OTTO Motors by Rockwell Automation will reportedly create next-generation AMRs enhanced with NVIDIA technologies.

Rockwell Automation is expanding its collaboration with NVIDIA to develop safe and smart industrial AI mobile robots. Earlier this year, the companies announced their ongoing work to increase the scale and scope of AI in manufacturing. The collaboration will now additionally involve robotics, helping drive the use of AI in autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) to improve performance and efficiency.

According to a press statement from the company, this partnership will help unlock unrealized potential in this space through the integration of the NVIDIA Isaac robotics platform.

“We’re invigorated by this continued collaboration with NVIDIA,” said Ryan Gariepy, CTO of OTTO Motors by Rockwell Automation. “Rockwell’s industrial AI expertise, combined with NVIDIA AI and robotics technologies, is going to help drive an exciting new generation of autonomous mobile robots.”

Rockwell also continues its work to integrate NVIDIA Omniverse Cloud application programming interfaces (APIs) with its Emulate3D software, aiming to bring users data interoperability, live collaboration and photo-realistic graphics rendering for designing, building and operating industrial-scale digital twins of production systems.
