Agility Robotics released its Agility Arc cloud automation platform for managing bipedal mobile manipulation robots in logistics and manufacturing operations at MODEX 2024.

Agility Robotics, creator of the bipedal Mobile Manipulation Robot (MMR) Digit, unveiled Agility Arc, a cloud automation platform for deploying and managing Digit fleets.

The Oregon-based company released the news at MODEX 2024.

Agility Arc to manage Digit deployment lifecycles

As customers begin deploying Digit for use in their operations, Agility Arc is designed to simplify the deployment lifecycle. From facility mapping and workflow definition to operational management and troubleshooting, Agility Arc hopes to make managing Digit fleets smooth and straightforward. Furthermore, Agility Arc will streamline fleet support, making it easier to see alerts, troubleshoot problems and contact customer support when needed, all in one place.

“Smart companies are looking to multi-purpose mobile manipulation solutions like Digit to automate themselves out of a very serious labor gap,” said Melonee Wise, CTO of Agility Robotics. “Agility Arc lets warehouse operators put Digit to work quickly and easily in the most critical workflows, starting with bulk material handling in warehouses, distribution centers and manufacturing sites.” 

In its first iteration, Agility Arc will provide customers with operational visibility into critical KPIs like uptime, throughput, Mean Time Between Incidents (MTBI) and robot status, allowing customers to understand what’s happening in the workcell and how Digit is performing.

Additionally, Agility Arc will provide industry standard APIs to simplify integration with existing Warehouse Management Systems (WMS), Warehouse Execution Systems (WES), and Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) among others.

As a cloud platform, Agility Arc will provide continuous software releases to enhance the customer experience. By leveraging the software-as-a-service (SaaS) model and industry-grade cloud capabilities, Agility Arc removes the hassle of managing infrastructure and provides unmatched security and scalability.

“Agility Arc will provide unprecedented levels of transparency into the operation of Digit fleets,” Wise added. “Our customers will be able to understand what is happening in their workcells and act upon that information, making it easier for them to design, commission, operate, and support their mobile manipulation fleets.”

Over the past year, Agility has worked closely with early adopter customers in the Agility Engagement Program (AEP) to understand their warehouse workflows and pain points, starting with tote handling use cases.

Agility Arc incorporated key insights and feedback from AEP participants about their deployment lifecycles and automation management needs. AEP participants will continue to have opportunities to influence the development of new Agility Arc features, as well as new skills and capabilities for Digit based on their real-world use cases.
