Autonomous Guided Vehicles in Manufacturing Webinar

September 24, 2020 @ 11:45 am - 12:45 pm


Autonomous Mobile Robots

To stay competitive, modern manufacturers have to streamline costs and keep their workers focused on the most important tasks. What if you could divert some of your factory’s more mundane duties, such as moving material inside a factory, to a cart that worked on its own?

This one-hour webinar is designed to give Iowa companies a broad overview of MIR autonomous vehicles. Experts will explain the basics of what autonomous vehicles can do, what their limitations are, and how they can be used to free up employees for more valuable work. We’ll discuss the machines’ technical specifications and describe how other companies have used them successfully to save time and become more efficient.

This event is sponsored by the National Institute of Standards and Technology Manufacturing Extension Partnership, Purdue MEP, The Center for Industrial Research and Service at Iowa State University (CIRAS), and the Illinois Manufacturing Excellence Center (IMEC).


Cost: FREE!  A recording of the webinar will be available for download at the IMEC Coronavirus: Update page.
