Business Value when Incorporating Mobile Robot
BREAKTHROUGH IN YOUR MANUFACTURING PRODUCTIVITY
From warehouses, distribution centers, manufacturing, medical to other challenging environments, it can be costly to manage and scale huge manual labour resources, especially for 24/7 demanding operations.
Automated, Intelligent Solution That Boosts Operational Efficiency
Reduce frequent human errors & dwell time
As operational demands increase, human errors and dwell time cause inefficiency in production output, resulting in additional resources needed for rework and to gain back your customer’s confidence.
OMRON Autonomous Mobile Robots encourage learning workflow by supporting and automating manual transport tasks. This eliminates human errors and dwells time, allowing employees to focus on more complex human skills.
- Smart, accurate detection of the shortest possible path
- Automatic alternative route planning
- Flexible factory layouts such as pickup and delivery points can be easily added
- Eliminate human errors/injuries associated with mobile equipment
- Complement traditional automation e.g. conveyors
- Can improve traceability of goods
Flexible Design With High Payload Capacity To Manage Goods Transportation
Reduce employee fatigue & injury due to intensive manual handling
Fatigue or injury can be common among workers who perform manual material handling overtime, especially in manufacturing and logistics-related industries.
Ideal for transporting goods throughout warehouses, distribution centres and manufacturing facilities, OMRON Autonomous Mobile Robots have a payload capacity of up to 287lb (130KG). Its flexible design enables various custom integrations to support various applications.
- Design can be customised for a variety of applications and payloads

Designed To Work Safely Around People
Overcome safety issues when machines and people interact
Managing safety hazards at the workplace is a top concern for using moving equipment.
OMRON Autonomous Mobile Robots are designed to intelligently navigate around people and unplanned obstacles. Unlike other robots that can only follow a fixed path, or aren’t centrally coordinated, OMRON Mobile Robots are equipped with onboard intelligence and sensors to avoid collision with humans and obstacles.
- Capable of full safety compliance
- Works collaboratively with people
- Avoid static and moving obstacles
- Easy addition of Emergency Stop equipment
Work Collaboratively In Fleets
Scale Up To Meet Operational Demands Fast With Intelligent Fleets Of Mobile Robots
Overcome limited operational growth and flexibility
With increasing production demands, increasing manpower to meet production needs in a short span of time can be challenging. Intangible costs involve training of new workers, human errors and more.
OMRON Autonomous Mobile Robots are designed to work collaboratively in a fleet. Achieve smart material handling and unlimited scalability with our autonomous intelligent vehicle today! With a central fleet manager that interacts with the factory or warehouse management software such as MES or WMS, it provides traffic control for vehicle routing to optimize plant operations.
- Job dispatch and management
- Centralised configuration, mapping and communication
- Traffic control for optimal vehicle routing
Easy To Deploy
Easy To Deploy. No Facility Modifications Required
Reduce Costly Infrastructure Investments To Deploy Robots
Traditionally, deploying Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV), often requires additional infrastructure modification such as floor magnets, tapes, or laser beacons, which demands high cost and frequent maintenance.
Omron Mobile Robots are fully autonomous – they can self-navigate entirely based on the natural features of the facility. No costly and time-consuming facility modifications are necessary.
- No need to pre-program the path
- Self-mapping with onboard PC
- Easy setup and short installation time
