A programmable control system typically associated with industrial process control specifically intended for safety logic – i.e., safety interlock chain.
A routing scheme adopted from autonomous vehicles used by the Alert Alphabot software to construct efficient bot routes.
Robots as a service is an economic model where customers lease or buy subscriptions for robots use instead of buying them outright as a capital expenditure. This model is great for companies experiencing seasonal swings in volume.
A personal assistant autonomous mobile robot (PA-AMR) is a robot that assists humans with task execution; e.g., lifting, picking, packing, etc.
A cobot, or collaborative robot, is a robot intended for direct human robot interaction within a shared space, or where humans and robots work in close proximity.  The cobot and human worker normally complete tasks independently or sequentially.
If a bot fails to communicate, the software commands the bot to reinitialize to restore operation.
The definition of an Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) is a robot that travels in X and Y horizontally but not vertically and travels freely along the warehouse floor with safeguards for potentially interacting with human traffic. It is generally fitted with attachments to facilitate single, multi or batch order picking for both goods-to-person and person-to-goods picking. It moves through its environment without being supervised directly by an operator or limited to a fixed path.
Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGVs), including carts, lift trucks and purpose-built carriers that are computer-controlled wheel-based load carriers (normally battery powered) that run on a plant or warehouse floor (or, if outdoors, on a paved surface). Most AGVs follow predefined paths, although there may be areas of the plant or warehouse where they have more freedom.
A 3D robot is a mobile robot that can travel in three dimensions, the two horizontal dimensions and vertically.
A 2D shuttle is mobile robot that can travel in both horizontal dimensions, but not vertically.
