The Truth Behind The Top Myths Surrounding Automated Warehouse Robots
Fetch Robotics CEO Melonee Wise recently hosted a webinar focused on debunking several of the most popular myths surrounding automated warehouse robots. During the presentation, she also examined several ways mobile robotics platforms can help streamline warehouse and manufacturing operations, while positively impact the bottom line.
The reason for this webinar was simple. As warehouse robots become more common, questions around what they are capable of have arisen, and several myths have emerged. For example:
Robots are taking jobs. They are expensive and time-consuming to deploy. They are not safe for humans to work around. They require complex IT systems to get up-and-running.
This webinar was a hit! Especially of use to those in attendance — directors of Third Party Logistics (3PL) providers, warehouses, e-commerce fulfillment centers and more — was the lively and engaging Q&A Wise hosted toward the close of the session.
A total of six popular myths surrounding automated warehouse robots were debunked during the event. A record version of the webinar can be found here for download. For those looking for a condensed recap of what was covered, the team at Fetch Robotics produced a 1-minute video clip recapping three of the top myths which have proven to be the most pervasive. They are as follows:
* Myth #1: Automated warehouse robots are not mature enough to perform well
* Myth #2: Warehouse robots are not yet safe enough to work alongside people
* Myth #3: Deploying automated warehouse robots requires complex IT systems
