Warehouse Automation: Automatic Guided Vehicles & Autonomous Mobile Robots

The two may seem very similar, however, several key factors set an AGV and an AMR apart. The biggest difference between the two comes down to how they move through a facility.

Automation - no need to rip and replace

The concept of full automation could be daunting, especially considering the cost, time and disruption that go into building a brand new factory or warehouse - this just isn't a viable option for a large proportion of businesses.

Mobile Robots and the Smart Factory

Mobile robots move around a factory floor independently without any cages in order to perform their tasks. Despite not having fencing around them, mobile robots are completely safe to use alongside humans in the workspace.

HelMo mobile robot system brings flexibility to the connector assembly line

HelMo is capable of navigating with complete autonomy by permanently monitoring its environment with three integrated laser scanners and can perform its tasks either fully automatically or in collaboration with humans.
