MiR 500 Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) – 2018
Specifications (subject to buyer verification):
MiR500 is an autonomous mobile robot that can transport loads up to 500 kg indoors within
production facilities, warehouses, and other industrial locations where access to the public is
Users operate MiR500 via a web-based user interface, which is accessed through a browser
on a PC, smartphone, or tablet. Each robot has its own network—see Connecting to the robot
interface on page 47. The robot can be set up to run a fixed route, be called on demand, or
perform more complex missions.
The robot interface of MiR500 can be accessed via Google Chrome, Google Chromium,
Apple Safari, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Edge browsers.
The robot uses a map of its work area to navigate and can move to any position on the
map—see Navigation and control system on page 60. The map can be created or imported
the first time the robot is used. While operating, the robot avoids obstacles that are not
mapped, like people and furniture
Designated use For internal transportation of heavy loads and pallets within the industry and logistics
