Robotic Navigation Using Only the Floor for Absolute and Highly Accurate Positioning
February 17, 2021 News


A leading robotics sensor and technology supplier, MorpheusTEK, partnered with Accerion, a global leader in advanced robotic positioning to launch a mobile robot positioning system that is now propelling an advanced sector of contemporary position and guidance sensor solutions called the Triton.

Current mobile robot systems and automated guided vehicles (AGVs) require considerable integration into current facility infrastructure, bringing into question their timely installation and seemingly limited capabilities. Simply scanning and mapping the environment around them, they fall short when compared to Accerion’s completely unique, economical design as the world’s only 100% infrastructure-free positioning technology for mobile robots and AGVs.

Continually defining odds and bringing the application to a new level, Accerion’s Triton scans the existing facility floor to provide absolute positioning that is accurate at the sub-millimetre level. Fast and reliable, Triton works expertly as an applicative sensor in dynamic, ever-changing environments including entire AMR fleets for large warehouse, e-commerce and logistics operations.

“Downward looking Sonar changed sea navigation forever. Accerion’s downward looking floor vision technology will forever change robotics navigation” said Phil Hennessy, CEO of MorpheusTEK.

The Triton advanced robotic positioning system redefines the phrase “less is more”, proving that their small size, non-reliance on infrastructure and direct interface with navigation stacks do not limit, but trailblaze their ability to meet and surpass present developments. Easily adaptable and simplistically extraordinary, operators can effortlessly re-program the entire robot fleet’s route without changing existing infrastructure. All this using only the floor as their map.
