Choosing The Right AMR System
Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) are the future of warehouse and retail automation. Over the past few years, robotics technology has advanced to the point where using AMRs to improve the efficiency and versatility of your warehouse can be a realistic and practical investment. If you’re considering whether an AMR solution would make sense for your business, we’re here to help.
At Fetch Robotics, we understand how complicated it can be to make the right decision about a new AMR system. It’s much more than just looking at a spec sheet: the payload, speed, and battery life of robot platforms are certainly relevant, but there are a variety of nuances to autonomous mobile robot deployments that are important to consider as well. For example, how complex is it to integrate your new AMR fleet? How will your AMRs know where to go, and what if you want to make changes? Can AMRs truly work safely around people, pallets, forklifts, and all of the other things that are going on in your warehouse on a daily basis? And what exactly are the differences between modern AMRs and the older generation of Autonomous Guided Vehicles (AGVs)?
We’ve put together a series of articles designed to give you the information you need to answer these questions for yourself. These articles provide context for evaluating different AMRs in the market to help you choose the right AMR system for you. We want you to be as confident in your decision as we are in our robots!
