What You Will Learn

Discover how Universal Logistics deployed collaborative automation using cloud-based autonomous mobile robots (AMR) solutions in their 1 million square foot facility in Smyrna, TN, which provides inventory management and logistical support for Nissan Motors. With an annual capacity of 640,000 vehicles annually, the Smyrna manufacturing site is the largest automotive manufacturing facility in North America. In this session, you will learn how AMRs addressed key issues such as local labor shortages, cost control, risk reduction, increasing output, and employee enrichment. Specific use cases will be shared to demonstrate possible AMR applications, as well as how these solutions can be scaled across multiple facilities.
 

Key Takeaways

-Cloud-based AMR solutions can be deployed rapidly (less than one week) into existing facilities with no additional infrastructure.
-Flexible AMR solutions allow custom integration with devices such as barcode scanners to request and dispatch AMRs on-demand.
-Learn how cart-based AMR solutions have a significant advantage over fixed AMRs, including increased workflow collaboration, higher robot utilization, and less congestion.
-Demonstrated solutions for AMRs in a manufacturing operation, including putway/ replenishment and production line feed.
