Omron Automation Americas today announced a new software package for its mobile robots. Fleet Operations Workspace Core, or FLOW Core, is designed to improve performance and ease of use, as well as to lay the foundation for future service-focused capabilities, the company said.
FLOW Core offers a user-focused design that simplifies integration, charge management functionality that maximizes uptime, and intelligent fleet management capabilities that increase flexibility and efficiency, claimed Omron.
As an all-in-one platform, the software can boost the navigational capabilities of individual mobile robots while simplifying the management of robot fleets, according to the company.
FLOW Core built on EM2100 hardware
Omron’s Enterprise Manager EM2100 will be the new hardware platform for FLOW Core’s mobile robot fleet management functions, replacing the EM1100. EM2100 offers better performance as well as new capabilities to help customers commission systems more quickly for maximum efficiency, said Omron.
The company has also updated its MobilePlanner programming software. As the “control center” of the Mobile Robot Software Suite, MobilePlanner’s user interface includes tools for all major robot activities, including fleet observation, job assignment, and mapping.
