Continental and TÜV SÜD sign MoU to develop a set of safety criteria for Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) to be deployed in cities, supporting more widespread adoption. One of the first projects the companies will collaborate on is the safe and secure teleoperation of AMRs used in last-mile deliveries.

Continental and TÜV SÜD launch partnershipThere has been an increased interest in AMRs in recent years, especially since the pandemic started. Today, leading technology company Continental is including these state-of-the-art solutions into their product portfolio. Building on the company’s years of extensive research in the robotics field, it is now ready to unveil Continental Mobile Robots, a new area in its robotics business. In September 2022, Continental will introduce to the AMR market its first intralogistics robot, featuring the company’s industry-leading technology and software solutions.

Many trials are being conducted globally, including in Singapore, to assess the capabilities of AMRs as well as their safety aspects. However, there has yet to be a city where AMRs have been deployed on a large commercial scale. Regulatory authorities around the world are looking closely into how AMRs can operate safely with other road or sidewalk users such as pedestrians, cyclists and drivers with vehicles or personal mobility devices.

Continental and TÜV SÜD announced in May 2022 a complementary partnership to develop a set of safety criteria for the use of AMRs in the urban environment.
