Power density driving the next generation of robotic functionality

Today’s mobile robots are a vital and fast-growing part of today’s economy and are enabling new ways of doing business. For most mobile robots carrying a larger payload, having longer run times and speed to destination are all critical specifications and competitive advantages. And for mobile robots, power is often the limiting factor for next-generation innovations. Size, weight, power efficiency are integral to power design, enabling or limiting the robots performance.
