Automation captures the imagination at IntraLogisteX 2022
BotsAndUs stand at IntraLogisteX was a hive of activity all day on the second and final day of the country’s leading intralogistics exhibition, taking place at the Coventry Building Society Arena on 29th and 30th March 2022.
Oana Jinga, Co-Founder, took time out to explain the rationale behind the company’s robotic solution that captured the attention of so many visitors.
“BotsAndUs technology focuses on data capturing and automation through fleets of autonomous robots that work alongside people and machinery in warehouse environments without workflow disruption,” she explained. “The data-gathering robot accelerates productivity, reduces unnecessary time spent processing and tracking and allows businesses to drive better business decisions. Existing customers include Huboo, MediaMarkt Saturn, British Airways, dnata.
“At BotsAndUs, we have created a robot that accelerates productivity, reduces unnecessary time spent processing and tracking and allows businesses to drive better decisions. At the moment, our focus is on how we can enhance Mim (our data Robot) and our platform.”
Mim is a fully autonomous mobile and modular robot that measures, tracks and finds goods at every stage of the process (delivery, storage and picking). Mim collects data in real-time on parcels, pallets and products as they pass through the warehouse and provides information on their conditions, volume and dimensions as well as their locations on the shelves.
The robots navigate among people and machinery, without workflow disruption and continuously map and scan the warehouse. The data is easily accessible or integrated straight into the WMS, so it can be analysed instantly from anywhere and allows teams to obtain full inventory visibility.
“This has been an exciting time for BotsAndUs at IntraLogisteX as we presented the latest version of our autonomous robot, Mim, and its new use cases in warehouse environments. We were pleased to be able to let visitors meet Mim, and see its various features (pallet scanning and shelves scanning).”
Visitors were able to see for themselves the advantages it brings to the table in terms of productivity, stock and order management. “We’re pleased they were able to see our platform as a solution that makes warehouse workers’ workdays easier so they can focus on tasks that truly matter, rather than replacing them from operations.”
