AMRs and AGVs

> inVia Robotics Picker Robot: Through a robotics-as-a-service (RaaS) model, inVia Robotics combines its picker robots with AI-powered software to optimize warehouse operations. The solution uses algorithms to calculate inventory location, the optimal labor needed to complete fulfillment tasks, and the most efficient paths to take items from storage shelves to the central inVia PickerWall where workers are stationed to compile orders.

> PopPick: Geek+’s goods-to-person solution can increase picking efficiency to up to 650 totes per hour, improving warehouse storage density by 50%. Geek+ picking robots carry movable shelves to workstations where PopPick’s intelligent robot arms retrieve totes or boxes from the shelves and place them in two picking points for operators. PopPick incorporates order forecasts to automatically adjust tote locations within the inventory rack to optimize picking efficiency.

> Vecna Counterbalanced Fork Truck: This autonomous mobile robot (AMR) from Vecna Robotics offers vertical lift of up to 72 inches to help warehouses move a wide range of payloads and pallet types and lift inventory to and from equipment. The intelligent pallet- handling solution works alongside other materials handling vehicles and human workers to improve efficiency and throughput.

> Magazino SOTO: The mobile robot SOTO from Magazino automates material supply between the warehouse and the assembly line, transporting small load carriers or totes autonomously. The SOTO robot can pick up load carriers of different sizes and deliver them to flow racks at different heights, rotating them 90° to 180° as needed. Equipped with sensors, 3D cameras, and the ACROS.AI operating system, SOTO can perceive its environment, react to changes, and learn from experience.
