THE FUTURE OF SMART LOGISTICS AUTOMATION

Decathlon’s recent growth has been rapid. To continue to grow and compete globally in the highly demanding retail and eCommerce sector, Decathlon needs to ensure its warehouses are underpinned by an automation solution that delivers in terms of cost, reliability, efficiency, flexibility and – crucially – scalability. Decathlon began its cooperation with Geek+ in China – where a highly competitive labor market makes hiring and retaining team members one of the biggest challenges for many local businesses. It was the challenge of finding enough teammates that initially made Decathlon decide to initiate a search for a radical new automation solution.

THE NEW ERA OF SUPPLY CHAIN AFTER COVID-19

The coronavirus outbreak has brought the entire world economy to a virtual standstill for a while. Most countries’ governments have ordered a lockdown and arranged for a halt to business activities in all sectors of the economy except those which were considered “essential”, such as food and medicine. This is a situation that had never happened before on a global scale, and it is still ongoing as this report is being produced. Grocery and pharmaceutical stores have been the only shops open on a typical high street anywhere in the world. Read this white paper to learn more about the new era of supply chain after Covid-19

TUV RHEINLAND E-BOOK: ROBOT SAFETY: AN IN-DEPTH EXPLORATION OF CATEGORIES AND STANDARDS

It's 2021, and robotics have been used by innovators more than ever, especially when it comes to solving employment and safety problems brought about by the coronavirus pandemic. However, as more businesses look to implement more complex or novel robots into their current work practices and manufacturing processes, they're finding that the robotics safety landscape is complex and difficult to navigate. Our e-book aims to create a comprehensive foundation of the specific standards governing the manufacture, integration, and use of robotics, outlined by country and/or region.

A KINDER, GENTLER COLLABORATIVE ROBOT

While collaborative robots (cobots) are emerging as key participants in the workplace it is imperative to remember that having humans and robots working in close proximity is not without its challenges, safety being paramount among them. This paper will focus on cobots and the safety requirements for their applications, with a focus on key standards and regulations such as ISO/TS 15066 and ANSI/RIA R15.06.

UL 1740: A GUIDE TO KEY UPDATES

While many of the changes to the UL 1740:2018 standard were modest, there were a few important modifications that can potentially impact current and future certifications of robotic equipment. The purpose of this paper is to outline those changes, the potential impact and your responsibilities based on the update to the 4th Edition of UL 1740.

UNDERSTANDING COMPLIANCE REQUIREMENTS FOR INDUSTRIAL ROBOTS

Because of their long presence in the workplace, industrial robots have well-defined safety standards and testing protocol. However, advances in technology mean that they now have other features beyond the basic definitions, so it is important that these robots comply with any additional end-product standards for electrical, mechanical and functional safety. Download our whitepaper to learn more about the compliance requirements for industrial robots.

NEXT-GENERATION INDUSTRIAL ROBOTICS ADVANCED BY AI

Industrial robotics integrated with AI is predicted to grow the market by more than 15%, reaching $66.48 billion by 2027, according to Fortune Business Insights. Expanding the use cases for industrial robotics requires negotiating long-standing technical roadblocks, and AI is critical to new approaches.
