Mobile robots get their configuration data from the Enterprise Manager appliance, which helps optimize traffic flow by sharing each robot’s position and trajectory with others in its vicinity. This allows each robot to make path adjustments to avoid potential conflicts. Enterprise Manager also saves manufacturers significant amounts of time in uploading configuration data and ensures that updates are less prone to error. Enterprise Manager enables operators to manage map and configuration updates from a central communication point so that they can be pushed out to each mobile robot in the fleet. The system also provides a queuing manager to receive job requests from call buttons and automation equipment, and dispatch jobs to the robots in the fleet. Robots can work within close range of one another without colliding thanks to the system’s knowledge of the location and path of each vehicle.
