ATS - Automated Material Transport Systems
Automated Material Transport Systems (ATS) are important logistics applications used in hospital logistics. In ATS, transport robots take over the automated supply and removal for all areas, for example in hospitals and care facilities. There, the stations are supplied with material or food over several floors and at the same time unnecessary items, such as dishes, laundry or waste, are transported to the respective disposal areas. In near future, transport robots will take on more tasks in this area, such as transporting beds to the hospital room and providing individual care for individual patients.
