Autonomous mobile manipulators (AMMs) are a type of robotic system that combines the mobility of an autonomous mobile robot (AMR) with the manipulative abilities of a collaborative robot (cobot). Here are some reasons why AMMs and AMRs with cobots are increasingly being used in industrial applications:
Flexibility: Autonomous mobile manipulators and AMRs with cobots offer greater flexibility than traditional manufacturing systems. They can be easily reprogrammed to perform a wide range of tasks, making them ideal for small-batch or high-mix production environments.
Safety: Autonomous mobile manipulators and AMRs with cobots are designed to work collaboratively with human workers, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries. They also have built-in safety features, such as sensors and cameras, that allow them to operate safely in dynamic environments.
Efficiency: Autonomous mobile manipulators and AMRs with cobots can operate continuously without the need for breaks, reducing cycle times and increasing productivity. They can also work in parallel with human workers, allowing for greater throughput and efficiency.
Cost-effectiveness: Autonomous mobile manipulators and AMRs with cobots can be more cost-effective than traditional manufacturing systems. They require less floor space, have lower maintenance costs, and can be easily reconfigured to adapt to changing production needs.
Scalability: Autonomous mobile manipulators and AMRs with cobots can be easily scaled up or down depending on production needs. They can be deployed in a variety of applications, from small-scale production lines to large-scale manufacturing facilities.
Overall, the use of autonomous mobile manipulators and AMRs with cobots is becoming increasingly popular in industrial applications due to their flexibility, safety, efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and scalability.
Youibot's AMRS can be combined with any cobot (UR, Dobot...) upon request.
