The latest 3D camera and sensor innovations are keeping mobile robots moving.
The continued popularity of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) in warehouses, distribution centers, and factories has forced the evolution of technologies that allow these robots to navigate challenging environments.
In these environments, AMRs must navigate obstacles and work alongside people. Lidar and 3D time of flight (ToF) technology allow robots to interpret 3D data and distinguish between objects.
The technology must adhere to safety standards. RIA recently introduced the first national safety standard for industrial mobile robots, which provides technical requirements to support the safety of people who work near these robots.
In a recent A3 article TECH B2B account executive Jimmy Carroll spoke with industry leaders to discuss current technological capabilities, as well as how the technology is expanding to keep up with demand.
