MRPs and ASPs
Based on a recent ABI Research report (AN-4946), Autonomy Solution Providers (ASPs) are beginning to compete extensively in the mobile robot space, adding vendor-independent technology stacks for navigation, perception, motion control, and general mobility to the mobile robotics market. Facing them are Mobile Robot Providers (MRPs) like Fetch Robotics, Waypoint, and more traditional vendors who are focusing on integrated robotic platforms as opposed to retrofitting forklifts, Tuggers, industrial floor cleaners, et al.
As the state of the robotics industry has progressed, the availability of autonomous software for mobile robotic platforms has increased. During this time, the primary benchmark for autonomy on ROS robots has been the standard GMapping package, documented on the ROS Wiki, which is a wrapper for GMapping from OpenSLAM. GMapping has one of the ...
