Which use cases for AMR ?

Updated: Feb 14

AMRs, or autonomous mobile robots, are robots which, as their name suggests, can move and act without human intervention. To do this, they are equipped with cutting-edge technologies such as Lidar, numerous sensors, cameras and more. Thanks to cartography and localization tools, the robot the robot locates itself in space and adapts to evolutions in its environment. It's an intelligent robot with a wide range of uses and applications.

Applications AMR

Which sectors can benefit from AMR ?

AMR solutions can be adapted to a wide range of environments, and can therefore be used in all sectors, from industry to retail and the service sector.


In industry, AMRs can be used for a variety of purposes. For example, they can be used to feed production lines with the necessary components and parts. They can also be used to evacuate production lines. They also facilitate warehouse management: stock checking, item collection, ventilation, sorting, etc.

Logistics and e-commerce

In the logistics and e-commerce sectors, AMRs can perform all types of handling operations. Equipped with IoT pick or put to light modules, AMRs become smart picking solutions, helping operators during order picking (see our article on optimizing order picking).

AMRs can also be used to manage the flows of incoming and outgoing parcels.


AMRs are efficient solutions in the healthcare sector. They can transport medicines, sheets, meals, etc. within hospitals. This relieves the burden on healthcare professionals, while ensuring traceability of flows. AMRs can also be fitted with disinfection systems to secure contaminated areas. The use of AMRs ensures the safety of the men and women who work in the healthcare sector.


In the hotel sector, AMRs enhance the customer experience. For example, they can provide luggage assistance or deliver meals to rooms. During cleaning operations, they can assist housekeepers and relieve them of the burden of transporting linen and cleaning products.


In the retail sector, AMRs can detect items missing from shelves, items in the wrong place or items at the wrong price. AMRs can also be used to transport items, making it easier to prepare drive orders.

As technology continues to evolve, AMRs and robots in general will become more and more present in our daily lives, and the possible uses are quite limitless.
