Warehouses are the backbone of any supply chain, ensuring the smooth handling, tracking, and movement of products. However, maximizing warehouse efficiency can be a complex task. Enter mobile robots, the game-changing technology that is transforming the warehouse landscape. Automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) provide an array of benefits that go beyond streamlined product transportation, ultimately optimizing operational costs.
Despite the undeniable potential of mobile robots, many warehouses are yet to fully adopt this technology. This webinar aims to delve into the key challenges hindering wider adoption, explore the remarkable benefits of integrating AGVs and AMRs, and equip original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers with crucial insights to establish themselves as trusted partners in the mobile robotics industry.

What are AGVs and AMRs?
AGVs, or automated guided vehicles, are mobile robots equipped with sensors and navigation systems that allow them to autonomously navigate within a warehouse, transporting goods from one location to another. AMRs, or autonomous mobile robots, are similar to AGVs but possess greater autonomy and decision-making capabilities, enabling them to adapt to dynamic environments and perform a wider range of tasks.
Why are mobile robots crucial for warehouses?
Mobile robots enhance warehouse efficiency by optimizing product transportation, reducing dependency on human labor, and ultimately lowering operational costs. They contribute to seamless orchestration of product handling, tracking, and movement, ensuring smooth operations within the supply chain.
What challenges hinder the wider adoption of mobile robots in warehouses?
Warehouse operators face a range of challenges when considering the adoption of mobile robots, such as labor shortages, budget constraints, space limitations, integration complexities, and skill gaps. Overcoming these obstacles is crucial to unlocking the full potential of mobile robots in warehouse operations.
How can OEMs and suppliers position themselves as reliable partners in the mobile robotics space?
By understanding the specific challenges faced by warehouse operators and offering tailored solutions, OEMs and suppliers can position themselves as reliable partners. This includes addressing budget concerns, developing flexible solutions, proactively recommending deployments, and establishing a network of trusted partnerships within the industry.
