In this article, let's dive deeper into how it works and what factors you should consider if you are thinking to switch to using the Goods-to-Person fulfillment model.
How an integrated hardware and software approach can simplify the development and deployment of robotics applications
If you are an investor, business leader, or technology user who seeks to understand the technologies you are investing in, this article is for you. What follows is an explanation of vision-guided robotics and deep-learning algorithms.
As retailers forage for new ways to cope, many have decided to close down physical stores and focus on restructuring their business, either through expansion of online retail or introduction of novel business concepts.
On July 1st Zebra Technologies announced that it would be acquiring Fetch Robotics. It will be paying $290 million to acquire the 95% of the company that it does not already own, in a deal that values Fetch Robotics at $305 million.
Logistics is a constant race to deliver at fast speeds while maintaining a standard of impeccable accuracy at the lowest possible cost. The rise of intense competition makes next-generation applications essential for becoming a trendsetter in this industry.
Five autonomous mobile robots (AMR) MiR1000 have improved productivity, safety and eliminated storage problems within the Florisa plant, a company that operates in the textile segment, with production focused on the dyeing of natural and artificial fibers.
As the use of robotics and automation increases, so too does the need to protect these valuable assets.
The risk to humans in warehouses is well known with the UK logistics sector reporting around 28,000 non-fatal accidents at work annually but businesses are now realising the risk of safety to highly sophisticated and expensive assets noting that these too require protection.
You can't totally count conveyors out, because they'll always have a place. But the truth is, robots are here, and AMRs are changing warehouse operations. While conveyors are effective, their capabilities are also limited.
The challenge for many companies is how to consistently maintain a safe workplace without creating barriers to productivity or innovation. Enter autonomous mobile robots (AMRs).
Businesses which have invested in robotics quickly realize the impact of increased productivity and continue investing. There is no "turn back syndrome" for these solutions; the increases in competitiveness and quality push businesses to adopt a continuous robotics policy.
Energy efficiency is an increasingly prominent concern as electronics adoption and environmental consciousness both rise. Robotics must consume less energy to sustain their growth in the future.
Automation in the supply chain isn't a new phenomenon, but it carries new urgency now. What was once a competitive edge is now a necessity. Robotics will power the logistics industry this year, and here's how.
By collating all the robots onto one platform, we can enable the robots to operate collectively rather than individually. If all the robots are on one platform and under one traffic control, they will be able to share their location and become very efficient.
The Schneider Electric Polska plant deals with the production of low voltage apparatus switches and accessories for these products. They have implemented an autonomous mobile robot MiR500 that transports finished products between the production line and the warehouse.

Piab's Kenos KCS gripper enables a collaborative robot to handle just about anything at any time. Combining Piab's proprietary air-driven COAX vacuum technology with an easily replaceable technical foam that molds itself around any surface or shape, the gripper can be used to safely grip, lift and handle any object. Standard interface (ISO) adapters enable the whole unit to be attached to any cobot type on the market with a body made in a lightweight 3D printed material. Approved by Universal Robots as a UR+ end effector.
