Locus Robotics to Lead Session on Disruption in Warehouse Fulfillment at Home Delivery World Expo 2018 in Atlanta, GA

CMO Karen Leavitt will discuss the supply chain economics driving technology adoption in the warehouse and secrets to fulfillment success

WILMINGTON, Mass., April 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Locus Robotics (www.locusrobotics.com), the award-winning autonomous warehouse robotics company, announced that the Company's chief marketing officer, Karen Leavitt, will be speaking at the Home Delivery World Expo 2018 today, Thursday, April 19th at 12:30 PM. The expo is being hosted at the AmericasMart Center in Atlanta, GA.


Karen Leavitt, CMO, will be leading a session entitled, "4 Keys to Warehouse Fulfillment Success". Her presentation will discuss transformation in the supply chain, and the economic benefits of implementing technology - including collaborative robotics - for third party logistics providers and retailers looking to maximize productivity, solve for labor shortages, and efficiently manage seasonally fluctuating order volumes.

"Our robots are cool, but cool doesn't pay the bills in the warehouse," said Karen Leavitt. "Our customers seek innovation not for technology's sake, but because they have an urgent need to solve real-world problems."

"We're seeing that technology in the space is rapidly maturing and has already proved its worth to customers in the form of business productivity," said John Santagate, Research Director, Service Robotics at IDC. "Customers no longer see technology as an end in itself but insist on - and are seeing - measurable economic benefits."

Leavitt has over twenty years of experience in the technology industry, developing innovative, creative and effective marketing programs for a wide range of companies, from start-ups to Fortune 10000 public companies. She also serves as the dynamic and articulate corporate spokesperson for Locus, before press, analysts, customers, partners and investors.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
