Autonomous Systems

Enabling Huge Leaps in Productivity

Jabil Autonomous Systems Solutions

As progress continues further with electronics, smart systems, and AI, the relationship between humans and machines becomes more dynamic, changing how society and culture view our relationship with technology. The notion of autonomous devices is no longer seen as a science fiction threat, but a helpful innovation to open new spaces for human innovation and creativity. With practical applications, autonomous systems have already transformed manufacturing, enabling huge leaps in productivity with improved vision systems, greater mobility, and flexible assembly options. Consumers are excited by the advent of autonomous, self-driving vehicles, and savvy businesses are looking to implement autonomous systems in their products and internal operations. Jabil’s technological capabilities and manufacturing solutions make it a premier partner for businesses looking to optimize product manufacturing, supply chain management, and improve overall quality.

Jabil leverages multiple communications, motion control, optics, and sensor technologies to offer unparalleled mechatronic solutions for autonomous robotics and systems. Automated Jabil factories are increasingly networked and reconfigurable down to the smallest valve or switch. And safety is ensured, with humans working side-by-side with machines that can immediately sense an accidental presence and stop movement instantly.

Partnering with Jabil, manufacturers gain global access to leading automation engineers and state-of- the-art autonomous systems and processes. Jabil applies its unique expertise to deliver best practices, standards, and divisional resources that focus on specific products and market requirements. Companies have reduced platform equipment costs up to 30% and implemented core processes that are up to 30% faster — using considerably less factory floor space.
