The 16 percent solution
Warehouse logistics is evolving. Robot technology, leveraging sensors, controllers, software modules, cameras, and visualization is headed to take control of all repeatable processes.
According to Susan Eustis, lead author of the WinterGreen Research team: “The opportunity to participate in industrial logistics robotic markets is compelling. This new market is evolving as new automated process based on breakthroughs and innovation in technology is expressed in robotic platforms.
“Grippers, microprocessor technology, optics, cameras, nanotechnology, new materials, thin film batteries, and sensors are among the technologies being put to use in innovative ways in robots. The ability to apply any technology from any company is phenomenal.”
What’s so surprising is that a survey by PriceWaterhouseCoopers found that only 16 percent of logistics operations see robot-driven automation in their futures over the next three years. What’s the disconnect?
Meet the new breed of robots for logistics
That low anticipated usage rate is probably why so many in the robotics industry are gunning for it. New logistics robots as well as old-line robotics manufacturers are retooling with new products earmarked for warehouses and material handling.
The Robotics Business Review RBR50 witnessed five of these companies pop onto the RBR50 list just this year (2016). Amazing! But what’s up with that?
That 16 percent screams out that many in the logistics industry and many of its technology integrators may not be aware of the robotics buildup headed their way. That meager 16 percent is about to change fast and dramatically.
Developers of these new warehouse bots have surely studied the logistics marketplace and the opportunities therein in depth. They are ready and so are their machines.
Meet the disruptors that will transform logistics:
- Seven of the newest kids on the block and their wild machines, plus
- Five established AVG makers refocusing on warehousing and logistics, plus
- The big boys of robotics now turning a collective gaze toward logistics
