Video: How lidar is used in industrial robotics

02 September 2021

Demand for automation in the industrial space is leading to the need for more sophisticated industrial robots.

That’s why Mov.Ai is collaborating with Velodyne Lidar to provide robot manufacturers with lidar solutions to include mapping, navigation, obstacle avoidance and risk avoidance.

The Mov.Ai robotics platform combined with Velodyne’s lidar sensors allow autonomous mobile robot manufacturers and integrators to address the challenges of safely moving in changing and unstructured environments such as material handling and warehouse logistics.

The platform can help develop and deploy robots that can operate in industrial workplaces alongside humans, manual machines and robots. The Puck lidar from Velodyne allows mobile robots to traverse outside controlled situations and function in unfamiliar or unpredictable settings. The Puck lidar is a small sensor that can be easily embedded into robots.

The robotics platform includes a visual integrated development environment, off-the-shelf algorithms and integrations, fleet management, flexible interfaces with warehouse environments such as ERP and WMS and cybersecurity compliance
