What is an AMR?

An autonomous mobile robot (AMR) can be described as a vehicle or device capable of navigating an uncontrolled environment without the need for electro-mechanical, physical guidance devices or human operational control.

AMRs are rapidly becoming a more frequently employed goods to person picking solution, especially where the picking profile is based in a mid to high number of SKU’s with multiple picks and the goods are not too bulky or heavy, relieving the need for a larger more complex scale operation, like an ASRS (Automated Storage Retrieval System). AMRs deliver timely and financially beneficial solutions because of their flexibility and scalability.

AMRs also improve safety as they are less dependent on human operation for repetitive picks and will normally operate inside a contained storage area with limited or no human access (except for maintenance).
