Movella and Advantech have partnered to develop advanced formulas that enhance the reliability and safety of autonomous mobile robots (AMR) and automated guided vehicles (AGV) applications. The collaboration combines Movella’s technique in industrial-grade Inertial Sensor Modules with Advantech’s proficiency in providing embedded guides and design-in service.

Movella’s Inertial Sensor Module, powered by Xsensis, is a top choice for applications that require high performance and reliability. Advantech’s AFE-R series is designed for AMR and AGV applications, offering specialised features, such as input/output (I/O) interfaces, power matching, integration, and anti-interference functions as a dedicated controller ensuring a stable and reliable performance.

By integrating Movella’s MTI Inertial Sensor Module into Advantech’s AFE-R series, customers can benefit from a one-stop formula that simplifies deployment, minimises compatibility issues and accelerates time-to-market.

Advantech and Movella are sampling these collaborative answers to markets worldwide, starting in the first quarter of next year, with production shipments to follow in the second quarter. The global reach ensures that customers in various regions can access the benefits of this solution and experience the enhanced reliability and safety offered by the combined expertise of these two industry leaders.

“We are excited to partner with Movella to advance technical integration for the AGV and AMR markets, delivering safer and more reliable solutions to our customers,” said Aaron Su, a vice president of Advantech Embedded-IoT Group.

“This collaboration between two industry leaders will help Advantech’s customers easily and quickly add safety and reliability to their Advantech enabled AMR and AGV solutions,” said Ben Lee, a CEO at Movella.
