AMR (Autonomous Mobile Robots)

AMRs are self-driving robotic vehicles that can plot their own path to a given destination and navigate around obstacles. Their defining feature is that they run SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping) algorithms. SLAM algorithms enable AMRs to build a map of their environment and track their location on the map, providing the foundation for autonomous navigation. Depending on how advanced their autonomy technology is, AMRs can work safely around people, constantly update the maps of the facility they operate in, and navigate in unstructured spaces.
