To manage growth in eCommerce and its associated challenges retail companies will need to embrace automation. Smart logistics provider Geek+ and market research firm Interact Analysis cooperated to create a whitepaper to discuss the future for smart logistics automation.
Honeywell Study: Advancements In Warehouse Automation Will Present New Job Classes, Career Opportunities
While investment in automation is seen as vital for companies to remain competitive, supply chain leaders of American companies still envision a strong need for human capital in the workplace, according to a Honeywell
The lifetime cost of ownership of a mobile robot is largely influenced by the design of its drivetrain. If the OEM uses well designed and proven components, the mobile robot will provide many years of service with minimal downtime for maintenance.
When orders are placed in restaurants within the plaza via Baemin application, the robot delivers to the ground floor of customer's residence.
Until recently, AGVs were the only option for automating internal transport tasks. Today, a more sophisticated technology is competing with them: Autonomous Mobile Robots AMR. Although both AGVs and AMRs allow materials to be moved from point A to point B, the comparison ends there.
Rocos Partners With Boston Dynamics to Upskill Autonomous Spot Robots With Remote Operation - All the Way From New Zealand
The importance of autonomous robots has been highlighted during the COVID-19 pandemic where many have been used to encourage social distancing, clean public spaces and hospitals, and even deliver vital medication.
There are three adaptations we are watching closely at Aethon since we believe they are a trend and may become more permanent. These adaptations will have a significant influence specifically on the use of automation and autonomous mobile robotics.
Brain Corp, an AI company creating transformative core technology in the robotics industry, today announced it has raised $36 million in Series D funding to help meet the growing demand for autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) now on the front lines of the COVID-19 health crisis.
Mobile Robots and Autonomous Vehicles: IDTechEx Analysts Discuss How Coronavirus Pushes Logistic Automation up the Agenda
Last week Amazon announced that it planned on hiring 100,000 extra workers to meet the rise in demand for online shopping created by Coronavirus-caused shutdowns and social distancing.
The advancements in mobile robots technology have enabled manufacturers to develop robots suitable to their operational needs and carry out their implementation for their applications.
This is our first time at MODEX, so we're excited to see the latest innovations created for the supply chain to advance automation and overall improve logistics for these companies. Booth #9435
We have developed specialized lifting solutions to solve the problems with repetitive strain injuries of manual handling in most of the areas in a Distribution Center (receiving dock, storage area, picking area, shipping dock). Booth #2602
Attendees looking to demonstrate ROI, increase operational excellence, or drive continuous improvement initiatives will see how actionable analytics provide real-time visibility into key performance metrics. Booth #10012
In response to the growing demand for improved robotic assistance in industry sectors such as retail and light industry, we created MARS, the Mobile Arm Robot System, a robot with more sophisticated autonomous navigation and inspection capabilities.
Given the proliferation of warehouses, distribution centers, direct to consumer (D2C) business models, fleets of AMRs, questioning the validity of innovation is worthy of examination.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent
• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
