Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR) is a Danish company that designs and manufactures autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) for industrial and commercial use. The company was founded in 2013 by a group of robotics experts with the goal of making it easier and more efficient for businesses to automate their internal transportation and logistics processes.
MiR’s AMRs are designed to be flexible and easily programmable, allowing them to be used for a wide range of applications, from moving raw materials and finished products around factories and warehouses to delivering items in hospitals and hotels. The robots use a combination of sensors, cameras, and software to navigate and avoid obstacles in their environment, making them safe to operate alongside human workers.
MiR has grown rapidly since its founding and is now one of the leading companies in the AMR industry. The company has a global presence with offices and distributors in more than 50 countries, and its robots are used by a wide range of companies in industries such as manufacturing, logistics, and healthcare. In 2018, MiR was acquired by Teradyne, a leading supplier of automation equipment for the electronics industry.
