For years, speed and agility have inhibited greater throughput efficiencies and better ROI for pallet-moving robot fleets. Most AGV solutions top out at 1.7-2 meters per second, and remain inflexible to changing environments.
Vecna Robotics has broken the speed barrier, introducing the fastest robot fleet in the materials handling industry. Combined with Vecna Robotics’ best-in-class navigation, the Mark 3 software release doubles robot performance, without compromising safety.
The Mark 3 software release provides critical updates that deliver unprecedented performance, including:
The new performance upgrades results from Vecna Robotics’ ongoing work to improve vehicle performance using data collected over time through its proprietary 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.
The resulting data provides insights to understanding robot performance and behavior. With this information, developers update the software and push over-the-air updates to the robots in real time, so the robots work smarter and faster than ever before. Over time, customers benefit from:
Vecna Robotics’ AMRs are the only self-driving forklifts equipped with path planning and obstacle avoidance. In addition, they are also the only pallet-handling AMRs that can deploy cloud-driven updates for immediate in-field performance improvements. Customers can benefit from the Mark 3 release whether they are deployed through the cloud or through on-prem installation.
