VDA 5050

arculus was the first technology company showcasing the possibility of controlling multiple AMRs from different suppliers with one fleet management back in 2016. In collaboration with AUDI AG and the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) arculus with its know-how as a software provider developed the standardization of the unified AMR interface VDA5050.
