The demands placed on the functionality of autonomous robotic systems are significantly higher compared to conventional industrial robots. The aim is that mobile systems operate autonomously in unknown and dynamic environments to fulfill their assigned tasks. For this purpose, it is essential to explore and model the environment in a suitable way. The information gathered by sensors has to be combined to allow for an accurate positioning. In addition, the perceived surroundings have to be consolidated in an exact map representation. Having acquired this knowledge, the robot is able to plan an optimal collision-free path to a given goal and to perform complex handling tasks.
The Autonomous Mobile Robots industry was 183 million USD in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 597 million USD by 2025, at a CAGR (Compounded Annual Growth Rate) of 15.94% between 2017 and 2025. The market is driven by various end-user industries, such as hospitals and healthcare, manufacturing, logistics and warehouse and so on.
The key players are Swisslog (KUKA), Omron Adept, Clearpath Robotics, Vecna, Mobile Industrial Robots, SMP Robotics, Cimcorp Automation, Aethon, Locus Robotics, Fetch Robotics, Hi-Tech Robotic Systemz, Aviation Industry Corporation of China，Savioke and so on. Among them, Swisslog (KUKA) and Omron Adept are the leader of autonomous mobile robots market.
AMRs as the first and foremost manifestations of Industry 4.0, and the technological advancement brought in by the fourth industrial revolution, in production sites and warehouses, are getting more and more common all around the globe to further narrate the story of human development.
Autonomous mobile robots are largely more cost-efficient compared to human labor, which allows for a greatly expanded list of economically feasible services. This is because most of the currently demanded services were originally offered with the cost of human labor in mind, rather than creating an affordable robot. It is also important that a single operator can manage multiple robots at the same time. Thanks to modern communication technologies, the robots’ performance can be controlled remotely. In the near future, the service market is expected to experience drastic changes, due to the increased availability of mobile robots. Soon, the most economically attractive and advantageous use for the autonomous robots will be seen in the tailor-made tasks based in the reality of our increasingly robotized global environment and its emerging brand-new markets.
