ProMat / Automate Mobile Robot Show Guide
Are you going to ProMat / Automate next week? We’ve done all of the homework for you and built the definitive list of mobile robot vendors to visit while you’re at the show AND we’ll be live blogging from the show all week with the latest news.
It’s going to be a record setting event next week at the 2019 Automate and ProMat shows in Chicago with over 35 companies displaying some form of mobile robotics in their booths. The mobile robot market is exploding, and this will be your best chance to see live demonstrations of the latest technology.
At ProMat 2019 you'll have the opportunity to see a variety of autonomous mobile solutions: everything from AGV's to autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) to the latest autonomous fork truck solutions. The core technology embedded in these vehicles have made them smarter and more powerful than ever before. As collaborative robots, most of the systems are safe to operate around humans (note: there are are still some solutions which are designed to operate in in enclosed spaces while moving shelving to human pack out stations). Unlike AGV's, which are restricted to pre-defined operational lanes in the factory or warehouse, AMR's can operate safely in aisle-ways crowded with humans, fork-trucks, tuggers and other AMR's.
So put on your walking shoes, zero your pedometer and get ready to hustle through the aisles at the two largest, co-located shows for industrial automation and material handling in North America.
Are you in the market for a mobile robot solution?
In addition, our founder and editor, Mike Oitzman, will be presenting a session on “How to select a mobile robot”, Wednesday, April 10, 2019 at 11 AM (CT). If you’re in the market for a mobile robot, this is one of the must see sessions at the show. Mike will be on stage along with Ash Sharma of Interact Analysis. Ash will be presenting his latest research on the mobile robot market. Mike will outline how to prioritize your needs for mobile material handling and build a credible selection process as you shop for the right mobile robotics solution partner.
There are a bunch of other great presentations happening with a some of the leading industry experts. Check the official AUTOMATE 2019 CONFERENCE GUIDE for room information.
