What are the Benefits of Autonomous Robots??

An autonomous robot can make decisions by itself, without explicit human interaction. In other words, AMR (or Autonomous Manoeuvrable Robots), can be what they are more commonly referred to as.  In warehousing and supply chain environments, installing AMR solutions is the latest trend. As a result, the demand for these solutions has risen and continues to rise following these trends. This rise is due to the many benefits that your workplace will obtain following installation.

Some examples of AMR

Autonomous robots are beneficial to a number of industries. Their high levels of adaptability to different situations and environments enables them to be flexible and widely used. AMR can be installed in several situations and industries, some of which can be seen below:

Logistics Industry - whilst the capabilities of AMR's continue to advance with the rest of technology, the logistics industry is when autonomous robots are most widely used. AMR's have the ability to transport items or materials of varying sizes and weights around the workplace. For humans, transporting items is physically taxing, yet tedious. Thus, using AMR's enables your human workforce to concentrate on more important and complex tasks.

E-Commerce - this includes moving carts, mobile manipulation and more. Whether it's order fulfilment, returns handling, inventory management or sortation, AMR's remain adaptable to each e-commerce situations.
