With Boston Dynamics, the Group will create a robotics value chain, from robot component manufacturing to smart logistics solutions
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.
Where there is e-commerce, there is inevitably logistics management. After all, what could be more efficient than a network-connected fleet of AGVs to travel around huge warehouses and find the required product in record time?
The Boxed Bot is extremely flexible, allowing an operator to design and produce exact pallet patterns quickly and easily from bags to boxes and other product types, and does so with a small footprint starting at just 8'x10'.
Multiple forces are converging to propel this shift toward automating quality control in distribution centers. Retailers must untangle a wide assortment of issues to navigate this shift.
Running a well-optimized warehouse can help maintain high productivity levels, reduce error rates and keep clients satisfied. There are many ways to achieve better optimization, and installing automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) is a popular solution.
Watch this MIT startup's robot unload a trailer blazingly fast. The secret? Keep people in the picture.
Because supply chains consume resources on a large scale, they are responsible for a disproportionately large share of the world's carbon emissions.
With more than 70% of labor in warehousing being dedicated to picking and packing, numerous companies are gradually investing in logistics automation. But what happens when the robots must handle an unlimited number of (unknown) stock keeping units?
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.
Supply chains are relying on automation to effectively adapt to fluctuating demand levels, new safety protocols, and shrinking labor pools. The need to operate efficiently, safely, and productively with less people is critical for today and also for success in the future.
Autonomous vehicles and effective autonomous transport solutions for instance can contribute a significant improvement in throughput efficiency and error reduction for e-fulfilment applications.
Generating accurate height data of boxes relative to the conveyor system is challenging to achieve with a single measurement tool. More often than not, this requires additional system configuration and potentially scripting.
With the breakthrough in vaccination and when situation is under control, last mile delivery will certainly not look the same, as the companies are preparing for innovation shift post lift of the restrictions to rapidly assess and adapt their supply chains.
