The Evolution of Autonomous Mobile Robots
February 23,2023

An autonomous mobile robot can make decisions on its own based on a set of parameters it takes from its environment. This feature greatly increases the amount of flexibility in assigned robotic tasks. 

Production or distribution operations have been transformed by autonomous mobile robots (AMRs).

They frequently form an integral part of low-cost drop-shipping businesses and work tirelessly to assist industrial producers in getting their products to the consumers.

With these robots, big businesses like 3C industry, automatic industry, semiconductor industry and display pane industry would be easier to meet demand.

They aid in freeing staff from monotonous repetitive jobs, enabling them to work in locations better for their health and productivity.

Traditional production robots are stationary or move along a predetermined path. They are unable to decide for themselves how to complete the duties they are given to undertake.

An autonomous mobile robot can make decisions on its own based on a set of parameters it takes from its environment. This feature greatly increases the amount of flexibility in assigned robotic tasks. 

A brief review of mobile robot history

The concept of autonomous mobile robots is indeed not new, despite how unexpected it may seem. They have been used for a long time as models and tools for analysis and research.

The original AMR was created by William Grey Walter in the early 1950s. Elmer and Elsie were among his outstanding prototypes.

 For the progress of neurophysiology, these robots were employed in his research. They used a resonant cavity to replicate two linked neurons and a photodiode and bump sensor together.

His robots eventually came with a sound sensor. These robots have the ability to explore their surroundings and pick up new information.

Most early AMRs made use of extremely basic process control systems that consisted of a wire that was buried in the floorboards and a current that created a magnetic field.

Even though these early autonomous robots were less sophisticated than modern AI-driven robots, they laid the groundwork for the last 70 years' worth of technological advancements.

The present evolution of autonomous mobile robotics

Over the past few years, autonomous mobile robots have undergone a significant transformation.

Modern AMRs can complete a wide range of jobs and lower expenses across a wide range of economic sectors.

They have the flexibility to work long shifts and on holidays, which lessens the strain on employees during periods of peak production without having to pay for additional staffing.

AMRs enable automatic transfer or automatic loading and unloading of materials in each workshop and manufacturing equipment, and solve the problems of low efficiency and low product yield rate incurred by manual operation.

AMRS supports real-time feedback of various logistics data, automates material handling in production lines, line-side storage spaces, and storage bins, and makes the logistics data of production workshops interconnected.

AMR system connects multiple robots for communication, task assignment, editing, configuration, execution, etc. The user can flexibly complete the deployment and production use scheduling. 

AMR enables automatic material handling, three-dimensional storage, fast in/out storage, and efficient assembly line operation during the whole production process.

In a word, mobile robots have achieved an irreplaceable position in industrial logistics.
