Seegrid named in the 2022 Gartner® Market Guide for Intralogistics Smart Robotics
Autonomous mobile robot provider is recognized for solutions that address supply chain pressures, labor challenges, and rising costs
Seegrid Corporation, a provider of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) for material handling, has announced that it has been identified as a Representative Vendor in Gartner “Market Guide for Intralogistics Smart Robotics” research report. Gartner, a company that delivers actionable, objective insight to executives and their teams, describes intralogistics smart robotics (ISRs) as a special class of flexible, intelligent, and often mobile intralogistics systems and cyber-physical systems that leverage embedded sensors and AI technologies to sense their surroundings, operate and complete tasks, and communicate with intelligent software.
Seegrid was profiled in the transport AMRs category which is defined as specialized vehicles that efficiently and flexibly automate tasks within warehouses and plants. The purpose of the Gartner report is to inform automation decision-makers of the key capabilities and attributes of advanced ISRs, as well as considerations for selection. Gartner reports significant growing interest in flexible automation and the adoption of intelligent mobile robots within the warehouse, distribution, and manufacturing environments.
“Many factors are driving demand for greater automation, including consumer and competitive pressures, growing labor constraints, and rising costs,” wrote Dwight Klappich, a Gartner Vice President Analyst. “By 2026, we expect the majority of large enterprises in product-centric businesses will have adopted smart robots in their warehouse operations.”
“We believe that being included in the Gartner Market Guide as a Representative Vendor is reflective of how Seegrid AMRs reliably perform in complex industrial environments with human-like agility, intelligence, and flexibility,” said Jim Rock, Chief Executive Officer of Seegrid. “It reinforces that our mobile automation solutions are valued by top global brands across the supply chain.”
Seegrid recently received Frost & Sullivan’s Technology Innovation Award, was named the #4 most innovative robotics company in the world by Fast Company, and earned recognition as the #1 AMR provider in the US and #1 market leader in tow tractor AMRs worldwide by Interact Analysis, an international market research authority for the supply chain automation industry.
