Vecow ECX-1000 series workstation-grade Fanless System and MOV.AI Robotics Engine Platform™ are trusted solution for a faster time-to-market.

[New Taipei City, Taiwan, and Tel Aviv, Israel – January 12th, 2022] – Vecow Co., Ltd., a team of global embedded experts, and MOV.AI who is revolutionizing Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR) development, today announced they are collaborating to provide an integrated AMR solution containing the Vecow ECX-1000 Series Workstation-grade Fanless System and MOV.AI Robotics Engine Platform™. The demand for AMRs is growing rapidly – Interact Analysis predicts that 2.1 million mobile robots will be shipped by the end of 2025 including 860,000 in that year alone. AMRs are expected to perform a growing number of mission-critical tasks in dynamic industrial and logistics environments. The strategic technology partnership aims to help AMR manufacturers with an integrated computing and software platform that speeds up AMR development and deployment.

Powered by Intel Core i7 processor running with workstation-grade chipset, Vecow ECX-1000 provides outstanding system performance, always-on 5G/WiFi/4G/LTE/BT mobile availability, smart system manageability, smart power protection features optimized for autonomous operation. The MOV.AI ROS-based Robotics Engine Platform™ provides AMR manufacturers and automation integrators everything needed to easily develop enterprise grade robots. It includes a ROS-based IDE, off-the-shelf autonomous navigation algorithms, deployment tools, and operational tools such as fleet management, flexible interfaces with warehouse environments such as ERP and WMS, cyber-security, and APIs.

Vecow ECX-1000 is embedded with VHub ROS, a turnkey solution which covers AI computing systems, perception SDKs and software platform, and all-in-one integrated functions with versatile platform offerings to accelerate the requirements of AMR applications. With this collaboration, the MOV.AI Robotics Engine Platform is included in the VHub ROS solution and serves as a premium version of VHub ROS for AMR manufacturers.

“We are so glad for this win-win partnership with MOV.AI,” said Thomas Su, Vice President of Vecow. “Vecow ECX-1000 Series Fanless Workstation running with the MOV.AI Robotics Engine Platform™ delivers an enterprise-grade, easy to build, deploy and operate AMR solution to benefit not only our global partners but also Vecow and MOV.AI a competitive advantages and faster time-to-market.”
