- A French AI robotics start-up has recently launched a warehouse robot that can climb shelves.
- According to Exotec Solutions, this doubles the number of orders that can be processed compared to similar robots.
- The robots use AI and laser scanner navigation to process orders.
French AI robotics start-up Exotec Solutions has just announced its latest development, the Skypod.
Skypods are warehouse robots that navigate by climbing shelves rather than moving the shelves to human workers.
The robots are able to process 400 picks an hour which is twice the speed of other similar logistics robots according to Exotec Solutions.
“From inception, the system has been designed to ensure fast deployment and full scalability. Skypod’s free navigation allows the robots to travel anywhere within the system, something the competition can’t offer today. The system’s software is powered by the latest artificial intelligence, allowing us to deploy on site within days instead of weeks,” says Renaud Heitz, CTO and cofounder.
The robots can reach speeds of 10mph and are able to carry a payload of up to 30kg at a time.
