The future of warehouse robotics.
An autonomous mobile robot is a type of robot that can understand and move through its environment independently. AMRs differ from their predecessors, autonomous guided vehicles (AGVs), which rely on tracks or predefined paths and often require operator oversight.
What do automated mobile robots do?
Autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) use cameras, sensors, artificial intelligence, and machine vision to navigate through uncontrolled environments to complete various tasks independently.
What are the benefits of using an autonomous mobile robot system in a warehouse environment?
By using robotic technologies, warehouses can improve their productivity without affecting the quality.
Warehouse operators will be able to handle much larger volumes of goods per day, and robots can increase accuracy and accelerate repetitive processes when used alongside human employees.
Improved working conditions
Warehouse workers can rely on machines to handle heavy loads, which reduces the risk of serious accidents that can affect workers’ health and safety.
Reduction in the number of errors
Using robots reduces the risk of mistakes in routine operations performed in a warehouse, partly owing to a clear improvement in the transmission of information within the warehouse.
Cutting staff costs
Using robots in a warehouse reduces the need for a human workforce. It also significantly reduces the number of paid sick leaves, such as work-related accidents that represent significant costs for employers.
In addition, robots offer more flexibility because they can run continuously and only stop for maintenance needs.
