AGV and AMR: Automation devices create more possibilities for industrial logistics

In the field of industrial automation and logistics, Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) and Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR) are two common types of automation equipment. They both enable automatic handling and transportation of goods, but there are some significant differences in their technology and applications.

Differences between AGV and AMR:

Navigation System:

AGVs typically rely on pre-installed magnetic tapes, navigation signs, or laser guidance facilities for navigation. This method of pre-setting navigation paths is highly effective for fixed environments and repetitive tasks but faces limitations when frequent layout changes or dealing with complex, irregular environments.

AMRs adopt more advanced autonomous positioning and navigation systems, such as Reeman’s SLAM 2.0 technology. SLAM technology allows AMRs to perceive and understand their surrounding environment in real-time, enabling highly accurate navigation in unknown or dynamic environments. This autonomy allows AMRs to plan their own paths, avoid obstacles, and adapt to different work scenarios.

Adaptability and Flexibility:

AGVs often rely on pre-set fixed paths and facilities, making them relatively limited in adapting to layout changes or handling complex factory environments.

AMRs, with their autonomous navigation systems, possess higher adaptability and flexibility. The navigation method without the need for markers allows AMRs to adjust to different working environments seamlessly. Through central scheduling systems and multi-robot cooperation, AMRs can achieve orderly operations and efficient coordination, further enhancing the efficiency of logistics transportation.


Why AMRs are more suitable for the current market:

Rising Demand for Automation:

As industrial automation levels continue to improve, and the demand for production efficiency increases, there is a growing need for automated handling equipment. AMRs, with their flexibility and autonomous navigation, can meet the diverse automation handling requirements of various industries and adapt to the modern trend of factory automation.

Adapting to Complex Factory Environments:

Modern factories often deal with diverse products and production layouts, and AGVs, with their fixed paths and pre-set navigation, struggle to adapt to these complexities. AMRs’ SLAM navigation system allows them to navigate and plan paths accurately in complex environments, better meeting the diverse demands of modern factories.

Improved Production Efficiency:

AMRs’ high payload capacity and flexibility make them excel in material handling and sorting tasks. For example, Reeman’s large dog AMR efficiently handles large quantities of goods, while the Fly Boat AMR is suitable for carrying loads, providing efficient and stable material supply to the production line, thereby enhancing overall production line efficiency.

Future Trends in AGV and AMR Development:

Intelligent Upgrades:

AGV and AMR will continue to integrate more advanced artificial intelligence technology to enhance their environmental perception, path planning, and task optimization capabilities, achieving more intelligent operations.

Multi-Robot Collaboration:

As production scales up and logistics demands increase, multi-robot collaboration will become a future trend. Through coordinated work, multiple AGVs or AMRs can efficiently cooperate to improve logistics transportation efficiency.

Enhanced Safety:

Safety has always been a major concern in AGV and AMR development. Future AGVs and AMRs will further strengthen safety measures to ensure safe interactions with personnel and other equipment.

Software-Hardware Integration:

AMRs will focus more on software-hardware integrated design to provide users with more user-friendly, efficient secondary development, and customized services to meet the personalized needs of different industries.

AGV and AMR each have their advantages in the automation equipment market. However, due to the advantages of AMRs in flexibility, autonomous navigation, and payload capacity, as well as the support of future technological trends, AMRs are expected to better meet the automation requirements in the industrial and logistics fields. The continuous innovation and application cases of Reeman’s large dog AMR and spacecraft AMR products bring new possibilities to the industry’s development.
