Robotic Blog Series

When the Internet was booming in the 90’s, we were convinced that all sci-fi movies would become a reality by 2000. Even though we do have video calls, cleaning robots, and e-commerce, we are still implementing and developing Industry 4.0 technology.

In this Blog Series you will find all information you need to choose the right hardware for your mobile robotic application.

Welcome to the Mobile Robotic Hardware Jungle! Choose the Hardware That Better Adapts to Your Need

Looking to source hardware for Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) or Automatic Guided Vehicle (AGVs)?

Summer is here! You have probably been daydreaming and counting the days to finally leave the office, get on a plane and land on a peaceful, green tropical jungle in the Caribbean or Central America.

Jungles are interesting places for birdwatching, trekking, and hiking. They are great places to reset your biological cycle and reconnect with nature, really. But they are not the magical, static, peaceful places we think of. A full-on battle for resources is going on under our noses.

What does this epic battle have to do with mobile robotics?
