As the global middle-class consumer group continues to expand, the requirements for product quality have become higher and higher, and customization has become a new trend. Therefore, the current manufacturing industry is facing the challenge of diversified and personalized needs, and the production mode based on flexible technology has become a mega trend. Especially in the 3C industry, frequent product upgrades require flexible production lines that can be adjusted at any time. Modular production lines and freely combined operations are basic conditions. For example, the more common unmanned transport vehicle (AGV) applications are efficient and flexible The advantages of low energy consumption have been widely used in flexible manufacturing. The use of AGV robots has great advantages both for enterprises and for future development.
Thanks to more and more landing applications in the logistics industry, factory production lines and service areas, the mobile robot industry is in a vast blue ocean and is likely to become the next outlet. Facing the emerging 100 billion-level market, a large number of industry pioneers and industry innovators have begun to shine. For example, the core technical team comes from Stander Robotics, a top robotics university, and is also a representative of mainstream mobile robot manufacturers. The natural navigation Oasis series of backpack-type robots and forklift robot products developed by Stander Robotics have been adopted by Huawei, ZTE, Foxconn, GoerTek and other large electronics industry customers.
The flexible production mode can quickly change the production process of the product with minimal human intervention, and has created a demand for a series of new technologies. Such as the Internet of Things technology, 5G network applications. As a key supporting technology for connecting people, machines and equipment, the Internet of Things is entering a period of rapid development. 5G technology further helps manufacturing companies to get rid of the chaotic application state of wireless network technology in the past, and has positive significance for promoting the implementation of the Industrial Internet and the deepening transformation of intelligent manufacturing.
In the vision of the development of Industry 4.0, in the future, AGV unmanned robots will not only simply move goods to a designated location, but will also integrate big data, the Internet of Things, cloud computing, etc. into the design of the product, and let AGV robots It has become a new type of intelligent industrial equipment with real-time sensing, safety identification, multiple obstacle avoidance, intelligent decision-making, and automatic execution. At present, AGV handling robots have been applied in various fields, and it is an inevitable trend to replace manual handling.
Imagine the future. In the whole process, there is no need for manual participation. AGV runs around the clock, which can greatly reduce labor costs. According to the edited route and vehicle management plan, different AGVs can coordinate and cooperate to the greatest extent, and maximize the efficiency and quality of work in a limited time and space.
In addition, in the flexible manufacturing workshop, safety is the first priority; for traditional handling, any small mistakes in the handling process may cause personal injury to the handling personnel. In the design, Stander fully considered the safety during transportation. Stander's Oasis series mobile robots adopt multiple guarantees in terms of safety. AGV can not only operate normally in an unsupervised state, but also can be equipped with lidar and depth camera. Waiting for sensors, intelligent detection and identification of obstacles, active stop and obstacle avoidance, effectively reduce personnel injuries to a minimum.
With the development and application of the Industrial Internet of Things, the network will be closely linked with the physical system, that is, the Internet of Things will connect processors and sensors at the production site, so that robots can communicate with each other, and machines and Human work will no longer be strictly divided. In the future, manufacturing systems will integrate people and machines.
One of the cores of the organization and implementation of industrial production is logistics: industrial logistics must be divided into two parts. One is the changes in production to achieve industrial 4.0. To achieve a high degree of automation and information, high automation is based on The execution of system data is highly networked, that is, the transfer of data. Therefore, industrial enterprises need to make a series of investments if they want to rise to the level of industry 4.0, and this investment has a sequence. Relatively speaking, industrial equipment and network systems are invested heavily, and the enterprise needs to perform overall data modeling before investing in these systems. Analyze the market and establish the direction of development based on the company's own situation before the next step. Based on the current survival status and technical level of domestic enterprises, Stander conducted in-depth analysis and developed a set of data and execution systems based on the AGV logistics system.
The second is traditional transportation and storage. That is, the AGV's in-and-out of the factory's internal raw materials warehouse, stocking warehouse, and finished goods warehouse include handling and stacking, as well as the distribution of production line materials and the transfer of work in progress. Stander also realizes intelligent and flexible industrial logistics through independent research and development of the Oasis series of flexible mobile platforms (AGV) and FMS intelligent dispatching system. The biggest feature of its FMS intelligent dispatching system is that it can set "traffic rules", realize multi-machine cooperation of AGV robots, "fast trains", "wind riders" and "special cars" frequently and quickly respond to the robot's global status. The second is resource optimization, combined with production and transportation requirements, automatically assigning the optimal robot to perform tasks, work efficiently with production logistics equipment, and effectively manage automatic charging requirements. It not only meets the requirements of efficient transportation, but also achieves the purpose of collaboration.
As the pace of 5G commercial implementation accelerates, smart factories are being vigorously developed as an important scenario of 5G technology. 5G networks will seamlessly connect production equipment to meet the needs of equipment interconnection and remote interactive applications in industrial environments. The continuous coverage of the mobile robot will make the mobile robot's active area unrestricted during the movement, reach various locations as needed, and perform uninterrupted work and smooth switching of work content in various scenarios. Mobile robot landing
Core technologies such as environmental awareness, autonomous navigation, decision-making and planning, and natural human-computer interaction based on the new round of IoT technology are making significant progress in mobile robots. The cross-border integration of IoT technology is continuously deepening, and the industrial ecology is accelerating. The pursuit of high-security, low-cost and mass-production industry landing practices continues to expand, and mobile robots will eventually move to a higher level.
At the time when the entire industry is about to usher in a burst of momentum, in order to seize the opportunity in the market, in addition to having core technical barriers, it should also have two capabilities. One is to have complete product capabilities, that is, the robots produced must be stable and available. The second is the ability to understand industry segments.
As a major 3C industry country, China has 70% of its global 3C production capacity concentrated here. Compared with foreign competitors, domestic mobile robot companies have an innate advantage in non-standard construction in the early stage. Steinder Robotics is based on the profoundness of specific domestic industrial scenarios. Understand that its Oasis series of mobile robots and solutions have been adopted by industry leaders such as Foxconn and Huawei.
Stander robot adopts the third-generation natural trackless navigation of laser + vision, and generates high-resolution maps based on its own algorithm, enabling its products to acquire the ability of autonomous movement, path planning, and scene understanding, avoiding the problem of error accumulation, and the accuracy of positioning. It reaches the level of ± 10mm, which has reached the industry-leading level and can fully meet most industrial-grade application scenarios.
As the core sensor localization speed exceeds expectations, the decline in the cost and price of mobile robots is also an inevitable trend. At present, the industry does not have a monopoly situation with foreign robot giants. The domestic brand market share is close to 90%. Competition from similar companies has intensified. Differentiation has become an inevitable road. In the face of the industry's gradual segmentation, AGV special devices and even mechanical accessories Standardization, serialization, generalization, software, and electrical interface standardization are necessary.
With the arrival of 5G, driven by its three major characteristics: low latency, high bandwidth, and high speed, high-speed boosters will be installed for the development of the Internet of Everything; the application scope of AGV will continue to expand, and the environment that AGV needs to face It is also becoming more diversified, and the requirements for AGV technology are getting higher and higher. The development direction of higher-level technology in the future should be big data (+ Internet) to make AGV truly informative and intelligent. In the early stage, it can quickly reorganize new production units to adapt to process changes; secondly, to obtain greater flexibility in the application and implementation of AGV on the premise of industrial-grade stability and accuracy; and to work with humans and machines in the same place with humans.
