Mobile Industrial Robotics announces opening of US office

April 28, 2016 – Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR) announced that it has opened a US office. The emerging mobile robot industry is expected to achieve total sales of 14,500 units and revenue of $20 billion over the next three years according to the International Federation of Robotics.

Traditionally, logistics robots demanded that the surroundings be remodeled to accommodate in-floor tracking systems for the robots. But, MiR100 is designed to be highly adaptable, finding its way around obstacles and changes in the environment.

MiR100 is an autonomous mobile robot for small-task indoor transportation of items in the manufacturing and healthcare markets. Programming and operation happen through an intuitive interface accessible via a smartphone and tablet app (iOS and Android) or PC application. The robot can either “identify” its drive area and surroundings or import 3D drawings of the building layout. Built-in sensors and cameras enable the MiR to be used for safe collaborative operation in an environment with people as it automatically stops and routes around obstacles. MiR100 has a carrying capacity of 220 pounds and can tow approximately 660 pounds.
