Frequently asked questions about robots

An AMR robot (Autonomous Mobile Robot) is a robot that has the ability to move autonomously without physical elements for its location. It is commonly used in transport tasks in the areas of production and logistics.

AGVs (Automatic Guided Vehicles) have been around since the 1950s, usually for transporting heavy loads, but they run on a track or conveyor belt and along a predetermined route. The most advanced AGVs are capable of detecting obstacles, but not of re-routing: when encountering an obstacle, the robot will stop.

These are robots with the ability to move materials, parts, special devices or tools within a production line.

Their design is that of an articulated machine, capable of performing movements that a human could do, but with a higher degree of effectiveness and precision in industrial process tasks.

A robot specifically designed to perform, in an industrial environment, tasks that may be repetitive or heavy, such as handling, picking up and carrying goods, among others.

The use of mobile robots and mobile manipulators promotes the flexible and autonomous industrial automation needed to create Smart Factories, where the greatest asset is the exchange of information thanks to the integration of the latest intelligent technologies in robotics. Robotnik facilitates the integration of robots in both large industries and SMEs.

Collaborative mobile robotics is evolving hand in hand with Artificial Intelligence. We are developing autonomous mobile robots that will share space with humans and this implies that they have the capacity to “think” for themselves in certain situations and make decisions that a human would make, but as a machine.

The implementation of 5G technology in robotics brings with it considerable advances: speed, capacity and flexibility.

This means a new range of possibilities in the production chain, such as outsourcing data processing, whereby the high-load task of robots can be performed off-site.

The origins of robotics and the first robots have different names and dates, but there has always been a common goal: to prevent humans from performing the heaviest, most dangerous and tedious tasks.
