While there are several sides to this, and there will most assuredly be major issues to overcome, a tectonic shift is coming.

Electric Vehicles: A deeper dive
The Department of Energy predicts an increase of 38% in electricity consumption by 2050, which will be a challenge tomeet, but the Environmental Protection Agency has recently addressed this and other “myths” commonly trotted out.

EVs + AVs = FVs (Future Vehicles): A seismic wave?
This is a game-changing transformation for transportation, with much the same impact of the jump from sail to steam power and steam to diesel propulsion.

Why Should You Deploy Autonomous Mobile Robots on the Factory Floor?
For managing material handling needs specifically, many manufacturers are deploying Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) to improve efficiency and productivity.
