Natural feature navigation for your automated guided vehicle (AGV), automated forklift or mobile robot.
ANT® navigation technology is an accurate, robust and flexible solution that meets the evolving needs of vehicle producers and operators. Based on 20 years of industry experience, ANT® is simple to use and cost-effective to install and modify.
ANT® lite+ is a vehicle control and positioning system for AGVs, automated forklifts and mobile robots. this complete natural feature navigation solution calculates the vehicle’s position (localization), controls its motion, and can interface directly with the vehicle’s safety laser scanners. when combined with ANT® server software, ant® lite+ also offers mission and fleet management, including traffic control.
ANT® localization+ is a positioning system for the upgrading of line following AGVs. It enables a vehicle to follow a virtual line using natural feature navigation, effectively replacing the antenna used to follow physical lines such as magnetic tape, inductive wire, tags etc.
ANT® localization is a vehicle positioning system for automated guided vehicles (AGVs), automated forklifts and mobile robots. It can also be used to track manual vehicles. ANT® localization simply provides position coordinates to the main vehicle controller. Therefore, it suits vehicle makers who have their own control system.
ANT® lab is our proven vehicle and mission configuration software. Use it to configure and install your customers' AGVs. Then, in the future, use ANT® lab to update their installations, modifying routes and actions as required.
ANT® server is our advanced mission and fleet management software. Use it to manage and optimize your on-site operation (including AGV traffic control).
These AGVs are equipped with a specific sensor to follow a physical line on the ground (e.g. magnetic tape, inductive wire).PROS:
These vehicles are equipped with a specific sensor (e.g. a camera or code reader), which follows a route defined by tags.PROS:

The mini™ UVC safely and autonomously disinfects any type of indoor public space, from hospitals to hotel rooms, airports and more.
Flexible enough to suit virtually any site, the mini™ UVC mobile robot can be operated 100% autonomously, semi-autonomously, or manually by a person wearing personal protective equipment.
Design and produce three prototypes of autonomous checkin’ kiosk.
BlueBotics firstly worked with SITA to clearly define the use case, then teamed up with designers to define the aesthetics and ergonomics before developing and producing the 3 Kate prototypes in an extremely short time.
Create an autonomous professional cleaning machine for airports, hospitals, hotels, and shopping centers.
BlueBotics redesigned the navigation system, developed a coverage algorithm, and automated the cleaning components together with Cleanfix to obtain a fully integrated solution.
Design a new hospital vehicle with a complete software suite to easily integrate into the hospital’s infrastructure.
BlueBotics supported Oppent in the design of the vehicle, developed a complete traffic management solution and teamed up with a strategic partner for flow and infrastructure control.
Provide innovative and user-friendly services for the passengers at the Geneva airport.
BlueBotics worked with Geneva Airport’s IT department, with their marketing department, as well as with external designers and interaction designers to develop and produce the complete solution.
