Vector 3D: Autonomous Mobile Robot with 3D Perception

Posted by Waypoint Robotics, Inc. (booth # S3588)

Summary of Innovation

Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) have always required a lot of time and money to setup and Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR) have only worked in sterile, controlled environments, until now...

Waypoint Robotics’ Vector 3D autonomous mobile industrial robot with 3D perception navigates in dynamic, real-world manufacturing environments. 3D perception allows Vector to detect objects of all shapes and sizes in all directions up to 100 meters away so there’s no need to worry about items left in unexpected places. We designed Vector 3D to be easy to use for the entire workforce, so you can immediately put Vector to work moving parts, materials, and tools even in the most unpredictable environments. This frees up your time to focus on more valuable tasks and manufacturing processes.

All Vector models offer unrivaled autonomous navigational capabilities, omnidirectional movement, 360 deg safety lasers, and are equipped with Waypoint Robotics’ easy to use Dispatcher software for robot setup and management. Vector’s all metal construction and its ability to drive sideways and dock next to a work cell or conveyor makes it a great tool for workers on the job today who want to get more done and go home with more energy at the end of the day.

Innovation Statement

Vector’s accessibility is its primary innovation; there’s never been a robot this easy to setup and use that also leverages the capabilities of 3D LiDAR sensors employed on self-driving cars. The 16-plane, 3D LiDAR sensor fused with Vector’s proprietary embedded system delivers unprecedented autonomous navigation performance and allows you to focus on the job. 3D perception combined with Mecanum wheels enables Vector 3D to movement in any direction, in any orientation, for an unmatched maneuverability.


Vector 3D does the boring, back breaking material handling all by itself, even in complex and changing environments, so that you can stay focused on what you’re great at.
