The market for industrial mobile robots has been experiencing high growth rates for years.
While automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are mainly used in intralogistics, autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) can not only transport goods, but also take over tasks in manufacturing, assembly and service applications.
Especially in the automotive industry, AMRs help to meet the ever-increasing challenges such as a greater number of models and shorter model cycles. Production processes are changing from rigid production lines to flexible structures with freely interlinked assembly stations.
Mobile robots also open up new potential in trade and industry. They can clean floors, reliably record stock levels, or recognise incorrect price labels.
ifm offers localisation, navigation, obstacle detection and collision avoidance solutions based on identification systems and industrial imaging. In addition to 3D cameras, our product portfolio includes powerful on-board VPUs and multifunctional displays.
