Abstract

Autonomous mobile robots operate at industrial sites in various service operations such as intra-logistics, inspection and maintenance. The robots are operated with a fleet management system that includes interfaces between robots, sensors and its operator enabling mapping, route, and mission planning and every-day use of robots. This paper provides empirical insight into a real-life multi-company case in which a new fleet management system is developed and several different mobile robots are integrated into the same system. The study presents potential multi-purpose robot concepts and benefits and challenges that relate to managing heterogeneous multi-purpose robot fleets.
