Encoders for Autonomous Mobile Robots

Whether it is AMR or autonomous mobile robots, AGC or automated guided carts, AGV or automated guided vehicles, various types of robots or robotics are increasingly important to the industry. They use these robots to move parts and materials from one place to another in every environment. For instance, goods move from manufacturing to warehouse, and thence to grocery stores to face customers. It is important that these automated machines work correctly because precision is a vital requirement. Read more [...]
