GMV, a multinational technology company, and ANYbotics, a leading developer of autonomous inspection robots for industrial applications, have partnered to drive innovation and enhance efficiency in automated industrial inspections. This strategic collaboration aims to revolutionize the way companies manage their inspection operations, providing improved effectiveness and optimized resource utilization in industrial environments.
Autonomous robotics has become a cornerstone solution in the industry to perform routine and complex inspections with greater efficiency. The alliance between industry leaders GMV and ANYbotics is a significant step toward the widespread adoption of robotics technology. By integrating GMV’s cloud-based autonomous robot movement solution uPathWay with ANYmal, ANYbotics’ purpose-built quadruped inspection robot, the deployment of outdoor navigation systems and real-time fleet optimization becomes achievable.
High technological sophistication and advanced innovation
ANYbotics is a pioneer in creating versatile autonomous robots capable of navigating complex industrial environments and conducting precise inspections. The robustness and adaptability of ANYmal, coupled with the ability to operate in challenging conditions, make ANYbotics ideal partners for industrial applications.
Meanwhile, GMV brings extensive expertise in control and automation systems, along with proficiency in integrating advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence and cybersecurity. The uPathWay solution integrated into quadruped robots combines precise location accuracy through the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) with dynamic routing efficiency.
The deployment of inspection robots in industry brings several benefits, including process and resource optimization. Real-time data collection and advanced analytics enable informed decision-making, facilitating predictive maintenance scheduling, cost reduction, and prolonged asset service life. These inspection robots can also autonomously navigate remote or hazardous areas, eliminating the need for human presence and significantly reducing the carbon footprint.
“At GMV, we are dedicated to delivering state-of-the-art autonomous robotics solutions that adhere to the highest quality standards. We even offer ATEX certified solutions, allowing operation in potentially explosive atmospheres. This partnership with ANYbotics represents a significant milestone in industrial automation, reaffirming our commitment to driving innovation in this field,” says Ángel C. Lázaro, head of Industrial Sector Robotics and Automation at GMV.
“ANYmal’s integration with GMV’s uPathWay fits seamlessly into ANYbotics’ strategic vision for AI-driven autonomous mobility. This integration enables ANYmal to efficiently handle complicated outdoor inspection tasks across multiple industries by leveraging the power of a cloud platform to perform multiple tasks. It gives our robots a decisive advantage in dynamic environments,” stated Enzo Wälchli, CCO of ANYbotics.
Two industry leaders in the technology sector, GMV, and ANYbotics, contribute their expertise and knowledge to drive the transformation in automated industrial inspections. They guarantee a high-level of availability, reliability, and efficiency in the process.
