Five Safety Considerations When Implementing Mobile Robots
March 30, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Are you getting ready to start using mobile robots in your facility … or even just curious about them in general? This webinar will give you methods as we explore differences and similarities between industrial trucks (i.e. fork lifts) and autonomous mobile robots.
We will share some of our tips and techniques to get you started with implementing autonomous mobile robots while maintaining a safe working environment.
Topics will include:
- Emergency plan (i.e. evacuation)
- Payload and stability
- Detection and stopping
- Environment (i.e. how does it know where it is at and where it is allowed to go)
- Interaction with people, other machines and other mobile devices
