Autonomous Ground Vehicles & Autonomous Mobile Robot Subsystems

In the realm of logistics and warehouse automation, Electromate plays a pivotal role with its AGV and AMR solutions. These technologies are key in reducing non-value-added expenses, especially in material transportation, marking a shift towards more efficient, cost-effective, and responsive operations.

As the market evolves, the demands for speed, positioning accuracy, and service life of AGVs and AMRs increase. Electromate meets these challenges by offering sleek yet robust designs that handle high loads efficiently without compromising on space. Our focus is on selecting the ideal motor technology, bearings, brakes, and encoders, and integrating advanced gearheads to enhance performance while remaining cost-effective.

Innovative Powered Wheel Hub Designs

A critical aspect of AGV and AMR functionality is the powered wheel hubs, available in discrete (off-wheel) and integrated (in-wheel) configurations. Electromate specializes in both, allowing for customization based on operational needs and incorporating cutting-edge frameless motor technology for seamless designs. We ensure that all factors like load capacities, wheel type, environmental conditions, and shock impact are considered for optimal solutions.

Safety and Compliance

Safety is paramount in AGV design. Electromate adheres to rigorous Safety Category 3 standards (EN ISO 13849-1), integrating Safe Torque Off (STO) functionality in AGVs to ensure motors transition to a no-torque state for safe emergency stops and to prevent unforeseen startups.

Custom Solutions and Expertise

At Electromate, we offer custom solutions to maximize wheelhub efficiency. Our team, equipped with extensive experience, provides a range of solutions from basic planetary gearhead and housed motor configurations to bespoke frameless motor designs, catering to various needs without escalating costs​.

AGV & AMR Whitepapers

Motion Controllers for Autonomous Vehicles

Robotic, unmanned vehicles and the associated technology, although advanced, remain limited by their need for a controlling, human source. The US Department of Defense sponsors the DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) Grand Challenge – one that encourages the development of autonomous ground-based vehicles. The purpose of this challenge is to ultimately find vehicles that can be used in place of manned vehicles for dangerous missions. The team whose vehicle can travel the fastest in less than 10 hours across 175 miles of treacherous roads and trails will win a $2 million prize.

Mechanical Drive Solutions by GAM for Warehouse Automation

Automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), along with automated storage and retrieval
systems, are indispensable in automating warehouses and other intralogistic movements of goods and materials. The
many types of mobile robots require many types of wheel drives. GAM has the experience and product range for all types of wheel drives. With their engineering and manufacturing flexibility, GAM can get you for the right product for your application — from our standard GML and OPG gearboxes to custom solutions for specific applications.
