There’s a growing demand for automation in dynamic collaborative environments including e-commerce, logistics, manufacturing and hospitals. To address that demand, Velodyne Lidar and MOV.AI announced that they are collaborating to provide such enterprise-grade automation solutions as mapping, navigation, obstacle avoidance and risk avoidance.
The results of the collaboration, MOV.AI Robotics Engine PlatformT, powered by Velodyne’s Puck™ lidar sensors, provides advanced tools that allow autonomous mobile robots (AMR) manufacturers and integrators to address the challenges of safely moving in changing and unstructured environments like material handling and warehouse logistics.
The platform helps manufacturers quickly develop and deploy robots to operate in dynamic environments in which humans, manual machines and robots work side by side. The platform leverages the performance and reliability of the Puck sensor to allow mobile robots to traverse outside controlled situations and safely function in unfamiliar and unpredictable settings. The compact sensor can be embedded easily into robotics, providing high accuracy in complex indoor and outdoor environments.
The platform includes a visual Integrated Development Environment (IDE), off the shelf algorithms and integrations, fleet management, flexible interfaces with warehouse environments such as ERP and WMS, and cyber-security compliance. The solution provides ±2 cm accuracy for a 65 percent dynamic environment.
