing great opportunities and challenges in terms of production technology, automation level improvement, and energy consumption and management.

For enterprises, meeting the increasingly personalized needs of the market with flexible production is key. Companies need to optimize energy utilization, improve production efficiency, and ultimately achieve green development to stay competitive in the market.

ForwardX Robotics says its visual AMRs provide services for various complex scenarios across different industries such as logistics, manufacturing, and retail.

The joint participation with Qualcomm gave ForwardX the opportunity to show global manufacturers the “innovative solutions it has to offer”, says the company.
