The world of traditional robotics and AGV is beginning to overlap into smarter, more dynamic and more versatile robots. Artificial intelligence (AI) is advancing so robots and AGVs can better operate in a human environment, with more natural navigation and without expensive external sensing markers or reflectors. Kollmorgen’s technology is in underwater ROV’s, in drone systems delivering lifesaving materials, agricultural robots, security robots, more independent AGV and intralogistics systems, nuclear handling systems and security systems. Kollmorgen has a long history in these applications, including:
- Powered a specially designed robot, the Jason Jr., that researcher Dr. Robert Ballard used to telepresent images of the RMS Titanic on July 26, 1986.
- Deployed laser navigation for warehousing automation in Singapore in 1997, the first of its kind to gain acceptance in Asian and global markets.
