Providing Reliable and Cost-Effective Power to AMRs

Providing Reliable and Cost-Effective Power to AMRs

April 2, 2024


Unlike stationary systems, mobile robots must be self-sufficient. This means that they must carry their power source along with them—making weight, efficiency and operational life crucial considerations.

Autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) are robotic vehicles that operate without the need for human control or intervention. Not to be confused with automated guided vehicles (AGVs), AMRs typically move dynamically around any obstacles they encounter. They are usually also smaller than AGVs.

The advantages of AMRs are numerous. They are a highly efficient transportation solution, able to do what they are programmed to do each and every time. With their relatively small vehicle footprints and dynamic movement, they are well suited to space-limited environments.
