Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs)

Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) are flooding the market. That is the most striking conclusion after a visit to LogiMAT, Europe’s leading trade fair for internal logistics, held in Stuttgart from 31 May to 2 June. In fact, professionals who attended the fair hoping to explore the AMR market probably felt overwhelmed after a day of browsing the stands. Now, the real question is whether the market is actually big enough to support all of these AMR providers in the longer term.

What makes AMRs so appealing is the fact that they are scalable and flexible. Companies can easily set up a proof-of-concept without having to make major changes to their warehouse. If they like the results, they can quickly and easily deploy additional robots without first having to hire in a programmer for several days. However, companies looking for an automation system that can cope with high volumes probably need something else rather than just a few AMRs.

It’s not even always necessary to set up an ERP or WMS integration. For example, German technology company Bosch received an innovation award on the first day of LogiMAT for its stand-alone AMR concept. When an operator has prepared a dolly at a marked location, a sensor tells the AMR system that the dolly is ready to be picked up and taken off to its pre-programmed destination. Bosch has designed this AMR system primarily for the delivery and collection of goods in production/assembly lines.
