Cervoz Technology Co., Ltd. introduces its storage and memory solutions for AMRs (Autonomous Mobile Robot).
For the past few years, businesses increasingly turned to automation to address the fast-changing environment as the Covid-19 virus beset the world.AI/ML, and even robots can accomplish jobs done by humans. Will they replace the human workforce? Some might tend to think it will be the case. But if there is ever a severe labor shortage, we will need all technological help.
One of the earliest industries where robots are making the most impact is in the manufacturing domain. However, the advanced technology wave has pushed not only the robot itself to autonomous mobile robots but has also spread to various industrial fields, including retail, banking, healthcare, and agriculture.
Why adopt autonomous mobile robots?
Starting to leverage the technology of AMRs can transform a business workflow. AMRs provide other benefits as well.
Work faster and more effectively
AMRs give manufacturers and distributors an automated way to transport materials from various loading locations to their unloading points, which improves the efficiency of intra-operational delivery.
Increase safety and higher flexibility
AMRs enable businesses to move materials safely with improved collaboration from low to high load transportation tasks. Using AMRs requires less infrastructure since there are no magnetic tracks or wire strips necessary in their design. This allows businesses to optimize their shelving that suits their workspace.
Lower cost and reduce manpower
Due to less infrastructure for building AMRs and improved collaboration between machines and humans, manufacturers and distributors experience cost savings.
An AMR must navigate safely through known and unknown environments while carrying out its assigned task in different work conditions with an uninterrupted system operation indoors and outdoors. Hence, mapping, localization, and navigation are the primary requirements for AMRs, resulting in real-time data collection from sensors and cameras with predictive-reactive capabilities that are crucial in AMR applications. AMR requires an AI computing performance to quickly process and execute sequential movements. In addition, numerous I/O interfaces for limited space are needed to connect with industrial cameras, sensors, batteries, gyroscopes, displays, and various electronic components.
Company’s solution for AMRs
The ability of AMRs to operate in various complex and flexible environments depends on reliable and durable storage and memory solutions in their design.
Industrial embedded module SSD
- Reliability in Complex Environments
AMRs must perform complex real-time machine vision analysis and simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) algorithms. Like edge processors, they must have processing and storage capabilities to perform the required complex processing. The firm’s T376 family of storage products provides capacity and high transmission speed ability to solve these challenges. Created with features including the high IO/s, 3D TLC-technology storage modules arrive in a wide temperature version with thermal sensors, conformal coating, a DRAM buffer, and the company’s Powerguard (power loss protection). Together, these features enable the products to perform at their optimum despite the AMRs operating in different temperature conditions. The T376 family is in diverse form factors, from 2.5 SATA, m SATA SSD, and M.2 2280, all compliant with the 6Gb SATA interface. They would be the selections for AMR applications.
- Durable with performance DRAM module
To add more endurance to performance, the firm’s DDR4 wide-temperature SO-DIMM offer temperature flexibility (-40° to 85°C) and performance, a small form factor, low power consumption, and reliability. All features make them or space-constrained industrial applications, including AMRs.
- Instantly expand connections
The firm’s expansion cards provide extra I/O ports, technology, and functions. With the company’s MEC products (MEC-WiFi/MEC-LAN/MEC-COM), AMRs can do more beyond their connectivity limits and expectations.
The company’s memory and storage solutions are for demanding operating conditions and functions of AMRs. The firm deliver reliability and stability for specific robotic tasks. Whether designing solutions for industries such as logistics, medical, delivery, or hospitality, the company has solutions to meet AMRs application requirements.
