What our clients say


“With the iw.hub, idealworks offers a unique logistics innovation meeting with a great response and demand both within the BMW Group and among customers worldwide."
– Milan Nedeljkovic, BMW Group

"We are constantly looking for new technologies that both help us as a company and support our employees. Monotonous tasks in the shipping area, for example, are taken over by idealworks’ AMRs.”
– Marcus Daute, Zalando SE
“We are more than convinced of our close collaboration with idealworks, the availability of their support team, and their products. We particularly like the fact that even spontaneous rescheduling and minor optimizations can be carried out quickly and easily by our staff thanks to their very user-friendly platform.”
– Stefan Degel, DRÄXLMAIER Group
"idealworks' solution portfolio makes everyday work a lot easier for our warehouse employees by automatically driving pallets to destination buffer locations via predefined transport routes. This allows the employees to focus on upstream and downstream processes, such as storing and picking the load carriers"
– Christoph Krieg, Geis Group

Learn more about our robotics ecosystem from our FAQs

idealworks provides a unique holistic solution that covers all relevant components of a successful robotics ecosystem. We do this by offering three compatible components: the central cloud platform AnyFleet, the robotic fleet iw.hub, and the robotic intelligence iw.os. This allows our clients to have a single point of contact for their logistics automation projects.

AnyFleet is a cloud-steering platform that optimizes automated processes in connected industrial facilities. It is a key component of our holistic solution. AnyFleet acts as a fleet management software with live monitoring and enables the integration of third-party devices, such as AMRs or AGVs, via the standardized communication interface VDA 5050. AnyFleet’s traffic management detects and prevents collisions and is able to handle complex situations.

As part of idealworks’ approach to enable the logistics of the future and ensure safe operations and optimized material flows, the cloud platform connects to various third-party devices. The VDA 5050 communication interface allows various AMRs and AGVs to be integrated. AnyFleet also connects IoT devices like doors, sensors, stations, and traffic lights, and computer systems like WMS and ERP.

iw.os is designed for mobile robot vendors to power their AMRs through our five modular components: cloud connector, AMR navigation, AI on the edge, hardware drivers, and DevOps toolkit. The iw.os software stack has been an integral part of the iw.hub since its inception.

The CE-certified AMR, iw.hub, is an integral part of the idealworks robotics ecosystem. Using SLAM technology, the iw.hub navigates autonomously in mixed traffic and highly complex environments. With the integrated sensors, the iw.hub is able to detect and safely avoid obstacles. The AMR covers a wide range of individual client needs, allowing it to serve a variety of use cases and respond flexibly to different requirements. With a speed of 8 km/h (5 mph), the iw.hub can autonomously pick up, transport and deliver payloads of up to 1,000 kg (2,200 lbs).
Prospects have several ways to experience our robotics ecosystem upfront. In order to get an impression of our robotics ecosystem under real-world conditions, we give our interested clients the opportunity to visit us on-site at our showroom and in a BMW Group production plant. Further, demo days can be scheduled at clients sites, allowing them to test our solution at their facilities before making a final purchase decision.
