As a deep-tech company and 100% BMW Group subsidiary, idealworks has been enabling the logistics of the future by providing the most flexible and scalable robotics ecosystem since November 2020. Having come about as a result of a forward-thinking planning condition within the BMW Group’s Logistics department back in 2015, our company combines numerous years of valuable experience and expertise in the field of smart, reliable intralogistics solutions. When BMW Group was awarded the German Logistics Award 2019 for its project Logistics Next, which included one of our core products, we saw a huge boost in terms of autonomous robots with national and international companies from all kinds of different industries and branches showing interest in exploring our solutions built for both the challenging environment and limitations of automotive logistics to meet common needs and to squeeze out greater efficiency.
At idealworks, we enable holistic robotics ecosystems, consisting of two key components: Our central cloud platform AnyFleet is connecting our fleet of robots and third-party devices as well as computer systems and IoT devices such as doors, sensors, and traffic lights, but also WMS and ERP systems. Based on VDA 5050, AnyFleet is acting as a fleet management system allowing for live monitoring of all integrated devices, systems, and vehicles, handling complex traffic situations. Our CE-certified autonomous mobile robot, the iw.hub, is another integral part of our solutions portfolio. Using SLAM, the AMR navigates autonomously and is able to operate safely in highly complex environments, covering a wide range of individual customer needs. We embrace innovation, through in-house development and partnerships, seizing opportunities and fostering our competitive advantage, being on a clear mission creating real impact, running productively with more than 300 units in use at customer sites from a variety of industries.
