The LMS laser navigation system is currently available in all MOBOT®AGV mobile robots . It provides mobile robots with autonomous movement with a high degree of adaptability. This means that they can be implemented for various applications in many areas of the enterprise. Importantly, this navigation method does not require interference with the factory or warehouse space, and its implementation and reconfiguration are very fast. It also allows you to avoid obstacles that AGVs encounter on their way.
MOBOT® AGV FlatRunner MW and MOBOT® AGV FlatRunner MW Light models are fitted with Mecanum wheels offering the widest movement ability and maneuverability. This drive system allows movement in any direction and 360 degree rotation. The effect of using this unlimited mobility and flexibility is to reduce cycle times and production downtime.
MOBOT®AGV FlatRunner MW Light is the latest robot in the MOBOT®AGV family with a load capacity of up to 1000 kg. Can autonomously move in any direction thanks to Mecanum wheels and LMS laser navigation. It is distinguished by an extremely compact construction with a height of less than 30 cm! It is adapted to transport pallets and various loads thanks to the possibility of easily equipping with an extension module, e.g. with automatic rollers. The robot can also be retrofitted with a load lifting system.
As every year, the award will be presented during the Intelligent Development Forum - a prestigious economic event dedicated to innovation, intelligent development and new technologies. This is an international debate with the participation of several hundred industry leaders - innovators and investors from the business, science and local government sectors.
