Agility Robotics unveiled Agility Arc, a cloud automation platform for deploying and managing Digit fleets.

“Smart companies are looking to multi-purpose mobile manipulation solutions like Digit to automate themselves out of a very serious labor gap,” says Melonee Wise, CTO of Agility Robotics.Agility Arc lets warehouse operators put Digit to work quickly and easily in the most critical workflows, starting with bulk material handling in warehouses, distribution centers, and manufacturing sites.” 


Key takeaways:


  • Agility Arc is designed to simplify the deployment lifecycle. From facility mapping and workflow definition to operational management and troubleshooting, Agility Arc makes managing Digit fleets smooth and straightforward. Furthermore, Agility Arc will streamline fleet support, making it easier than ever to see alerts, troubleshoot problems, and contact customer support when needed, all in one place.
  • In its first iteration, Agility Arc will provide customers with operational visibility into critical KPIs like uptime, throughput, Mean Time Between Incidents (MTBI), and robot status, allowing customers to understand what’s happening in the workcell and how Digit is performing. Additionally, Agility Arc will provide industry standard APIs to simplify integration with existing warehouse management systems (WMS), warehouse execution systems (WES), and manufacturing execution systems (MES), among others.
  • As a cloud platform, Agility Arc will provide continuous software releases to enhance the customer experience. By leveraging the Software-as-a-Service model and industry-grade cloud capabilities, Agility Arc removes the hassle of managing infrastructure and provides unmatched security and scalability.


Agility Arc will provide unprecedented levels of transparency into the operation of Digit fleets,” Wise added. “Our customers will be able to understand what is happening in their workcells and act upon that information, making it easier for them to design, commission, operate, and support their mobile manipulation fleets.”
