First Autonomous Mobile Robot Conference Sponsored by A3 and RIA Set for September 17 in Louisville
Event Focuses Exclusively on AMRs with Feature Presentations from All Key Vendors and End-Users
By: Association for Advancing Automation
AMRs automate monotonous, repetitive and potentially injury-prone manual material transportation, freeing staff for higher-value activities. Unlike traditional, inflexible and expensive means of transporting materials, such as automated guided vehicles (AGVs), conveyor belts or forklifts, AMRs can be implemented without disrupting a building's permanent infrastructure with wires or magnets added to the floor. Easy programming, flexible deployment and built-in safety features add to the robots' appeal.
"Whether in manufacturing, logistics or even retail, AMRs are already proving to be a perfect tool for dynamic environments and on-demand automation,"
