Next-Generation AMRs at Automate

The impact of labor shortages will continue well beyond 2023 as the effect of aging populations and a reluctance to take on low-paid, dull, dirty, and dangerous jobs increases. As labor issues increase, automating internal logistics in manufacturing and warehouse environments with autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) is a cost-effective solution. At Automate 2023, attendees saw a full range of AMRs and new software capabilities from several key players in automation including ABB, MiR, and Locus Robotics.
