THIRA Robotics has launched its autonomous mobile robots, which include features for safety and data privacy, for the U.S. healthcare, automotive, and supply chain markets.

THIRA Robotics Co. this week announced that it plans to exhibit its optimized autonomous mobile robots, or AMRs, at Automate 2023. The South Korea-based company said its AMRs are designed to overcome the weaknesses of the previous generation of AMRs in complex facilities.

“[The] first-generation AMR was optimized for facilities with low human traffic and smooth flooring conditions,” said Peter Kim, CEO of THIRA Robotics. “Our second-generation robotics are real-life-ready logistics, navigating settings with highly complex human traffic, sloped floors, liquid spills, elevators, narrow hallways, and more.”

THIRA Robotics is a subsidiary of THiRA UTech. It said it partners with global congolmerates, automotive parts companies, and Mando, the largest global Tier 1 original equipment manufacturer in Korea.

THiRA UTech said it is a leader in smart facility hardware and software. The company's global clients include Samsung Corp. and LG Electronics.

AMRs built for safey, privacy

Each unit in THIRA Robotics' product line uses its AWG system, which it said enables smooth wheeled navigation over challenging floors. The mobile robots also include a triple safety system, providing advanced visual recognition and stopping accuracy to reduce the potential for injury.

THIRA Robotics said has developed and manufactured all of its technologies, such as control software and electrical and mechanical design, in-house. The company offers its AMRs as “a turnkey smart factory total solution,” complete with its own operating system rather than a single device.

The AMRs never collect data from internal company records, protecting patrons' and employees' personal information, noted THIRA Robotics. The company claimed that it has won all of its bids against top competitors for AMRs in healthcare and supply chain use cases.

“In South Korea, we aided the National Cancer Center in overcoming labor shortages by augmenting 24/7 hospital staff services,” said Kim. “Use cases included food delivery, medication administration, surgical materials transport, infectious waste removal, and sanitization.”

“With Samsung C&T, our units helped construct a new semiconductor plant,” he added. “Leveraging [our] AMR, Samsung C&T reduced workplace injuries caused by forklift accidents and manual transportation of heavy loads.”

THIRA Robotics comes to the U.S.

THIRA Robotics officially launched in the U.S. in March as it seeks to aid U.S. manufacturers, hospitals, warehouses, and construction projects with its robots.

The company will hold live demonstrations in Booth 2450 at Automate, which will be in Detroit from May 22 to 25.
