Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR) has introduced its MiR100 autonomous mobile robot to the North American market.
Traditionally, transport logistics robots required that the surroundings be remodeled to accommodate in-floor tracking systems for the robots. But MiR100 is designed to be highly adaptable, finding its way around obstacles and changes in the environment.
MiR100 is designed for small-task indoor transportation of items in the manufacturing and healthcare markets. Programming and operation happen through an intuitive interface accessible via a smartphone and tablet app (iOS and Android) or PC application in just a few hours without additional implementation costs.
The robot can either “identify” its drive area and surroundings or import 3-D drawings of the building layout. Built-in sensors and cameras enable the MiR to be used for safe collaborative operation in an environment with people as it automatically stops and routes around obstacles. MiR100 has a carrying capacity of 220 pounds and can tow approximately 660 pounds. Various custom module solutions can be added.
