Robotics deals with the design, construction, operation, and creation of robotic systems. A robotic system has the capability of performing tasks and duties for humans to simplify life and streamline work processes.
Today’s robots no longer perform monotonous, mechanical tasks. They are smart participants in Industry 4.0: at its core, the linking of the real-life factory with virtual reality.– Forbes, July 2018
RUMBLE has experience in deploying over 35 automation cells that include robotics and vision systems. By combining our expertise in AI and IoT, we provide the ability for businesses in manufacturing, distribution and retailing the ability to re-invent business processes through automation solutions by turning the internet into an e-commerce ecosystem.
The resulting gains in efficiencies using robotic systems are driving competitive advantages in a myriad of industries. For example:
Amazon’s purchase of KIVA Systems in 2012 has reduced their fulfillment costs by 20%. Today KIVA robots locate, retrieve and deliver products to a worker who reads on a screen what item to pick and what cubby it’s located in, scans a bar code and places the item in a bin that travels by conveyor belt to a packing station. Amazon has reduced total human labor to get a package onto a truck to one minute.
Ocado, an online grocer in the UK, has employed robotics and robust AI technologies as the backbone of a distribution network that quickly picks and delivers groceries to a customer’s front door for about the same price as they would cost at a physical store location.
The emergence of drone technologies has offered new opportunities in rethinking delivery and security business models. RUMBLE is currently working on a Department of Defense initiative involving a 24/7 drone surveillance initiative.
