The review meeting for the final draft of the group standard “Interface Specification for Industrial Application Mobile Robots and their Dispatch System Data” was held in SIASUN
On February 23, under the organization of the Standardization Technical Committee of the CMR Industry Alliance, the review meeting for the final draft of the group standard “Interface Specifications for Industrial Application Mobile Robots and their Dispatch System Data” was held in Shenyang Siasun robot automation Co., Ltd.! The meeting was presided over by Yang Wenhua, Director of the Standardization Committee, and Han Zhiping, Software Engineer of Siasun Robotics, the leading unit of the standard. Li Jinke, Secretary-General of CMR Industry Alliance, Gao Feng, Liu Yang, Deputy Directors of the Standardization Committee, and representatives of nearly 50 companies participating in the formulation of the standard passed the meeting. Participated in the meeting both offline and online.
The “Interface Specifications for Industrial Application Mobile Robots and Their Dispatching System Data” document stipulates the content and format of the communication interface between industrial application mobile robots and their dispatching system, communication protocol structure, information transmission, interaction and control and other technical requirements. This group standard is applicable to the design, development and application of software related to mobile robot systems for industrial applications. This group standard stipulates that the communication method between the industrial application mobile robot and its dispatching system adopts TCP or UDP transmission protocol.
Since the group standard “Interface Specification for Industrial Application Mobile Robots and Its Dispatching System Data” was formally established in February 2022, it has lasted for one year and has been discussed in many online and offline meetings. Detailed issues and questions were discussed in detail, and finally all parties reached a consensus. The group standard was officially finalized, and it will be officially finalized at the “2023 Twelfth Manufacturing Logistics and Warehousing Intelligent Engineering Conference” held on April 20. release!
The release of the group standard “Interface Specifications for Industrial Application Mobile Robots and their Scheduling System Data” is of great significance to the entire mobile Robot Industry. Both the mobile robot industry and terminal application customers attach great importance to the unification of dispatching system interface standards. In addition to mainstream mobile robot manufacturers in the industry, CATL, BYD, FAW-Volkswagen, Foxconn, Huawei, Sany Group, Baowan Logistics, Changan Minsheng Logistics, Volkswagen Logistics, ZTE, Liyao Logistics and many other industrial users.
In recent years, China’s mobile robot industry has developed rapidly. According to the data of the CMR Industry Alliance and the statistics of the New Strategic Mobile Robot Industry Research Institute, in 2022, the sales volume of China’s industrial application mobile robots (AGV/AMR) is 93,000 units (including sales to overseas markets) , an increase of 29.17% compared with 2021, and the market size reached 18.5 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 46.82%. With the continuous extension of the breadth and depth of the application of mobile robots in industrial applications, new problems have also emerged. When an application scenario may require multiple types of multi-brand products to work together, each supplier has its own specific scheduling management software. The coordination between application manufacturers and suppliers not only requires a lot of manpower and material resources in the early stage, but also has poor interoperability in use, and also encounters a series of problems such as increased maintenance costs in the later stage. .
Europe has released the relevant standard VDA 5050 communication interface standard in 2021. This standard deals with the communication between the AGV and the master control (in other words, the fleet management software program). However, VDA5050 is a standard from Germany. The Chinese market actually has its own characteristics and needs to formulate its own standards.
Promoting multi-machine collaboration and multi-brand dispatching has become the general trend of industry development, and the unification of dispatching system interface standards is imminent. This is the key for China Mobile Robots to stand out from the competition among many global mobile robot brands in the future, and it is also a key breakthrough for China Mobile Robots to grasp the right to speak of global mobile robots.
Yang Wenhua, director of the CMR Industry Standards Committee, said: “The unification of the interface specifications of the mobile robot dispatching system can effectively promote the healthy and stable development of the industry, save social costs, and reduce project risks. I believe that the release of this group standard will bring positive results to the industry. oriented impetus.”
Gao Gao, deputy director of the Alliance Standardization Committee and the vice president of Siasun Robot Mobile Robot BG, said: “During the formulation of the standard, the Standardization Committee fully considered the technical differences between different mobile robot companies and the needs of end users. Realistic needs enable this standard to be truly applied while maximizing the interests of all parties.”
Li Jinke, secretary-general of the CMR Industry Alliance, said that the alliance’s formulation of dispatch interface standards is not only the need of the industry but also the needs of users. It is a necessary way to promote the internationalization of mobile robots. Although it is painful, it is beneficial to the future development of the industry and has a far-reaching impact. “It took one year to formulate the group standard for the dispatching system interface specification, and the results are hard-won. After the standard is officially released, the alliance will promote the promotion and implementation of the group standard as soon as possible. We also look forward to, with the support of all participating companies, This group standard can maximize its value and promote the development of the industry.”
