What is AGILOX X-SWARM Technology? And what unbeatable advantages result directly from it?

Automation, Efficiency increase

Our innovative AGILOX AMRs - Autonomous Mobile Robots - have swarm intelligence.
What this means and what significant advantages are associated with it, you will learn in the following.

At this point, a brief note before we go into further detail regarding swarm technology: To give you a complete overview, 
+ which unique selling points also distinguish AGILOX, 
+ why AGILOX is the right choice for you, 
+ how you can benefit from higher safety standards and continuously optimized processes, and 
+ what our existing customers say about us based on their direct operational experience, 

We have compiled a free factsheet for you, which is available here and from which you can access - also free of charge - in-depth articles such as this one on each of the topics summarized there.


Swarm Intelligence

The study of swarms originated in behavioral biology. The research focused on how swarms of birds or fish, for example, are capable of seemingly intelligent reaction patterns without the individuals themselves possessing the corresponding intelligence.
This ability of a collective to behave collaboratively and sensibly, which was eventually termed "swarm intelligence", was subsequently adopted by many areas and technologically emulated.
This is also the case for the use of autonomously acting transport systems, as we at AGILOX have done.
The fact that we have made the "ability to swarm intelligence" directly practical and usable is certainly one of the most innovative and outstanding development achievements of our company.

X -SWARM Technology

Thanks to what we call "X-SWARM Technology", our AMRs are particularly well suited to scaled fleet operation and parallel use with other people-controlled vehicles and people, and score points with incomparable potential.

Networked technology

AGILOX AMRs communicate with and among each other during fleet operations, check current workloads and intelligently distribute jobs among themselves.
In addition, they transmit information to each other in real-time about detected obstacles, which can be cleverly avoided or, in the case of a newly calculated route, bypassed.

This is also a decisive advantage in the event of changes to production lines or warehouse structures and enables an AMR that returns after a few minutes of loading time to immediately reintegrate itself into the ongoing processes.

In this way, AGILOX AMRs ensure maximum flexibility in every respect amid dynamic processes and market demands.

Safety technology

Based on its comprehensive sensory safety technology, AGILOX AMRs make a significant contribution to accident-free processes. With foresight, it monitors all its transport routes and brakes in the event of an obstacle and bypasses it or calculates a new route to the destination in coordination with all other AGVs.

Plug & Play

Another outstanding feature is the minimization of the time required for commissioning and integration.
For example, it is sufficient to manually navigate a single AGILOX AMR - for example via smartphone - through the warehouse or production hall on site, while it independently records the spatial structure using a 2D laser scanner to create a virtual map.
After that, it is sufficient to assign its task processes.
All other AMRs of a fleet then receive a "mirroring" of its records.
In this way, the first vehicle can be integrated into the environment and put into operation in less than 12 hours(!) and each additional vehicle in less than 20 minutes(!).

From a single source

AGILOX stands for autonomous transport solutions whose entire range of components, from the production and development of the software and human-machine interface to the mechanics, safety, and drive technology, comes from a single source.
This ensures perfect interaction of all components and guarantees easy handling with full flexibility and the lowest acquisition and operating costs.
