Autonomous robots can operate independently of human control and carry out tasks in open environments that do not require human supervision.
Sensors are used by Autonomous robots to perceive the world around them and employ decision-making structures for an optimised next step based on their data and mission. The sensors also include cameras, LIDAR, radar, and other types of sensors to detect obstacles and navigate the surrounding area.
The several tasks that Autonomous robots can perform in air freight warehouses are:
- Product Flow Automation: Automating product flow in warehouses with Autonomous robots to maximise safety and boost productivity by handling tasks such as testing, picking, packing, sorting, building, inspecting, or transporting materials of various sizes and weights
- Material Transport: To transport various other materials within warehouses with robots that can help free up human workers from mundane tasks and allow them to focus on more value-added activities.
- Inventory Management: In Warehouses, Autonomous robots can be used to perform various inventory management tasks. The robots can also help improve the accuracy and speed of inventory management, ultimately leading to lower costs for companies.
- Maintenance: The tasks can be properly maintained with various other equipment and machinery. The robots can also reduce the risk of injury to workers and improve the efficiency of maintenance operations.
- Fleet management: The management of the movement of goods within warehouses can be deployed with Autonomous robots to improve the efficiency and accuracy of warehouse operations.
In air freight warehouses, autonomous robots perform several tasks with advanced technologies and aid in supporting new applications and use cases for autonomous robots to be discovered.
