MiR AI Camera is a MiR accessory that improves the workflow of MiR robots. It provides MiR Fleet with additional information that it can use to guide MiR robots more effectively. For example, it can automatically initiate missions when carts are ready to be transported and prevent robots from trying to drive through obstructed and narrow areas, such as doorways and hallways.
The camera must be connected to MiR Fleet Server Solution where you can set it up to trigger a specific action when the camera detects a certain object. The actions can either be the initialization of a fleet mission or locking a Limit-robots zone.
MiR AI Camera is a complex accessory. Its performance is affected by each step in the setup process, and any unexpected changes in the work environment that are not taken into consideration in the initial setup may result in unexpected actions. For this reason, we do not recommend using it for critical or high priority tasks and as with our other products, it is not intended to be used in medical and life critical situations, potentially explosive environments, or in hygiene zones.
Preventing obstructions in narrow doorways
In the image below, this is illustrated with two robots moving towards a doorway where there is only space for one of them to pass through. The camera detects one of the robots and locks the area marked in red. The MiR robot on the other side now waits until the first robot drives through the doorway safely before continuing on its route.
Initiating robot missions autonomously
This is illustrated in the images below. In the image to the left, the camera is not detecting any target objects, and in the image to the right, the camera has detected a box and has initiated a fleet mission to send a robot over to pick it up.
This example can be applied to carts, shelves, and pallets where the camera is focused on a cart position, shelf position, or a pallet rack.
