This article brings together the 4 main differences between autonomous mobile robots and self-guided vehicles.
Autonomy: Thanks to its lasers and its Artificial Intelligence specialized in indoor navigation, autonomous mobile robots are able to navigate in complex environments in the presence of operators and handling equipment, while ensuring optimal efficiency in their transport . They are able to steer around and avoid obstacles, unlike AVGs which can detect obstacles in front of them, but are not able to steer around them. So they simply stop until the obstacle is removed.
Collaboration: AGVs are limited to their own traffic lane while AMRs are able to circulate in the presence of employees and the general public.
