Towards the objective of a two-pronged approach to hardware production and software development, ForwardX, which has developed a high-end AMR automation solution for the global medium goods warehouse and small and medium goods hybrid warehouse, is making steady progress. The operational effectiveness of warehouse systems was proven to be optimized after using their solutions. Examine the specifics of their offerings.
Implementers of automation: mobile robot classification
Mobile robots can be roughly divided into two categories.
AGVs (Autonomous Guided Vehicles) are transport vehicles with automatic navigation devices, such as electromagnetic or optical ones, capable of traveling along a predetermined navigation path, with safety protection and various shifting functions.
Advanced autonomous mobile robots like AMRs (Autonomous Mobile Robots) integrate environment sensing, dynamic decision-making, behavior control, execution, etc., into one system. The main application for it is automated logistics.
Vision-Based Autonomous Mapping: Future Trend
AMRs with vision-guided navigation use laser SLAM-based visual semantic navigation. Through the front camera, the visual semantic navigation primarily carries out visual sign identification, lane line segmentation, and shelf segmentation. Based on computer vision technology, the RGBD camera realizes location and the environment understanding and realizes fully autonomous navigation by the task instructions. To provide flexible obstacle avoidance and autonomous detours, it also recognizes motion targets. ForwardX is primarily focused on developing cutting-edge, useful AMRs.
Qualities of AMRs
AMRs have demonstrated their effectiveness in the field and are safer, more adaptable, smarter, and digitally helpful. AMRs have demonstrated success in enhancing warehouse management effectiveness. Information about ForwardX products, including top-notch hardware and software, may be found on their official website as a professional developer of full AMR systems.
