The widest selection of interoperable AGVs and AMRson the market simply acquired even wider – BlueBotics provides fleet supervisor help for VDA 5050


Autonomous navigation and AGV fleet administration chief BlueBotics – whose ANT navigation expertise drives over 5,000 AGVs and AMRs around the globe – has expanded the scope of its common ANT server mission and fleet administration software program by including compatibility with the German AGV interoperability customary VDA 5050. 

Because of this, ANT server can now handle not solely the 100+ ‘ANT pushed’ buyer AGVs and AMRs at the moment in the marketplace, but additionally VDA 5050-compliant AGVs and AMRs from non-ANT pushed manufacturers.

“With this evolution, the widest selection of interoperable AGVs and AMRs in the marketplace simply acquired even wider,” mentioned BlueBotics’ CEO, Dr. Nicola Tomatis. 

This product replace additional enhances the choices of organizations that wish to deploy or develop fleets of cellular robots.   

  • By migrating to ANT server, organizations that already function fleets of VDA 5050-compliant automobiles can now select from an excellent wider selection of automated automobiles when rising their fleets.
  • Organizations that already function fleets of ANT pushed automobiles acquire the choice of including VDA 5050 automobiles in future.

The interoperability of automated guided automobiles (AGVs) and autonomous cellular robots (AMRs) is predicted to play a vital function within the long-term adoption of those applied sciences. BlueBotics and its car maker companions are ideally positioned to facilitate this development, since over 100 ‘ANT pushed’ fashions are already natively interoperable right now when managed by ANT server.

A number of car interoperability requirements are underneath growth right now. The German VDA 5050 AGV communication interface is at the moment essentially the most superior, forward of equivalents resembling MASS within the U.S. and one other in China. 

“We’re pleased to convey this compatibility to ANT server,” Tomatis added. “Even when the performance that VDA 5050 presents right now stays beneath that of ANT server and its ecosystem of natively interoperable ‘ANT pushed’ automobiles, this evolution represents a worthwhile and essential step within the path of industry-wide multi-brand AGV operations.”

Autonomous Navigation Know-how (ANT) by BlueBotics is the market’s main pure navigation expertise for automated automobiles. Up to now, there are over 5,000 ‘ANT pushed’ AGVs in operation globally, with over 130 totally different fashions already in the marketplace and extra being launched each month.
