Otto Motors has released a software update for its autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) designed to optimise floor space in confined manufacturing environments.

Jay Judkowitz, Otto Motors vice president, product, says manufacturers, especially in brownfield facilities, can optimise floor space by decreasing the area needed for dedicated AMR parking by up to 50%. 

Brownfield facilities, characterized by narrow aisles and limited space, often impede one-way or two-way AMR traffic flow and may not accommodate parking and charging infrastructure for larger fleets. 

With features such as parking space optimisation, Otto AMRs can now park at locations other than their designated parking spaces, reducing travel time and improving floor space utilisation.

“Last year, we introduced two new AMRs, OTTO 600 and OTTO 1200, which are some of the smallest in their payload classes,” Judkowitz says. 

“Simultaneously, our previous software release introduced a new feature that improves throughput in narrow aisles by allowing customers to create traffic zones—such as exclusion, speed limit, and single robot zones—for specific robot types. 

“In our newest software update, we’ve introduced a combination of features that empower customers to deploy and scale AMRs effectively in the tightest and most dynamic environments.”
