Agile Performance and
The GoPal AMRs only require the same space as an employee with a pallet jack. In addition, the robot can rotate about its own axis, making it much more compact and maneuverable than competing AMRs. These features are critical when working areas and transport lanes at your facility have been optimized for pallet jacks.
All GoPal AMRs feature smart navigation, allowing the robots to make dynamic decisions along their route. If the robot encounters an obstacle in its path (e.g., a person, fork lift or pallet jack), it will simply circumvent the obstacle. If the path is completely blocked, the robot will automatically calculate and select the shortest alternate route to its destination.
Read our case studies to learn how the advanced performance and autonomous navigation in the GoPal solution have helped many companies automate their intralogistics, while saving costs and elevating employees to more valuable tasks.
Using advanced light detection and ranging (LIDAR) technology, the GoPal AMRs can map and autonomously navigate dynamic working environments populated with people and static/dynamic objects.
Mapping the facility is performed in stages as follows:
- LEARNING STAGE: The first stage is simply to take the AMR for a "stroll" (controlled by a smartphone/tablet) through the entire building to record the surroundings/environment using its sensors.
- ADJUSTING STAGE: The second stage is to adjust the map using GoControl by indicating any restricted areas, temporary features (e.g., dynamic objects and individuals).
- LOADING STAGE: The final stage is to load the approved map into all the AMRs, which are to be deployed in the building. This allows all the AMRs to autonomously navigate in a fully operational environment complete with co-workers and goods on the move.
