April 5, 2022 – Lanner Electronics and MOV.AI are collaborating to provide Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR) manufacturers with an integrated computing and software platform for optimized performance and faster AMR development and deployment.
According to Fortune Business Insights, the global AMR market is expected to grow at an annual rate of 23.7 percent, reaching USD 8.70 billion in 2028. AMR manufacturers are expected to deliver intelligent and agile robots that can easily be integrated into existing, human-centric environments.
MOV.AI and Lanner have joined forces to deliver integrated robotics leveraging the Robotics Engine Platform™ with Lanner’s Edge AI computing appliance. This collaborative AMR solution simplifies the development process by providing robot manufacturers and integrators with both the machine vision computing and the software platform they need to quickly build, deploy, and operate intelligent AMR solutions optimized for industrial environments.
The MOV.AI ROS-based Robotics Engine Platform™ provides AMR manufacturers and automation integrators with navigation, localization, calibration, and the enterprise-grade tools they need for advanced automation. It includes a visual Integrated Development Environment (IDE), off-the-shelf algorithms and integrations, fleet management, flexible interfaces with warehouse environments such as ERP and WMS, and cyber-security compliance.
Optimized for AI functionality, performance, and ease of deployment, Lanner’s LEC-2290E is a NVIDIA NGC-ready Edge AI Appliance with NVIDIA® GPU Compatibility. “Lanner is pleased to partner with MOV.AI to offer the bundle solution that brings AMR to the industrial IoT edges,” said Jeans Tseng, CTO of Lanner Electronics. “Our expertise in creating purpose-built Edge AI computers, combined with MOV.AI’s state-of-the-art Robotics Engine Platform™, provides the industrial automation sector with a reliable AI-driven robotics solution that is both agile and intelligent.”
“AMRs today are required to operate efficiently in highly dynamic environments. They are designed to work alongside and in collaboration with humans, safely and without interruption,” said Motti Kushnir, MOV.AI CEO. “AMRs today are fast, AI-based, intelligent machines. The partnership with Lanner creates a powerful compute-software platform that allows AMR manufacturers to quickly build the agile robots expected by their customers.”
