Rockwell Automation to advance intelligent AMRs

240604_RockwellRockwell Automation has announced further collaborations with NVIDIA to supercharge the development of safer and smarter industrial AI mobile robots. OTTO Motors by Rockwell Automation will create next-generation autonomous mobile robots enhanced with NVIDIA technologies.

Earlier this year, Rockwell announced its ongoing work with NVIDIA to increase the scale and scope of AI in manufacturing. The collaboration is now expanding to involve robotics, helping drive the use of AI in autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) to improve performance and efficiency. Rockwell brings AMRs and production automation applications to industrial customers who are looking for increased efficiencies in their factories. This will help unlock unrealised potential in this space via the integration of the NVIDIA Isaac robotics platform.

“We’re invigorated by this continued collaboration with NVIDIA,” said Ryan Gariepy, CTO of OTTO Motors by Rockwell Automation. “Rockwell’s industrial AI expertise, combined with NVIDIA AI and robotics technologies, is going to help drive an exciting new generation of autonomous mobile robots.”

Rockwell also continues its work to integrate NVIDIA Omniverse Cloud application programming interfaces (APIs) with its Emulate3D software, bringing users data interoperability, live collaboration, and photo-realistic graphics rendering for designing, building, and operating industrial-scale digital twins of production systems.

According to the recently released “State of Smart Manufacturing Report”, AI ranks as the top feature manufacturers believe will drive the biggest business outcomes. In fact, 83 percent of manufacturers expect to use generative AI in their operations in 2024. As part of this collaboration, the Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork now includes NVIDIA, giving Rockwell customers more applications to help make their operations more resilient, agile, and sustainable.
