Vecna Robotics has introduced Mark 3 software for pallet-handling autonomous mobile robots (AMRs).

Vecna Robotics has introduced Mark 3 software for pallet-handling autonomous mobile robots (AMRs). The software is designed to help warehouse, distribution and manufacturing organizations double fleet performance to improve efficiency and throughput.

The Mark 3 software provides updates that focus on:

Speed: Achieves a top speed of 3 m/s, 50% quicker interactions with pallet pickups, and better acceleration and deceleration times to improve average overall speed.

Free Space Reasoning: Introduces proprietary updates to Path Planning and Obstacle Avoidance to improve performance and handling in tight spaces.

Safety: Complies with the ANSI B56.5 and RIA R15.08 safety standards.

The new software results from Vecna Robotics’ ongoing work to improve vehicle performance using data collected over time through its Pivotal orchestration engine. Pivotal assigns work to robot fleets based on real-time demand, resource availability and proximity, and collects performance metrics from the production floor. By using fleet data collected from performance sites over time, Vecna Robotics’ AMRs get smarter and faster over time, while meeting and exceeding safety requirements.
