I’m building a perception stack for a mobile robot that operates in a warehouse. Can you provide some guidance on what I should be thinking about when selecting a computing platform?

I'm searching for a used robot distributor in North America, but having some difficulty finding sellers of models such as ABB and Kuka industrial manipulators. So far I have submitted a few Requests For Quotes, but these have mostly been responded to by European and Chinese sellers. Can you possibly tell me what avenue is recommended to receive quotes for industrial robots?

I am currently doing a market analysis of the US Market for a Locator Software Component used for localizing Mobile vehicles. I wanted to know what is the typical duration of a Sales Cycle in the US or North America? It would be great if I someone could tell me about the Sales Cycle duration of AGV/AMR manufacturers, Robotic System Integrators and Forklift Manufacturers. Thank you very much :)

Hello, I'm building a machine that will have a handle sticking out, for the user to hold. The handle will then move left to right, with the user's arm being moved with it. It will move quite fast at maybe 200 - 250mm/second and will stop an extremely short period of time after it completes the movement in one direction, before moving in the opposite. Basically, the user will be holding onto a handle that will be moving, quite quickly, left to right at about a distance of 15cm left and then 15cm right at the most and barely pausing after finishing moving in one direction, thus moving left to right quite fluidly. I also need another handle. This one will be the same, but will only have to carry at most, 1kg of weight during it's movements at 250mm/second. I'd also need these to both be programmable with an arduino, so that the distance of their movements can vary over the course of one person's one time use (might move further to the left than the right, then the opposite, then a little bit both ways before the user has removed their hand etc.). This machine will ideally be used repeatedly over a period of, maybe 10 hours daily, with only a minute's rest in between uses. As it will be being used by the public, it will also need to be as quiet as possible. I'm completely unsure of what to get for this. research tells me I may need a motorised linear slide, but it's rare that those products have their complete information available and attempting to learn about the drivers I would need to power them is extremely difficult as I have very little prior knowledge of electronics. I was hoping you could tell me the products I would need for these devices for my machine. Thank you very much.

Hello RIA, My question is, what is the average power consumption of a typical warehouse/logistics robot? I found on this site that a typical medium-sized industrial robot, with about 100-kg payload, has an average power consumption of 7.35 kW. I would assume a typical warehouse/logistics robot would be smaller and therefore have lower average power consumption. Thank you


Hello Matthew,

I can certainly help you with that question, please let me know the exact model and type of robot you're looking to purchase and I can send you pricing and information.

I have an MiR100 Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR). I would like to set up an external button aside from the emergency stop as a physical user input to be used as a variable in one of the robot's missions. How can I do this?
