Transport robots, Amazon
At Amazon’s fulfilment centres, automated transport robots move goods in storage units. On receiving an order, the software detects the bot closest to the ordered item. By following the barcode stickers on the floor and avoiding collision, the robot navigates and arrives at the target location. It then slides under the pod, lifts it, and navigates to a human operator who will pick up the item.
