Got Automated Vehicles?

Complete system connectivity for AMRs, AGVs, and more!

The Logistics Integration Framework Technology (LIFT), developed by Flexware Innovation, is a flexible, configurable solution that allows AMRs to connect and communicate with existing shop floor and enterprise software systems. LIFT simplifies plant floor logistics by serving as the “technical plumbing” and allows information to flow seamlessly between all required systems.

LIFT is designed to extend the capabilities of your autonomous vehicle management system by seamlessly integrating with numerous ERP, WMS, and Automation/Control systems. It supports multiple communication standards, including REST, Modbus, TCP-IP, OPC, and more. In addition to autonomous vehicles, LIFT can also be used to coordinate activities across manual logistics operations (forklifts, pallet jacks, etc.). The result is a single, integrated logistics solution for your entire facility.

Reading List

These resources shed light on common AGV/AMR challenges and emerging technologies that Flexware’s LIFT platform expertly addresses.

An Automated Logistics Framework from the Plant Floor to the Enterprise

Autonomous vehicles require communication with existing systems to know what to convey, when to transport, and where to transport. Without a framework for integrating AGVs and AMRs into existing infrastructure, their entire potential is lost.

Is a Real-Time Locating System Right for Your Organization?
