AGV robot

Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) are a type of Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV). The main thing that sets AMRs apart from a common AGV system is its level of complexity and autonomy. Autonomous Mobile Robots are usually more advanced regarding what task they can do and what surroundings they can navigate.

AGVs usually carry out a more limited set of tasks such as moving material from one location to another along a predetermined path. AMRs handle surprises along the way more intelligently and autonomously plans new paths according to the current situation. AMRs usually have more computing capacity and can communicate with other robots while AGVs are controlled from a centralized system. AMRs are commonly equipped with robotic arms that carry out finer tasks while an AGV does the heavy lifting that requires less sophistication.
