Application fields

 

 
 

Autonomous transport systems

 

Our platform enables autonomous mobility for any industrial transport system and paves the way for flexible networking of production stations. Without the use of artificial aids such as markers or track systems, obstacles can be avoided dynamically, areas of application can be changed as required, user-centered, plannable workflows can be tracked, and an entire fleet of AGVs can be orchestrated thanks to our tailored fleet management.

We provide independent consulting and on-demand integration of mobile transport systems: certifiable and context-specific to applications such as manufacturing, laboratory environments, hospitals, or other public sectors. With customized sensor setup, we also enable safe navigation in outdoor areas.

Mobile manipulation & robotics

 

In addition to autonomous navigation of the mobile platform, our integrations of mobile robot systems also include software intelligence for flexible location handling, assembly, and production tasks. Thus, especially for small and medium-sized companies and moderate lot size, classic (collaborative) robot systems can be better utilized and quickly amortized. Collision avoidance and optimal path planning can be implemented for both the mobile platform and the robotic arm.

We offer tailor-made implementation of use cases in production environments and beyond. Learn more in our technical article on the technology focus “on-demand pick & delivery with mobile robots.”

On-the-fly Asset Detection &
Localization

Using 2D and 3D cameras and advanced AI-based image processing services on Cloud & Edge, we recognize and locate objects using autonomous mobile systems. We realize asset detection use cases for optimized path planning, inventory, and networking of ERP systems.

Semantic mapping &
digital twin

Object recognition and localization provide extensive spatial and temporal insights into the environment of mobile systems. In combination with environment maps, semantic maps emerge from environments that reliably support automated or manual decisions. In terms of the digital twin, reliable planning can be carried out based on current data from the factory layout.

 

Modular Technology Portfolio

The foundation for an efficient and reliable implementation of mobile transport systems and robotics applications is the seamless interaction of our technologies. Using our modular system, we combine and network them accurately.
