Mobile piece picking robots have always showed great promise and potential in regards to warehouse logistics and, more recently, the re-stocking store shelves. Often though, concerns about accuracy or speed factored tempered expectations about their actual usefulness.
That’s all beginning to change, however, says Tom Galluzzo, CEO of IAM Robotics, in the video interview below. Improvements in computer vision systems have allowed mobile piece picking robots to become quicker, as well as improving their ability to accurately identify objects. In warehouse settings, robots are now able to work at speeds equivalent to that of humans, quickly scanning shelves for the correct object, and placing it into a bin before moving on to the next one.
