Meili FMS is a fleet manager for mobile robots with a vendor-agnostic approach. It enables operators to collate their diverse fleet onto one platform. By using Meili FMS, our users can finally use their mobile robot fleet to its full potential by orchestrating their fleet as a collective, regardless of the robot’s application, brand, or type.
Our main mission is to eliminate interoperability pain points that have started to cast a shadow over the robotics industry. With more businesses adopting robots to carry out inventory management, material handling, and other applications, fleets are becoming more diverse.
Robot manufacturers can hardly keep up with this growing demand, which means that companies will be deploying robots from various brands — with different operating systems. This is where the problem arises.
Currently, robot manufacturers develop their own FMS, which means minimal to no correlation between systems. In other words, the robots cannot communicate amongst each other, causing delays in operations, accidents, and collisions — ultimately increasing operation costs while diminishing safety and efficiency substantially. Frightfully, this problem may cripple the whole supply chain, with business owners starting to question their decisions on expanding operations with robots — as a result, stagnating the entire mobile robot market.
There is a need for a universal third-party solution that can bridge the gap and enable seamless operation for the robots to function collectively rather than individually. At the same time, by having an overview of the whole fleet, robot management becomes much more effective. And that’s where we come in, with several important features: automated traffic control, smart task allocation algorithms, operator analytics, and unified mapping.
With Meili FMS’s automated traffic control feature, robots in the same environment will operate in a safer and more organised manner — not only between individual robots but also between them and human-operated vehicles.
Too often do robots navigate the facilities without a payload as the current solutions do not facilitate task queuing effectively, therefore wasting energy by needless travel or lengthy idle time. Using smart tasking algorithms, Meili FMS can help improve companies’ sustainability records as the robot fleets will no longer operate without a payload and wasting any energy.
Furthermore, our pricing plans are very accessible to early-stage or small businesses. This will definitely lower the entry barriers, allowing businesses of any size to start investing in robots and automation, which facilitates the growth of the robotics industry.
