Efficient Robotics-enabled Logistics

By Logistics Tech Outlook | Wednesday, November 28, 2018

RoboticsOver the past couple of years, deployment of robots in handling materials and distribution industry is relatively low. The traditional processes of automation are found to be challenging in analyzing complex industrial tasks. Advancement in artificial intelligence and robotics is gaining mainstream attention in digitization and is considered a foundation technology for robotic logistics.  A recent survey conducted by TechNavio’s Global Service on the robotics market has shown that the services obtained from the robotics industry are at a high exponential growth of 16.5 percent through 2018.

In the present dynamic world, the developed robots should be highly efficient and accurate, regardless of their physical appearance. In industrial perspective terms, any machine that is highly intelligent, autonomous, can undergo numerous tasks without the requirement of an external source, and take efficient decisions are considered as an intelligent automated robot.  In the logistic approach, deployment of robotic technology will be initiated from the starting stage of getting orders, packaging, till the delivery of parcel and completion of warehouse cycle. At every stage, robots with peculiar specification will be selected on the basis of work that is to be carried out in dynamic conditions and the control logic can be achieved by embedding advanced automation technologies.

Numerous investigation and studies have been carried out by research associates to predict the futuristic growth of robotic logistics and its potential benefits towards automation. Through the analysis, broader benefits such as enhanced safety, increase in efficiency, and dual-task operation can be achieved along with the planning of transport map with a better road-map condition, better internal communication while exchanging the goods amongst the individual organization during transportation, and minimizing the delivery time by pursuing several tasks at a time. Furthermore, the potential impact may cause unemployment issues and may increase in the upcoming future. The requirement of high skilled labor with knowledge on robotic technology and programming may increase in upcoming days.

Although deployment of robot logistics and automation technology has bought inevitable changes in the industrial framework, some will fear using it due to its limited safety measures. There have been changes by ascertaining these limitation parameters during the development of advanced Robotic Process Automation (RPA). Through this process, higher operating speed along with continuous 24-hour working can be achieved, which makes the robotic logistic process quicker, reliable, and cost-efficient.
