An Auspicious Time

Perhaps it started when Amazon turned tens of thousands of Kiva Systems mobile robots loose in fulfillment centers around the world.

Or maybe it was triggered by crazy fast Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) from Nvidia and others, powering new products and systems based on Virtual Reality and Machine Learning.

Maybe the driver has been the dramatic decade-long cost decline for robotic arms.

Lower costs, both for collaborative cobots and industrial arms, have enabled robotic arms to reach well beyond automotive production lines.

And still, others might raise a hand and argue that it’s all about bioinspired robotic grippers, using sensing with compliant fingers.

For our part, we believe that all these trends are important indicators of what is quickly becoming the era of robotic piece-picking.

So how do you decide which robotic piece-picking solution is best for you?

Download this whitepaper today to:

  • Learn about the 3Rs of robotic piece-picking - range, rate, and reliability - and why these metrics are important.
  • Learn about the benefits of integrated robotic piece-picking solutions and what elements need to be brought together (hint: it involves adaptive robotic hands, cameras, and intelligent software that provides coordination and learning).
  • Learn about where you can integrate robotic piece-picking solutions into your warehouse workflows (from goods-to-picker systems to sorters and more).
