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.
Friction in our supply chain -- delays or quality issues, for example -- directly impacts our bottom line. We're a quickly growing company and we need to be agile enough to take advantage of new opportunities as they arise.
We'll be participating in an on-floor seminar, "Bridging the Labor Gap in your DC" where we'll discuss how robotic solutions can augment your labor force using the latest advances in robotic technology. Booth: #7619
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
MODEX 2020 takes place in Atlanta, GA March 9th - 12th. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years events.
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.
Air cargo facilities are undergoing rapid digital transformation via the adoption of automation technologies. - the most recent one being fully autonomous drones. At the leading edge of this innovation in inventory management is IAG Cargo.
Event to feature 950 exhibits, 150 education sessions and keynotes from Ambassador Nikki Haley, Tan Le, Peyton and Archie Manning.
The trend of investment in and acquisition of mobile robotic companies seeking to automate the movement of goods within warehouses, fulfillment centers, and manufacturing facilities is still rising. Only in recent months, IDTechEx has seen three notable activities.
Last mile delivery is the most expensive part of the delivery chain, often representing more than 50% of the overall cost. This is mainly because it is the least productive and automated step. As such, many are seeking to bring automation into the last mile.
The profitable companies of the future will be those that can adapt to the change in sourcing, production and distribution that are happening today, and are flexible enough to take advantage of new technologies.
Dingo is a compact, lightweight and cost-effective indoor robotic platform that is extensible and programmable, and designed to accelerate robotics research and education.
This Honeywell Intelligrated white paper examines the specific labor, operational and technological challenges on the loading docks of distribution centers (DCs), and introduces a new solution to help deliver the performance modern supply chains require.
While it's true that robots are making their way into more and more operations, the truth is there are not enough skilled workers to fill the number of available jobs.

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
