Contained in the state of warehouse automation

Spread the love


At present’s episode of The Robotic Report Podcast is a deep dive into warehouse automation. We focus on the position humanoids are hoping to play in logistics, together with how GXO is testing the Digit humanoid from Agility Robotics. We additionally focus on the state of cell robots with John Santagate, Vice President of Robotics at Körber Provide Chain. We additionally discuss synthetic intelligence and the expansion of choosing robots with Peter Chen, Co-Founder and CEO of Covariant.

After all, the massive information of the week is that GXO, the world’s largest pure-play contract logistics supplier, is testing Digit at a warehouse in Georgia for the worldwide womenswear model Spanx. Within the pilot, Digit is shifting totes off of autonomous cell robots (AMRs) and onto a conveyor. The AMRs, which look like Chucks from 6 River Programs, carry the packed totes to a switch station. Digit then makes use of its notion system to detect the AMR has arrived.
