The Autonomous Mobile Robots were developed by Chinese startup Geek As they move around the warehouse they are guided by QR codes on the floor, and using AI they are able to make their own decisions, including what direction to travel and what route to take to their destination.
A team tracks these movements and uses it to improve their algorithms to make the robots more efficient.
In warehouses worldwide, robots are commonplace, and Geek says it has more than 15,000 robots in over 30 countries, including in Nike and Decathlon warehouses. Lit Fung said that having robots that become more efficient over time helps companies meet demands for fast delivery, as well as reducing labor costs and human error.
He says that everyone is looking for an automation solution to apply to their warehouse.
