Autonomous Mobile Robots were developed by Chinese startup Geek. They are guided by QR codes on the floor, and 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 the data to improve their algorithms to make the robots more efficient.
More than 15,000 robots are in more than 30 countries, including in Nike and Decathlon warehouses, where robots are commonplace in warehouses around the world. 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.
