inVia Robotics Releases Robotic Goods to Person Solution for Warehouse Automation

The inVia Dynamic AS/RS goods-to-person solution delivers existing totes, corrugated trays, and more directly to pickers, packers and replenishers, thereby eliminating human travel time and liability in warehouse aisles.

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--inVia Robotics announced today the national availability of the inVia Dynamic Automated Storage and Retrieval System (AS/RS), designed to transform the fulfillment and material handling operations of e-commerce retailers and fulfillment providers. This is the second such release from inVia Robotics in less than a year, focused on mobile robots in warehousing.


The inVia Dynamic AS/RS goods-to-person solution delivers existing totes, corrugated trays, and more directly to pickers, packers and replenishers, thereby eliminating human travel time and liability in warehouse aisles. This dynamic system integrates with existing operations, resulting in dramatically lower up-front costs. Totes, racks and the flow of goods can be easily modified at any time. The inVia RMS (Robot Management System) connects with any WMS and dynamically adjusts its behavior to maintain the highest units per hour in the industry, resulting in the lowest cost per pick and fastest ROI available in the market.

"We work closely with our customers to understand and provide solutions to the challenges they face. Increased consumer demand, labor shortages and tough competition have changed the industry drastically. Fixed automation solutions with high capital expenditures are no longer cutting it," said Corwin Carson, Chief Revenue Officer at inVia.

Historically, building an AS/RS has been an expensive and time consuming construction project, without guaranteeing a timely ROI. The inVia Dynamic AS/RS offers a cost-effective picking solution that grows exponentially with a business, instead of requiring investment today for a peak throughput in 5 years. With inVias solution, a goods to person system can be deployed and fulfilling orders in 1 week, SKU storage can be added at no cost and robots arrive ready to work. When the business outgrows or adds warehouses, they can bring their flexible robots with them.

This newly released system minimizes the non-value added labor walking between picks, at a fraction of the cost of competitors, thus enabling "any business to compete with the largest companies spending tens of millions on automation and robotics," says Aaron Leon of LD products. Traditional goods to person solutions try to address this, but require an entire warehouse retrofit or even a new warehouse and tens of millions of dollars of capital.

The inVia Dynamic AS/RS can be purchased or leased with an innovative "Robots as a Service" pricing model.

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.
