RoboBusiness Direct is an ongoing series of digital events delivered by brightest minds from the leading robotics and automation companies from around the world. The series complements continuing coverage and analysis in Robotics Business Review, a sibling site to The Robot Report. RoboBusiness Direct is designed to impart to business and engineering professionals the information they need to identify market opportunities, successfully develop and deploy the next generation of commercial robotics systems, and accelerate their businesses.
The Business Value of Autonomous Mobile Robots
The use of autonomous, mobile robots for transportation and delivery applications has proven to deliver value and a quick ROI in industries ranging from healthcare, and retail, and on to construction, agriculture and more. But it is the manufacturing (material transportation) and warehouse/distribution (goods-to-man picking) sectors, which have been adopting mobile robotic automation solutions at the most rapid rate.
In this insightful RoboBusiness Direct session, Ash Sharma, Managing Director of Interact Analysis, an international market research and advisory services company focused on the industrial and supply chain automation sectors, will discuss the market potential for autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) for solution providers, as well as the benefits accrued to end-user companies from their use. Drawing on several recent research projects and reports that Interact Analysis has conducted in industrial and warehouse robotics, Ash will discuss where the market is going, and the reasons behind its current impressive growth rates. He will also provide particular insight into the effect of COVID-19 – including not just the short run potential for using mobile robots to allow social distancing in warehouses, but also the long term impact that the virus is having on the industrial automation strategies of many mobile robot buyers. AMR solution providers and case studies will be discussed to highlight saline points.
