With SARA (for Smart Analytics Reporting Application), ek robotics provides customers and operators of automated guided vehicles (AGVs) with a powerful tool to comprehensively analyse their own system in a short time. The app is intuitive to use and the results are presented in a clear and easy-to-understand form. In addition, SARA provides concrete information and recommendations that can be used to optimise the FTS with a view to more efficiency and higher performance.
Always knowing exactly how a running AGV is doing is essential in order to be able to analyse and optimise the performance of one’s own intralogistical processes. In many industries, a high degree of automation is now considered a tangible, if not decisive, factor in order to be able to compete. This applies not only to the actual production of goods and commodities, but also increasingly to intralogistics. Small and medium-sized companies have also discovered the advantages of a smart, up-to-date solution for the internal transport of goods and rely on automated guided vehicles from ek robotics.
Powerful software tool for thorough analysis
Designing, setting up and operating an AGV is in itself a complex task that requires competent partners. Once installed, the work on such a system is not over, because in the interaction with individual company divisions, changes are constantly occurring to which the AGV must be adapted. This is where SARA comes into play: the analysis app records all relevant data of an AGV, evaluates them in various statistics in real time and thus offers a reliable overview.
The standard package of SARA contains the four basic modules Dashboard with an overall view of the system performance, Transport Analysis, Fleet Analysis and Event Analysis. With these, the AGV including all vehicles is permanently tracked live, and any weak points, performance peaks and conspicuous driving course areas are quickly identified. On this basis, SARA creates recommendations for action to improve the system. The handling of the software itself is uncomplicated: SARA is cloud-based and can be operated with any standard internet browser, no installation or updates are necessary. ek robotics offers SARA as Software as a Service (SaaS). To use the app, all you need is an end device with an internet connection.
