Autonomous Mobile Robots: The Latest Applications and Use Cases from Leading Suppliers and Users
June 17, 2020
11am - 12:30pm ET
ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
Autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) are changing the automation landscape. AMRs zip around vast stacks of products, ferrying the latest purchases for shipment across the world. They are replacing forklifts, pulling 1,000-kg payloads around a factory. Robots are stitching together production processes by moving products from one conveyer belt to another. They’ll even clean the floors.
Join AMR industry leaders for the latest in the Association for Advancing Automation’s series of executive roundtables, moderated by Robert Huschka. You’ll learn more about AMR technology, explore potential use-cases, and see how you can apply them in your business.
