There are several issues to consider when deploying autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) into a facility. Obvious factors, such as payload capacity, speed, agility, and battery life are typically top of mind, but there are many other issues to consider as well. A successful implementation requires a tight customer engagement to clearly understand objectives, as well as productive design reviews so that customized solutions can be deployed that achieve ROI objectives. In this Autonomous Mobile Robots Week roundtable discussion, Jay Judkowitz, VP, Product at OTTO Motors, will discusses the key components – beyond the physical robot – that are often overlooked when selecting and implementing an AMR solution. He will share the critical lessons learned from customer deployments, along with helpful tips and important decision criteria that will ensure your AMR implementation is successful the first time out, and that will deliver valuable results for your organization.
