AMR for New Robot Users

March 20, 2024
ABB Robotics has introduced the Flexley Tug T702 autonomous mobile robot (AMR), which is equipped with AI-based Visual SLAM navigation technology and the new AMR Studio software.

ABB Robotics has introduced the Flexley Tug T702 autonomous mobile robot (AMR), which is equipped with AI-based Visual SLAM navigation technology and the new AMR Studio software. It is designed to enable first-time robot users to program and operate entire fleets of mobile robots. 

Combining AI and 3D vision, Visual SLAM technology enables AMRs to make intelligent decisions, differentiating between fixed and mobile objects in dynamic environments. Using Visual Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (Visual SLAM), the robots can create a map that is used to operate independently, enabling fully autonomous operation in highly complex, dynamic environments alongside people. Maps are constantly updated and shared across the fleet.

The new capabilities offered by Visual SLAM are enhanced by the launch of ABB’s AMR Studio software (AMR Studio), which enables inexperienced users to create and configure AMR routes and jobs, with no programming knowledge needed. AMR Studio streamlines the process of setting up an entire AMR fleet from start to finish, guiding users through the necessary steps, from environment mapping to mission generation and system configuration.

Once the fleet is up and running, AMR Studio Fleet Manager software puts users in full control of what is happening on the shop floor. Intelligent order assignment ensures that orders are distributed efficiently, while real-time visualization and data monitoring provides full traceability.
