What are the primary benefits of Autonomous Mobile Robots?

1. Increased Flexibility
Since Autonomous Mobile Robots rely largely on onboard cameras and sensors for operation, and not magnetic tape or wires as with AGCs and AGVs, they are a model of the flexibility, agility and automation. Instead of following fixed routes, Autonomous Mobile Robots are able to dynamically create their own efficient pathways between Point A to Point B within a facility, helping them avoid obstructions. This flexibility also means that Autonomous Mobile Robots can be switched to complete new tasks relative ease, compared to other automation technology that generally require more time and effort to reprogram. Check out this Internal transport robot info for more.

2. Increased safety
Autonomous Mobile Robots are jammed to the gills by sensors and cameras. They allow the Autonomous Mobile Robots to perceive and comprehend their environment. This makes them able to move quickly within a facility and not have to come into contact with objects, people infrastructure or other obstacles. But, the equipment used by human operators (e.g. forklifts) are not equipped with as many safety measures and are dependent on human input. Autonomous Mobile Robots are much safer than human operators. Human operators can get lost or exhausted and could cause an accident. Utilizing Autonomous Mobile Robots to perform tasks that can be easily repeated will allow operations to reduce the chance of human error and drastically increase the security of the facility.

3. Rapid Implementation
Autonomous Mobile Robots are able to be operational in a single operation, which can take anywhere from four to six weeks, according to the requirements of an operation. (Especially important here are the picking software and warehouse execution software that the units will require integration with.) Even with the latest technology, this takes quite a long time. To give an example, it can take up to one year to establish a goods-to-person (G2P), system.

4. Ability to scale
Since Autonomous Mobile Robots are relatively easy to install within an organization, it's possible to implement an approach of modular deployment, starting with just a couple of units, and increasing the number as your operation grows and your requirements change. This means that you don't have to spend a lot upfront. Instead of buying massive quantities of Autonomous Mobile Robots they can be purchased just a few units and later increase your fleet. This modular deployment gives you money to invest in other projects, and also allows you to evaluate the impact Autonomous Mobile Robots affected your company and figure out your next steps.

5. It is easy to move between facilities
Some operations may be hesitant to pursue automation options because they know that moving to a new facility is likely in the near future. This makes sense. When the new facility opens and the current system is installed, it will need to be taken down in the next two years. Autonomous Mobile Robots are a great option in these scenarios to bridge the gap. Autonomous Mobile Robots can be deployed quickly and easily between facilities, that allows for automation for the short-term. Autonomous Mobile Robots are a great option for companies to temporarily operate during holidays, as well as operations that require moving in the near future.
