Mouser offers the final remaining 2022 episode of its Empowering Innovation Together programme. The new instalment dives into recent developments in autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), which have led to further enhancements and cutting-edge applications across several industries.

Although AMRs have been around since the 1990s, they have received a technological tune-up thanks to AI, computer division systems, and 5G communications. These technologically advanced robots have delivered new levels of flexibility, autonomy and usefulness in manufacturing, warehousing and logistics, maximising efficiencies.

"Through increasingly advanced technologies, AMRs add an unprecedented layer of efficiency and productivity to our factories and supply chains," says Glenn Smith, president and CEO of Mouser Electronics. "We hope the EIT audience will gain a better understanding of how AMRs can streamline operations in a safe, intelligent way."

In this latest instalment, audiences can listen to The Tech Between Us podcast, watch a new Then, Now & Next video, and read exclusive content to acquire a deeper insight into the applications and technologies that power and support AMRs, together with business use cases.

Raymond Yin, director of Technical Content at Mouser Electronics and host of The Tech Between Us, sits down with Niamh Donnelly, co-founder and CRO of Akara Robotics, for a conversation about the new generation of AMRs. The podcast is available on the company's website and all major streaming platforms.

"Raymond and I had a great discussion about AMRs and the hardware advancements and safety measures that make them a great addition to a variety of facilities," says Donnelly. "The latest designs have grown in sophistication to match the intricacies of the latest technology, creating collaborative robots that will be beneficial for years to come."
