As warehouses become bigger, they also hold massive amounts of inventory.
This requires workers to cover long distances and carry large weights throughout a workday. Collaborative robots or cobots are semi-autonomous machines that assist workers in carrying out their tasks, reduce physical labor, and improve worker safety. These robots are flexible and easily reprogrammable to undertake a diverse range of functions such as following workers as mobile storage bins or picking up items.
Cobots-Solutions is a French startup that develops collaborative robots for logistics. The startup’s JAKA Zu series robots feature wireless connectivity and remote programming support. The collaborative robots use an array of vision systems to recognize 2D, 3D, object, color, location, and distance. They find multiple applications in logistics, including pick and place, palletizing, and packing.
