As manufacturing companies contend with the impact of COVID on operations and supply chain, they are evaluating ways to become more resilient. Resilience in manufacturing means being able to adapt to change whether it is fluctuating demand for product or availability of labor to keep operations moving. For years, Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) have been considered a promising technology for materials movement because they provide the flexibility of human forklift or cart-based movement with the throughput and reliability of a fixed machine such as a conveyor – all while being able to work safely alongside operators on a factory floor. However, to date, there have been few examples of AMRs being deployed ‘at scale’ within manufacturing facilities.
