Google to Use Robots for Parcel Delivery

With Amazon announcing the launch of their Prime Air Project, Google too has decided to pitch itself as a worthy competitor in the parcel delivery race with the use of robots - a concept that Parcel2Go thinks will take the retail industry by storm.

Technology's ability to take huge leaps and bounds has allowed it to shape a number of different marketplaces - from personal pleasure to business productivity. And as consumers demand more instant gratification (thanks to on-demand technology enabling short-term solutions such as mobile payments and sharing content), companies are seizing the opportunity to have their goods distributed immediately - with the likes of Amazon and Google only too happy to help.


Les Yates, Marketing Executive, said: "Our broad experience has made us a household name both in the UK and overseas - and it's our reputation that has helped us establish a number of successful partnerships with many a leading courier service.

"What we've come to notice through our international connections is that with ever-changing trends, so the marketplace has had to make the relevant adaptations. We believe it's time that such elite technology is now readily accessible and available for each and every customer, and look forward to such innovations improving the modern landscape."

Parcel2Go already delivers packages to an impressive 240 countries, working with a number of parcel suppliers to process huge volumes of orders quickly and effectively. Sending out over two million parcels each year as well as becoming the first ever online parcel delivery service to reach 100,000 users, Parcel2Go constantly updates its services to ensure its customers receive quality standards at affordable rates.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
