The Neobotix PlatformPilot is an all-in-one solution for the realization of your automation requirements. As the pilot of the robot platform, it turns mobile robots into Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR) and steers them safely and quickly to their destination. To that end, it combines the smart control of actuators with the processing of sensor data and provides navigation and localization for many transport systems. It provides many additional modules to automate complex processes for day-to-day industrial use.
With PlatformPilot, both end users and integrators of automation applications in the field of intralogistics can leverage the full capabilities of their hardware, as well as researchers can integrate and test individual approaches. Together with (Neobotix) robot platforms, for example, material can be picked up and automatically transported or integrated robot arms can be brought into position. The PlatformPilot-GUI is optimized for commissioning engineers and machine setters and allows the steps required for setup to be carried out in a structured manner and in a short time.
The special feature is the modular design. PlatformPilot can control and evaluate many different kinematics, drive systems and sensors. All modules together result in a holistic system for control and navigation. It is easy to replace or improve individual modules without endangering or fundamentally changing the overall system.
The well-proven concept of Neobotix Roadmaps makes it easier to switch from previous systems. Classic lane-guided automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are often inflexible in route management. Lane restructuring can only be managed with cost-intensive changes in the environment.
In Neobotix PlatformPilot, this process is virtualized, which means that the lanes can be dynamically created and edited in a graphical interface as paths based on an environment map. In addition, properties can be set for each path segment to customize the driving behavior in detail. In this way, speed limits, avoidance boundaries, angles or additional actions can be defined. The driving behavior is thus always predictable and reproducible - essential for reliable operation times.
