Summary

Autonomous material handling equipment like smart, self-driving fork trucks, pallet trucks, and tuggers are becoming a standard tool for facility operations and are often key for maximizing throughput and staying competitive. Selecting the right solution and operating platform can increase efficiencies by up to 30%, extend the staff you already have, and even provide an immediate ROI.

Andrew Jackson of Vecna Robotics explains what Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) are, how they work and how they differ from other automated equipment. Learn what to look for when exploring whether autonomous material handling equipment is right for your facility.

In this webinar, you'll learn:

  • The different kinds of automated platforms and how they work (AMRs, vs AGVs & VGVs)
  • How to know if you have the right application for autonomous equipment
  • What the deployment of AMRs into a facility looks like
