In recent years, e-commerce warehousing concepts such as "machine substitution" and "smart warehousing" have become hot spots, and the downstream market demand has gradually become prominent. At present, the scale of my country's logistics market has reached trillions. Among them, the warehousing autonomous transportation management program is implemented in a low-cost and low-risk way to meet the urgent needs of various enterprises for automated warehouse management.
On September 18, it was reported that the warehousing autonomous transportation robot of AICRobo Robot Technology (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as AICRobo) has entered a large domestic e-commerce warehouse and "meeted" with pickers for the first time. Before they "encounter" with the robots, they had to walk a dozen kilometers in the warehouse every day with the picking trailer.
Picking is a very heavy task. The picker not only has to pick out the goods in the order between the shelves, but also arrange the goods of each order and transport them to the packing table together, especially the transportation link. The pickers have very high physical fitness requirements, and it is inevitable to make mistakes in working for a long time. I believe that any e-commerce company does not want to have problems in various links before delivery. For large companies that put user experience first, this This kind of problem is even more intolerable. Therefore, the introduction of warehouse autonomous transportation robots has become an inevitable demand for improving the efficiency of picking.
"I just tried to cooperate with the robot to carry out my daily picking work. The picking process is very smooth, and many colleagues who pull the trailer see me working with the robot, and they want to come over and'cooperate' with it. The most important thing is Yes, now I am not as tired as before, and the efficiency of picking has also improved a lot.” This is the actual feedback from the pickers after they experience the AICRobo warehousing autonomous transportation robot.
According to on-site observations, in warehouses using AICRobo warehousing autonomous transportation robots, pickers only need to stand in front of the warehousing autonomous transportation robots that have turned on the "intelligent follow mode" to make them recognize the pickers to follow. The picker will follow the picker to the goods area to pick the goods. After the picking is completed, the picker will issue instructions through the handheld terminal device, and the robot will return to the packing table area according to its autonomous navigation function and hand over the goods to the next process. personnel.
It is understood that AICRobo’s autonomous transportation robot is an autonomous transportation function completed by robotic technologies such as lidar/inertial integrated navigation. This type of autonomous mobile technology is a technology that subverts traditional mobile robots, making the robot’s walking trajectory no longer affected. The binding of wires or QR code marks. Just put the goods to be transported on the autonomous transportation robot, set the target point through the dispatch system or handheld terminal, the robot will plan the route by itself, and during the transportation process, the robot will use sensors such as lidar, ultrasonic, depth camera, etc. Identify obstacles (including low obstacles, suspended obstacles, transparent obstacles, etc.) and avoid them autonomously, and finally transport the goods to the designated location. It is reported that this autonomous transportation robot customized for the warehouse can carry 200kg.
It turns out that pickers who have to walk dozens of kilometers every day, after having the AICRobo warehousing autonomous transportation robot as a "helper", only need to bring the robot to help pick the goods, as for the heavy transportation work, just leave it to the robot.
AICRobo staff told reporters that automation and intelligence are the inevitable trend of the future warehousing and logistics industry. At present, our products have been successfully put into the initial application of the warehouse transportation link. In the future, we will develop more suitable warehouses based on actual application feedback. Demand, more flexible autonomous transportation robots, while reducing human cumbersome manual labor, improve the efficiency of warehouse management, and promote the intelligent development of "smart logistics".
