Lanner MOV 400x275Lanner Electronics and MOV.AI have announced a collaboration to provide developers of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) an integrated computing and software platform to help optimize performance and speed the deployment of AMRs.

With an expected $8.7 billion market for AMRs worldwide by 2028, AMR manufacturers are expected to deliver intelligent and more agile robots that can be integrated into dynamic and human-centric environments. The collaboration between MOV.AI and Lanner will leverage the Robotics Engine Platform from MOV.AI with Lanner’s Edge AI computing appliance. The AMR solution simplifies the development process by providing robot manufacturers and integrators with both the machine vision computing and software platform they need to quickly build, deploy and operate intelligent AMR solutions aimed at industrial environments.

“Lanner is pleased to partner with MOV.AI to offer the bundle solution that brings AMRs to the industrial IoT edges,” said Jeans Tseng, CTO of Lanner Electronics. “Our expertise in creating purpose-built Edge AI computers, combined with MOV.AI’s state-of-the-art Robotics Engine Platform, provides the industrial automation sector with a reliable AI-driven robotics solution that is both agile and intelligent.”

The ROS-based Robotics Engine Platform gives AMR makers and integrators navigation, localization, calibration and enterprise-grade tools for advanced automation. It includes a visual integrated development environment (IDE), off-the-shelf algorithms and integration, fleet management, flexible interfaces with warehouse environments such as ERP and WMS, and cybersecurity compliance.

Lanner’s LEC-2290E is a NVIDIA NGC-ready Edge AI appliance that includes NVIDIA GPU compatibility. It is also optimized for AI functionality, performance and ease of deployment.

"AMRs today are required to operate efficiently in highly dynamic environments, designed to work alongside and in collaboration with humans, safely and without interruption,” said Motti Kushnir, CEO of MOV.AI. “The partnership with Lanner creates a powerful compute-software platform that allows AMR manufacturers to quickly build the agile robots expected by their customers.”
