In a transformative leap towards Industry 4.0, DNC Automation is at the forefront of a groundbreaking research and development collaboration with a prominent Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) and Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) technology company based in Mainland China. This strategic partnership aims to bring cutting-edge AGV and AMR technologies to address Malaysia’s evolving market needs. This article delves into the types of AGV and AMR technologies, their wide-ranging applications, and the industries set to experience revolutionary advancements. DNC, through key roles in system design, integration, setup, and software development, is poised to play a pivotal role in reshaping Malaysia’s industrial landscape.

Understanding AGV and AMR Technologies

AGV Technology:

AGVs are autonomous vehicles equipped with advanced navigation systems that enable them to move materials or products within a predefined environment. These vehicles can follow predetermined paths, making them highly efficient for material transport in various industrial settings.


AMR Technology:

AMRs, on the other hand, are autonomous robots designed to navigate and perform tasks without human intervention. They utilize sensors and advanced software to adapt to dynamic environments, making them versatile for a wide range of applications.


Types of AGV Technologies:

Tow Vehicles:

Tow AGVs are designed to efficiently transport materials or carts within a facility, following predefined paths. They are widely used for material movement in manufacturing and warehousing.

Forklift AGVs:

Forklift AGVs are robotic counterparts of traditional forklifts, equipped with forks for lifting and moving palletized loads. They autonomously navigate through predetermined routes, enhancing material handling processes.

Unit Load Carriers:

Unit load carriers are AGVs designed for transporting cases of items or pallets. They are instrumental in efficiently moving heavy loads in manufacturing facilities and warehouses.

Forklift with Conveyor AGVs:

This type of AGV combines the functionalities of a forklift and a conveyor system, enabling the transport and transfer of goods with added flexibility. They facilitate continuous material flow in manufacturing environments.

Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) AGVs:

AGVs integrated into an ASRS are specialized for automated storage and retrieval tasks. They contribute to streamlined inventory management in warehouses and distribution centers.


Types of AMR Technologies:

Goods-to-Person Robots:

Goods-to-Person Robots are AMRs designed to bring items from storage directly to human operators. They navigate autonomously, optimizing the order fulfillment process in environments such as e-commerce fulfillment centers.

Conveyor-Belt Robots:

Conveyor-belt robots are mobile robots equipped with conveyor belts for material handling. They autonomously transport goods, ensuring continuous and seamless material flow in manufacturing environments.

Goods-to-Robot Systems:

Goods-to-Robot Systems involve AMRs collaborating with robotic arms to handle and process items autonomously. They enhance efficiency in material handling tasks where precision is crucial, such as in cleanroom environments.

Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) AMRs:

AMRs integrated into an ASRS are designed for dynamic storage and retrieval tasks, adapting to changes in the environment. They streamline inventory management in dynamic warehouse settings.

Swarm Robots:

Swarm robots are AMRs that operate collaboratively in groups, exhibiting collective intelligence to accomplish complex tasks. They are utilized for collaborative tasks such as inventory counting and material sorting in large warehouses.


Applications Across Industries:


Both AGVs and AMRs find applications in manufacturing for material transport, handling, and assembly line operations. They contribute to increased efficiency and precision in production processes.

Warehousing and Logistics:

AGVs and AMRs streamline operations in warehouses and logistics by efficiently handling material movement, order fulfillment, and inventory management. They adapt to dynamic environments, enhancing overall efficiency.


The versatility of Goods-to-Person Robots and Conveyor-Belt Robots makes them ideal for e-commerce fulfillment centers, where quick and accurate order processing is essential.

Cleanroom Environments:

Goods-to-Robot Systems are well-suited for cleanroom environments, where precision and sterile conditions are crucial for handling sensitive materials.

Distribution Centers:

AGVs and AMRs play a vital role in distribution centers for optimizing material flow, enhancing order fulfillment, and ensuring seamless inventory management.

DNC’s Crucial Role:

DNC Automation’s collaboration with a leading AGV and AMR technology company positions it as a key player in bringing advanced robotics solutions to Malaysia. By actively engaging in system design, integration, setup, and software development, DNC is poised to revolutionize Malaysia’s industrial landscape. The company’s commitment to innovation aligns seamlessly with the transformative potential of AGV and AMR technologies.
