AGV/AMR connectivity solution

Meshmerize delivers a purpose-built mesh networking software designed for seamless and reliable connecivity in dynamic industrial environments with AGVs and AMRs.

Fast-track to reliable Industry 4.0 connectivity

Navigating traditional Connectivity Hurdles

Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) and Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) struggle with connectivity in dynamic industrial environments, as standard enterprise WiFi networks are optimized for throughput rather than the essential reliability and low latency needed in these settings.

 

Key challenges in conventional WiFi

  • Roaming handover time between APs spans from 500ms to 20s.

  • Physical obstacles cause coverage dead zones.

  • Traditional AP positioning fails in dynamic environments.

  • Network expansion requires extensive cabling and time.

Answering Industry 4.0 requirements

Meshmerize is built with the needs of industrial robots in mind, such as low latency and high resilience. It’s a plug-and-play software solution that can be installed on a wide array of off-the-shelf network hardware.

The Meshmerize edge for AGVs and AMRs:

  • Near-zero handover time between the APs, ensuring seamless roaming.

  • Adapts to environmental interferences, mitigating radio shadows.

  • Effortless wireless network expansion by simply adding more devices.

  • Easy scalability with the fleet growth and operational needs.

  • Multipath routing and smart redundancy to eliminate single point of failure.
