Boasting a triple safety system and award-winning drive technology, units are being deployed in the HYUNDAI TRANSYS' Alabama-based factory.

SEOUL, South Korea, May 3, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- THIRA ROBOTICS - an S. Korean autonomous mobile robots developer and a subsidiary of THiRA UTech announced their upcoming AUTOMATE exhibition with the goal of providing optimized AMR units for employees in complex facilities. THIRA ROBOTICS (TR) officially launched in the U.S. in March to overcome obstacles of current AMR and will be deploying units in HYUNDAI TRANSYS' Alabama-based automotive parts factory. Live demonstrations will be held at AUTOMATE in Detroit from May 22 - 25.

"First-generation AMR was optimized for facilities with low human traffic and smooth flooring conditions. Our second-generation robotics are real-life-ready logistics, navigating settings with highly complex human traffic, sloped floors, liquid spills, elevators, narrow hallways, and more," explains Peter Kim, CEO of TR.

Each unit in TR's product line has an AWG system that enables smooth wheel navigation over challenging floors. A triple safety system is also built into each, providing advanced visual recognition and stopping accuracy to reduce the potential for injury. Data from internal company records are never collected, protecting patrons' and employees' personal information.

"In S. Korea, we aided the National Cancer Center in overcoming labor shortages by augmenting 24/7 hospital staff services. Use cases included food delivery, medication administration, surgical materials transport, infectious waste removal, and sanitization," said Kim. "With Samsung C&T, our units helped construct a new semiconductor plant. Leveraging AMR, Samsung C&T reduced workplace injuries caused by forklift accidents and manual transportation of heavy loads. We're currently in the process of integrating our units locally in HYUNDAI TRANSYS' automotive parts factory." TR seeks to bring similar results to U.S. manufacturers, hospitals, warehouses, and construction projects.
