LD Series - Autonomous Mobile Robots
Self navigating Autonomous Intelligent Vehicle (AIV)
The Omron LD Mobile Robot is a self navigating Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) designed for dynamically moving material in challenging environments that may include confined passageways as well as dynamic and peopled locations. Unlike traditional autonomously guided vehicles (AGVs), Omron Mobile Robot requires no facility modifications, such as floor magnets or navigational beacons, saving users deployment costs. The LD includes Omron’s proprietary software and controls allowing it to intelligently navigate around people and unplanned obstacles, that render traditional AGVs incapacitated and it can be programmed and functional within a day. Designed for developers, integrators, and end-users the system can be customized for a variety of applications and payloads. Manufacturing, warehousing, clean tech, and laboratories are just a few environments ideal for the mobile robot.

Fully autonomous intelligent vehicles
Our mobile robots are fully autonomous intelligent vehicles that increase throughput, reduce machine dwell time, eliminate errors, improve material traceability, and allow employees to focus on tasks that require complex human skills. What’s more, unlike traditional AGVs, our mobile robots navigate by the natural features of the facility and require no expensive facility modification.
OMRON mobile robots are easy to get up and running, requiring no construction such as the installation of magnets, and minimal programming. In addition, our software integrates with your other systems so you can get the solution up and running in minimal time.
- No construction required
- Easy integration with MES, ERP, and WMS
- Enhanced security to comply with IT systems
- Autonomous navigation doesn’t require preset routes, magnets, or beacons
- Automatic software updates across fleet while maintaining continuous work flow
OMRON’s mobile solutions are extremely versatile and can be adapted to perform a wide variety of tasks and applications. With payloads ranging from 60kg to 250kg available in multiple form factors and protection ratings, LD series mobile robots are perfectly suited for most small to midrange material transport applications. We’re also scalable, so we can grow with your business.

AMR vs. AGV - The Difference is Flexibility
AGVs require a predefined path to follow, either a network of magnetic lines on the floor or beacons on the walls. So although AGVs allow modifications to production lines, facilities will need to install new equipment every time the AGV path is changed, leading to downtime and extra costs.
Unlike AGVs, which will stop at obstacles indefinitely, AMRs avoid stationary or moving obstacles and automatically reroute themselves when necessary. AMR paths automatically change without human intervention, making operations more flexible and decreasing total cost of ownership.
AMRs can safely navigate without the use of floor magnets or wall-mounted beacons. An AMR will first create a baseline map of a facility using built-in sensors, then will constantly detect its surroundings. When processes change, AMRs can easily change as well, creating networks of new routes or being reassigned to new tasks.

LD Cart Transporter
The Omron mobile robot LD Cart Transporter is an Autonomous Intelligent Vehicle (AIV) designed to attach to movable carts and transport them from a pickup location to a drop off location. Applications include line-side inventory replenishment, moving flow racks, transporting Work in Progress (WIP) between process steps, and moving finished goods to the warehouse.
The Omron mobile robot LD Cart transporter leverages Natural Feature Navigation to autonomously find a path through the facility without the need for any facility modifications necessary. The LD Cart Transporter is safe to operate in existing doors and aisle ways as it can sense and avoid people, fork trucks and other objects in its path.
ESD Mobile LD Skins
The ESD LD mobile robots maintain exceptionally high levels of protection thanks to its intuitive design that creates a protective shield around the robot that not only protects your investment, it dissipates excessive energy through the unit’s casters. Allowing in-process product handling of static sensitive devices reduces material costs while freeing human resources for other value added tasks that maximize productivity, improve operational efficiencies while decreasing the total cost of ownership.
Localization & Position
High Accuracy Positioning System
The Omron LD mobile robot excels at self-navigating throughout your facility. However, some applications require that the vehicle stops with a well-defined repeatability, especially when the vehicle payload needs to interface with conveyors, feeders or test equipment to offload or on load cargo. For these applications, the High Accuracy Positioning System (HAPS) option provides the capability to consistently move through a defined space with enhanced precision and/or precisely stop at predefined goal.
By leveraging magnetic tape affixed to the floor in front of a goal and a HAPS sensor underneath the vehicle, the LD mobile robot is able to smoothly transition onto the path defined by the tape. The robot can then sense markers placed along the path and align itself precisely at the defined stopping locations.
Unlike AGV’s which require magnetic tape to guide all of their motion, the LD mobile robot can enter and depart a magnetic tape path at any point. This unique capability enables the LD mobile robot vehicle to transition between natural feature navigation and magnetic tape guidance. The vehicle can also drive along the path accurately in both forward and reverse when configured with a dual sensor configuration. The High Accuracy Positioning System option opens up a whole new world of precision motion for the LD mobile robot product family.
Dynamic Localization (Acuity)
Acuity is an additional method of “localization” for the AIV that identifies lights (or high contrast objects) in the roof and overlays the “light map” with the “floor map”. This option also allows the AIV to move easily across wide-open areas in large warehouses.
When multiple LD mobile robots operate within an area, to achieve high levels of efficiency they require a management system capable of supervising the fleet and interfacing with the operational environment and its associated infrastructure. Enterprise Manager provides the critical role of managing activities for traffic control and job allocation by communicating with existing IT systems, interfacing with I/O on internal devices and equipment, and storing navigation parameters for the entire system.
The Omron LD mobile robot touchscreen is a 7 inch, high resolution display with wide viewing angle that can be added to any LD mobile robot. The touchscreen allows operators to interact locally with the vehicle offering a highly intuitive, simple display and vehicle control.

This Omron LD mobile robot accessory can be used both as a Call Button and as a Door Box. As a Call Button the unit is placed by the operator at a location where the vehicle is needed. The operator simply presses the button to request an Autonomous Intelligent Vehicle (AIV). The box has a visual display of how far the AIV is from the call box. The operator can install multiple call boxes even in a facility with just one AIV.
- One push-button with LED to call or cancel and AIV request
- Bright LEDs in a circle around the push-button to indicate the AIV distance from its goal (HERE, 5m, 10m, 20m, 40m, 80m, 150m, 300m)
- Beeper to indicate that the AIV has arrived at the goal or request is canceled
- Red error indicator LED indicating connectivity with the host and bridge
Automatic Door Interface
When used as Door Box, this unit acts as an interface between an automated door (user supplied) and the mobile robot such that the mobile robot can communicate directly with the door. This allows AIVs to move around facilities completely autonomously. One box is required for each automatic door.
Call/Door Boxes can use RF Mesh, WiFi or hard-wired ethernet to communicate with the AIV either for a single AIV installation or with the Enterprise Manager fleet control.
