Smart Robotics Launches Smart Fashion Picker


Robotics specialists Smart Robotics have launched their latest ‘cobot’, the Smart Fashion Picker.

Smart Robotics is a service for picking automation for warehouse and logistics processes.

The company claims that the reliability of the cobot and its ability to run continuously ensures quicker return on investment.

This helps to address the labor crisis in logistics and bettering the physical and mental health of warehouse employees, the company claims.

The bot is able to pick a large amount of fashion items that are then placed in protective wrapping, straight from a cart or bin.

Vision sensors, motion, and task planning algorithms then enable the cobot to calculate what to pick next, as well as how to pick and place the item accurately into the next bin.

It also has the ability to easily detect when the bin is empty or filled.

“We’re super excited to introduce this product to the wider market after successful implementation with our initial customers,” Smart Robotics CEO says Johan Jardenvall, CEO at Smart Robotics.

“It has proven to deliver steady, reliable performance with the throughput necessary to be relevant in a warehouse whilst it is able to cope with the often changing large product ranges that are typical for the industry.”

“This product is an important step in our master plan to reduce repetitive and harmful work in warehouses around the globe.”

The retail technology firm says that its bot is capable of handling items at a pace that matches human pickers, requiring very little oversight.

A press release from Smart Robotics reads: “The system ensures reliable and uninterrupted operation and doesn’t require any special training from its operators. And it can safely be managed by people of all skill levels.”

“The Smart Fashion Picker is smarter in its ability to adapt with changing circumstances around it, such as changes in assortment, how the cobot interacts with people moving around it, etc.”

“As such, it is capable of working in the real world of warehouses, instead of a predefined, coded, environment.”
