Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) are one of the exciting technologies in the robotics and automation sector. AMR deployments for warehouse and industrial operations are surging, and this growth is expected to increase for the foreseeable future. Autonomous Mobile Robotics Week was designed to address these challenges and alleviate the burden of AMR selection, adoption and management.

  •     AMR Types and Demand Drivers
  •     AMR Features and Capabilities
  •     Representative Products
  •     Case Studies
  •     Safety and Standards
  •     New Enablers
  •     What’s Next
  • Autonomous Mobile Robots Week Roundtable discussion will discuss key components that are often overlooked when selecting and implementing an AMR solution. Logistics centers are aggressively adopting AMRs to support fulfillment operations. Other industry sectors, too, can benefit from the smart, flexible automation that AMRs provide.

  • Integration with existing infrastructure
  • Interoperation with existing automation processes
  • Configuration and deployment
  • Fleet management and pick optimization
  • Safety, security and control
  • Failover and intervention management
  • Monitoring, auditing and analytics
  • Autonomous mobile robots are still in the relatively early stages of adoption. The systems differ on their approaches for common applications, as well as the business and service models employed by the companies offering them. Issues related to deployment, integration and scalability also come into play. Taken together, these issues (and more) make evaluating mobile systems problematic.

  •     Mapping and Navigation
  •     Communication and Security
  •     Power and Power Management
  •     Fleet Management and Control
  •     Example Use Cases
  • Autonomous Mobile Robotics Week (AMR Week) is held every year in November. AMRs have proven themselves in the field, providing real business value for delivery, material transportation, remote sensing, and other applications on the factory floor, in warehouses and distribution centers, as well as in public places such as airports and retail stores.

  • Different types of mobile robots in an industrial environment
  • To understand the motor drives subsystem enabling robot movement
  • Explore standards, such as ISO 3691-4 related to mobile robotics functional safety considerations
  • Mobile Robotics Robotics Week kicks off this week. Join us for a panel of experts to discuss the future of robotics. For more information, visit mobileroboticsweek.org or follow them on Twitter @RobotWeek. For the full schedule, visit robotweek.com.
