High Demand for On-Demand, Same-Day, Quality Delivery Services

In an era of instant-everything, customers want shorter waiting time - which means faster, quicker delivery time for parcel and logistics players. Waiting time has trickled down from weeks to days, to Amazon's latest 2-hour delivery service "Prime Now" available in Singapore since July 2017. To top it all off, customers today want to select the delivery method, place and time.

Shorter delivery time, as well as option to choose, are fast becoming the key success factors that drive customer satisfaction, repeat customers and larger carts.
Same-day delivery is a key game changer as it blurs the thin line between online vs. offline shopping experiences. Customers are able to enjoy the convenience of online shopping and still have almost immediate access to the product - an advantage that is native to offline shopping.
What are the business models that enable these new delivery standards? What are the new technologies necessary to support such a complex delivery infrastructure? How are manpower and man-hours best utilised to ensure minimal down-time?

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.
