Intelligent Autonomous Mobile Robot for Material Handling

Technology Overview

Intelligent Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) with high degree of flexibility and open platform (compatible with major operating systems), enabling end-to-end materials handling for last mile delivery.

  • Universal smart navigation kit TruePath, which can also be used to upgrade magnetic strip based AGV to AMR
  • Real-time, intelligent route planning, precise motion control, re-localization in the 2D/3D map, map building, fast automatic docking, with front and rear 3D safety protection
  • Navigate through narrow spaces with dynamic obstacle avoidance
  • Multi-robot coordination with proprietary time synchronization and planning behavior algorithm
  • Flexible fleet management and extensible manipulator integration

Technology Features, Specifications and Advantages

  • Standard software and hardware interface, enabling quick reconfiguration of AMR
  • Repeatability:
  • Translational X & Y : +/- 6cm
  • Rotational Z°: 5°
  • Small footprint with highest payload within its class up to 250kg
  • Multi-sensor fusion for precise navigation
  • Provide Front/Side docking, where it can fulfil most of the logistics needs
  • Fast charging function, cooperate with task scheduling to increase utilization rate

Potential Applications

Warehousing and logistics:

  • AMR with shelf modules for transportation of semi-finished or finished goods between productions, between production and warehouse and/or in warehouse logistics.
  • AMR with robot arms and gripper for pick-and-pack to move items between production lines or from production lines to delivery.
  • Multi-robot coordination with AMR fleet management system for high degree automation and flexibility operation

Adjacent Markets:

  • Security and surveillance
  • Workplace safety inspection
  • Hospitals and Healthcare
  • Cleaning and disinfection
  • Hospitality

Customer Benefit

  • Standardized, modularized hardware and software interface – quick reconfigure and integrate with various modular components (e.g. shelves, robot arms)
  • Open software platform (ROS-based) – enable communication and integration with external system (e.g. lift, door)
  • Quick turnaround commissioning
  • Secured remote access for remote monitoring and troubleshooting
  • TruePath navigation kit: Cost effective solution to upgrade conventional AGVs to AMRs
