Manufacturing warehouses witnessing a major change from human labor to warehouse robots. As human work would not completely go out of the picture, their role will change to operate robots. The main purpose of Artificial intelligence is to create the system that thinks, works, and processes situations in a human-like manner but with half the time than humans take to complete particular tasks. Manufacturers and Retailers are looking forward to robots in their warehouse, as they reduce logistical costs.
In warehouses, robots can pick up complete product shelves and drop it to different packing locations in warehouse itself. With help of sensors robots avoid collisions, algorithm built in bots determine picking and dropping decisions.
PROS AND CONS
The main advantages of warehouse robots are time effectiveness and cost reduction. Human labor requires leaves, lunch breaks, insurance and many several benefits but as robots come into picture, all these requirements are eliminated and they can carry out tedious jobs with less time than humans. If travelling as a group, robots can navigate automatically with help of server guidance
There are several advantages of using robots in warehouse but complete automation is also not possible for small and medium enterprises as the cost of warehouse robot is much more.
Using robots in warehouse means there is low chance that the picker will make a mistake compare to human labor. Along with mistakes, this system also reduce time spent during process of simply walking to different sections of the warehouse. And because of this, employees have more focus on quality control
