Since 2017, the NODE team (back then as part of Fraunhofer IPA) has been supporting the BMW Group in the largest automation project in the company's history with an autonomous navigation solution for the Smart Transport Robot. As of today, several hundred AMR with NODE navigation are in productive operation in various BMW plants. In close cooperation with the BMW Group and other project partners, NODE.move was optimally adapted to the requirements of automotive production and its use on the AMR.

NODE Robotics and SHERPA Mobile Robotics (SMR) have joined forces since 2023, integrating NODE's advanced localization, navigation, and fleet management modules with SMR's innovative autonomous mobile robots. This collaboration aims to redefine efficiency and user experience in mobile robotics, targeting enhanced productivity in manufacturing and logistics.

The technological forerunner of the autonomous navigation solution software NODE.move was successfully deployed in automotive production with BÄR Automation back in 2015. 23 AGVs of BÄR Automation have been running since then, with an industry-standard availability in the passenger car final assembly in double-shift operation. Since then, NODE.move has been continuously developed technologically while maintaining the availability requirements.

In October 2022 we announced our development partnership with idealworks. After the successful integration of our navigation solution NODE.move into idealworks' AMR iw.hub, both companies decided to expand their partnership in the future to jointly develop an integrated bundle of new services for idealworks' holistic robotics ecosystem.

4am Robotics - a technology leader in the field of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) and hybrid intralogistics - has been equipping its own portfolio of autonomous forklifts, tugger trains and mobile platform cobots with our Robot Autonomy Skills. With the help of our software, 4am can set up new applications in a matter of hours instead of days, while reducing the complexity of its extensive portfolio.

In the summer of 2022, we were able to win TUGBOT as a customer. TUGBOT develops a unique AMR type that can pull any kind of cart which can be used in various applications from intralogistics, manufacturing to hospitality. It thereby enriched our portfolio of supported mobile robot platforms applicable to any kinds of transport tasks.

Bottobo Robotics, a Turkish based start-up, provides collaborative AMRs that work seamlessly with human workers. Their first product, Pixer, a Person-2-Good/Piece-Picking AMR, helps organizations boost warehouse picking operations and increase productivity by up to 4x. Bottobo uses our NODE.OS software suite to easily operate their collaborative fleets in dynamic warehouse environments.

Since 2023, NODE Robotics and Ceterio have collaborated to enhance healthcare automation with the integration of NODE.OS software into Ceterio's AMRs, optimizing medication and supply delivery in hospitals. Leveraging advanced navigation technology, these robots navigate complex hospital environments efficiently, reducing human error and increasing safety. The partnership underscores a commitment to transforming healthcare logistics through innovative, precise, and adaptable robotic solutions.

BLEICHERT specializes in delivering flexible, customized, integrated solutions for automation, heavy load systems, and automatic guided vehicle systems, leveraging nearly 150 years of expertise to meet the highest industry standards. As a strategic supplier to global industrial companies, BLEICHERT provides comprehensive services from design and engineering to manufacturing and commissioning, ensuring efficient, reliable, and future-proof manufacturing processes. With the launch of the new BLEICHERT AMR, Palettino® L, BLEICHERT is utilizing NODE.OS software modules from NODE Robotics for the first time to ensure the flexibility and efficiency of the vehicle.

In this strategic partnership, NODE Robotics provides since 2024 crucial support to enhance the functionality of the Melkus G130 2.0. Leveraging NODE's advanced navigation algorithms, the G130 2.0 achieves unparalleled precision and efficiency in route planning and execution. Additionally, NODE's expertise in robotics integration enables seamless compatibility with Melkus' AGV platform, ensuring effortless deployment and integration into diverse industrial settings via VDA5050.
