New Video on MHI View: AMRs for Flexible Workflow

Advancements in technology over the past several years have led to a rise in robotics and automation in the supply chain. More recently automated mobile robots, or AMRs, have been rising in popularity.

AMRs are a special type of automated guided vehicle. Where AGVs follow a set path in an operation, AMRs instead use an internal facility map and navigate along the most efficient route based on current conditions. It’s this flexibility that allows them to be a solution for a broad range of issues. Most commonly they are used as a solution to the workforce shortage seen by most operators.

Learn more about the benefits of AMRs and view the full video on MHI View.
