Get localized – with the localization software from Bosch Rexroth.

The Locator from Bosch Rexroth is a software component for the reliable positioning and orientation of a wide range of vehicle types like automated guided vehicles (AGV) and autonomous mobile robots (AMR) in a variety of changing environments.

This is made possible by a high-performance algorithm that automatically detects and maps the natural environment using a laser sensor on the vehicle. Bosch Rexroth thus provides a robust simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) method with the localization software and resolves the challenge of localizing your mobile robots with maximum flexibility and usability.
