Warehouse Robotic Automation

Warehouse Robotic Automation

[BONUS] Download the nice PDF version of the lesson HERE! These are warehouse robots: Warehouse robotics changed the way work used to be done in warehouses. The rise of the COVID-19 pandemic revealed the weaknesses of systems and processes that relied only on physical presence, leading to a surge in automation. The rise of the COVID-19 pandemic changed the way the processes were previously done. Robots and automated systems replaced the processes that used to be done manually or through face-to-face interaction. The processes that used to be done manually or through face-to-face interaction rapidly switch towards automated processes. Automated…
