The automated guided vehicle (AGV) market has become almost saturated but is now stagnated due to the difficulty of developing products for new applications. The next generation of AGV systems need to be smarter and have more flexibility. Autonomous mobile robots (AMR) will become prevalent in several vertical markets such as logistics, medical, agriculture and mining. As labor costs increase, more swarm robotic systems will be developed and deployed to perform repeated tasks.
Autonomous mobile robots are better than automated guided vehicles
Intelligent path planning, sensing, obstacle avoidance
Tape, track or QR Code assisted identification command logic; lack of flexibility
Uses simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) to create maps, no extra effort required
Manual control by tape, track or QR Code
Dynamic detection and avoidance obstacles
Manual removal of obstacles
Sensors combine camera detection and DDS QoS to realize real-time collaboration
No human-robot interaction (HRI), only during debug operations
ROS 2 decentralized system allows smart devices to communicate with each other in real time
Centralized system only
Moving from AGV to AMR
A well-known 3rd-party logistics company wanted to integrate the latest ROS robot technology into their next generation AMR with advanced features that would allow it to efficiently and accurately navigate through a variety of environmentsLearn More
