Mir autonomous mobile robot released AMR deployment safety guidelines

Shanghai, China January 6, 2020 mobile industri, Denmark's fastest-growing robot manufacturer and global market leader of mobile robots. These values can include: uncertainty of measurement results, detection limit, method selectivity, linearity, repeatability limit, reproducibility limit Robustness against external influences and interaction sensitivity against matrix interference from samples al robots (hereinafter referred to as MIR) recently released the white paper "Safety Guide for mobile robot deployment", which provides forward-looking guidance and suggestions for the safe use of autonomous mobile robots in multiple fields, which also indicates that a new era that can truly ensure human-computer safety cooperation is coming

modern industrial manufacturing is changing to automation and intelligence, which puts forward higher requirements for the production efficiency and automation level of the production line. A more flexible and efficient internal logistics scheme has become one of the urgent needs of the market. Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR) have made outstanding contributions to promoting positive changes in internal logistics and transportation. According to the prediction of the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), the number of autonomous mobile robots put into use worldwide is expected to increase to 700000 by 2022, creating value for manufacturing, e-commerce, hospitals and other fields

as the world's first autonomous mobile robot manufacturer, Mir autonomous mobile robot believes that AMR has a promising future, but it is worth noting that providing flexible and intelligent automated internal logistics solutions must follow an important premise of safety, which is the starting point, starting point and fundamental focus of AMR development

amr is a cooperative mobile robot, which requires it to work with people, forklifts and other means of transportation in a complex working environment. As a result, there will be countless possible internal logistics transportation solutions, and the difficulty of cooperation between equipment will increase. Only strong security can ensure the smooth operation of the whole cooperation process and improve production efficiency. The white paper "Safety Guide for mobile robot deployment" released by Mir is to understand that safety has become unprecedented important for mobile robots. It is expected that all AMR manufacturers, integrators and users in the AMR deployment ecosystem will gather together and reach a consensus on safe operation, so as to solve people's confusion about installing Mobile robots due to the increasingly booming and rapidly changing AMR market demand, Emil Hauch Jensen, vice president of sales of Mir autonomous mobile robots in China, said

the white paper points out that the safety of autonomous mobile robots mainly involves two dimensions: the characteristics of robots that realize autonomous and safe navigation for daily operations, and the safety functions integrated within robots, so as to ensure that robots can always ensure safety even if major systems fail

the deployment of AMR should focus on safety. Following the local safety standards and legal provisions, the design standards of AMR can make it operate safely in the crowd, and the safety standards formulated during the deployment of AMR are designed to ensure that machines and robots will not put people in danger when working. First, it is important to distinguish the different components of AMR, that is, a single AMR, an AMR system, and other peripherals in its operating environment

in addition, it is also necessary to understand the applicable standards, laws and instructions of mobile robots to ensure the establishment of a safe AMR system. At present, the global industry has issued some industry standards for automatic guided vehicles, industrial trucks and other equipment systems, among which the most applicable standard for AMR is en 1525:1997 (safety of industrial trucks, driverless trucks and their systems). This European standard fills the gap in the field of mobile robot safety implementation. However, since the current standards do not consider autonomous navigation, the more targeted en 1525 successor standard iso/fdis: "driverless industrial truck and its system" has made the whole industry look forward to it. It is planned to be released in January of 99620, when the safety problems of internal logistics and the risks related to recalculating the dynamic path will be avoided more effectively. However, the development of AMR in China, especially the definition and specification of security issues, is still immature and still highly dependent on AGV industry standards. In general, the security deployment of domestic AMR products is still a long way to go

like industry standards, the laws related to worker safety and machines vary greatly from place to place, said Andre kosonov, general manager of A. A. C. polymers. Throughout the world, the European standard EN 1525:1997 and CE mark provide a good security framework for AMR and its system, and provide a reference for promoting the implementation of AMR system security in all regions. In fact, safety standards and laws depend on specific countries or regions, so mobile robot manufacturers, buyers and integrators must comply with local standards when deploying AMR

standards organizations around the world are preparing new standards related to safe operation for AMR. Mir always strives to achieve the highest level of safety, and works closely with relevant organizations on the construction of new standards, providing customers and integrators with the latest information in a timely manner, and ensuring that robots meet current and future industry requirements

amr manufacturers, AMR integrators and users should perform their respective duties in practical safety applications.

mir believes that the safety deployment of autonomous mobile robots cannot be separated from the joint cooperation and collaboration of AMR manufacturers, AMR integrators and users. It is necessary to clarify the functions of all parties to realize the safety process of AMR from commissioning, installation to actual operation

amr manufacturers are mainly responsible for the commissioning, technical training and guidance in the installation stage, as well as the product design and quality assurance certificate of AMR. After entering the installation stage, the AMR system integrator (if the user chooses to integrate the robot by himself, it may be the end user) is responsible for installation, providing sufficient operation information, identifying or solving all risks, and predicting potential hidden dangers; The robot is programmed to comply with safety standards and the AMR system is risk assessed during installation. After deploying the AMR system, the end user will be responsible for formulating and following the operation and maintenance procedures of the AMR system. End users should standardize safe operation procedures and provide safe operation training to operators, other staff and visitors

it is imperative to strengthen the implementation of AMR security deployment in the Chinese market

at present, the discussion on AMR security deployment standards in the Chinese market is still in a relatively preliminary stage. Since entering China in 2017, Mir has been committed to promoting the safe deployment of autonomous mobile robots, and has actively cooperated with AMR manufacturers, AMR integrators and users to build a trinity application ecosystem. At present, Mir has achieved certain results, and the future is expected

mir is full of confidence in the security deployment of AMR, not only because of its unique innate endowment, but also because of its innovative efforts in pursuing a higher level of security

mir robot design meets the world's most stringent safety standards. In addition to being an AMR robot, it needs to meet the four mandatory functional requirements of emergency stop, area switching, personnel detection and overspeed detection. Mir500 and mir1000 include five safety functions: Area shielding, safety limiting speed, safety protection parking, mobility and system emergency parking. Mir robot will actively use these functions in daily operation to ensure that even if the main safety functions fail, Robots can also react to ensure safety

in order to enable the robot to safely retreat when encountering obstacles, or detect people approaching from the back or side, and stop or adjust the route when necessary, all Mir machines are equipped with dual laser scanners with 360 degree field of view. The latest and most advanced laser scanning technology of sick MICROSCAN 3 is used to help the robot not be affected by light and dust, and its scanning accuracy is 10 times that of other types of laser scanners. In addition, in order to ensure the safe and smooth daily operation of the Mir mobile robot, the double 3D camera installed in the front of the robot can help the robot detect obstacles 700mm high. With the help of a horizontal angle of view of 120, the obstacles can be seen at a glance, so that it can move safely around the workbench, and can also avoid obstacles such as wall mounted cabinets or shelves

for mobile robots with large loads, such as mir500 and mir1000 robots, Mir is equipped with 24 proximity sensors, which are installed in all corners of the robot and point to the ground. These sensors specially detect the feet and trays below the field of view of the laser scanner, providing a protective shield for personnel engaged in heavy internal transportation operations to prevent possible injuries such as foot crushing, which once again proves the technological progressiveness embodied in the design process of Mir, which is a model of man-machine cooperation AMR

in addition, the Mir robot is also equipped with other diversified sensor inputs (including accelerometers and gyroscopes) for sensing inertial force, acceleration and rotation, which can react according to different situations to ensure the safe movement of the robot on the driving route

mir robot's easy-to-use and programming features also feed back to its safety. It is easy to program the robot through personal computer, smart or tablet computer to optimize safety, mark the forbidden area on the map, define the preferred path or limit the speed of the robot in the busy traffic area, etc

mir knows that no matter how the industry changes, safety is always the foundation of AMR development. Since 2017, Mir has been making plans in China, working with AMR integrators, users and other parties to deepen the consensus on the safe deployment of autonomous mobile robots, promote close dialogue and cooperation in the industry, and serve the diversified internal logistics application scenarios of the medical department, so that patients can get more peace of mind, so as to help the automation process of China's manufacturing industry to a new level

mir hopes that by participating in and promoting the formulation of industry standards, the whole industry can achieve win-win prosperity in a safer, standardized, orderly and efficient environment.
