AMR Basics

Is Autonomous Mobile robot (AMR) better than Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) ?

AGVs have traditionally been the industry’s preferred solution for intralogistics deliveries. However, one of the shortcomings is their dependency on installing physical guides such as magnetic tapes or QR codes for navigation, making it tedious to set up additional delivery routes and stations. In addition, AGVs will stop every time there is an obstacle in their path, which delays the delivery time.

Why factories need Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) and a checklist to guide your selection of AMRs?

The biggest growth drivers for this market are rising labour costs in developed markets, reshoring the supply chain due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and the adoption of intelligent manufacturing practices to keep pace with the competition.

How to Deploy Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) in your facility and the Key Considerations to successful implementation?

AMRs are helping businesses tap into the benefits of industry 4.0 by enhancing manufacturing and material transportation processes, thus successfully resolving these COVID-19 challenges in numerous ways.  However, AMRs can be daunting for those who are new to them. Most businesses don’t have a clear idea about when to implement AMRs, which processes should be automated, how to safely deploy an AMR and the benefits they can derive from automation.
