To spur the construction of intelligent factories, an increasing number of enterprises opt to replace their manual production with AMRs, and many of them have realized the fully plantwide intelligent AMR operation.
The uniqueness of each factory scenario and the difference in production line upgrading usher into a large number of non-standard requirements. To respond to complex customer requirements and reduce their own costs, numerous intelligent manufacturing integrators transfer toward the independent manufacturing of AMRs based on these purchased controllers.
So, which controller is their best choice? This has become integrators' biggest concern and largest pain. A good controller contributes to lower costs, higher customer satisfaction, better project delivery, and fewer after-sales problems.
SEER develops the SRC series core controllers, aiming to eliminate all barriers to manufacturing AMRs so that every player can make AMRs easily. Among them, the general-purpose controller SRC-2000 is the most universal one that meets nearly all requirements of integrators to manufacture AMRs.
Since its launch, SRC-2000 has helped integrators at home and abroad to manufacture over 1,000 types of AMRs, widely applied in the industries such as semiconductor, auto parts, 3C electronics, lithium battery, photovoltaic, PCB, textile, medical health, manufacturing, electric communication, component processing, and consumables, among others.
For a general-purpose controller, its full-featured nature would be the biggest consideration of customers when they assess the device. SRC-2000 is highly universal to cater to the majority of customers in the market at present.
From the initial R&D of controllers, SEER has followed the diversity principle and continuously integrated various customer requirements, including vigorously supporting integrators to make cars independently in the later stage and building a wider application ecology.
From numerous non-standard requirements, SEER has continuously extracted and refined standard functions and developed its standard product—the SRC-2000 controller—from the initial customization to the final standardization.
SRC-2000 enables basic functions such as mapping, positioning, identification, calibration, navigation and path planning, obstacle avoidance, external mechanism scripts, motion model, peripheral extension, motors, drivers, power supply, and interfaces. It works well with the SEER one-stop implementation tool—Roboshop Pro for visualized configuration and implementation, and the RDS for visualized storage location management and unified scheduling of multiple vehicles.
Each module in SRC-2000 supports multiple options so that customers can independently match modules depending on their factory environment and actual needs.
The SRC-2000 positioning and navigation module supports the reflector, natural contour, vision, QR code, 2D/3D laser SLAM, outdoor RTK positioning and navigation technologies, optional separate navigation mode, and hybrid navigation mode.
Under a technical framework, SRC-2000 is compatible with the chassis of various motion models currently available on the market, including single-steer wheel, multi-steer wheel, double-wheel differential, four-wheel differential, Mecanum wheel, double differential module, RGV2/RGV4 motion models.
SRC-2000 enables accurate recognition, intelligent capture, and handling, and supports four different recognition technologies: 2D laser, 3D point cloud, QR code, and reflector recognition. Among them, 3D point cloud identification is more intelligent for pallet recognition and status detection of the goods on pallets.
SRC-2000 is compatible with various external mechanisms, such as roller, jacking, traction, rotation, and other mechanisms, as well as the widest range of lasers, drivers, and sensors, such as SICK, Kinco, and MOTEC, among others. SEER is keeping on expanding the list of more diversified peripheral devices to meet the richer requirements of integrators for automobile manufacturing.
SRC-2000 provides APIs such as TCP/IP and Modbus and the environment for script development, allowing integrators for the secondary development of specific functions based on customers' requirements.
SRC-2000 eliminates all barriers for anyone to manufacture AMRs, freeing integrators from deployment constraints and difficulties due to non-standard requirements.
