Mobile robots continue to be among the most popular types of automation making their way into warehouses and other types of facilities. Companies of all sizes seek them for their relatively quick installation process and for the ability to scale up or down fleets.
Automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) have different missions from collaborative robot arms or cobots, but they share similarities in being designed for ease of use and scalability. Managers looking to build or expand robotics deployments must understand their own processes to determine which are best to automate versus keep manual.
In this free download, see what robotics suppliers, software providers, and end users have to say about the technologies, business partnerships, and industry trends shaping collaborative mobile robots. Such systems offer advantages over fixed infrastructure including conveyors, but most facilities are still a long way from “lights-out.”
