Robotnik has just launched to the market its AGVS platform with ROS architecture. It is an autonomous robot designed to transport logistics inside a hospital. The software of AGVS includes simulation and control packages in different work environments, maps generation, localization and route definition.

AGVS mobile platform is known for its traction system with two motors controlling direction and traction, so as an electrical axis to lift up and down the upper part of the robot, which is able to carry up to 500 Kg load. Moreover, AGVS provides two safety laser rangefinders (rear and front) allowing objects or people detection in its environment. Thanks to its Ackermann kinematic configuration, it can follow curves in an optimal way.

AGVS robot is currently implemented in some European hospitals, where it helps staff members in goods transportation tasks, optimizing time and resources of these hospitals.
