Smart Robotics Arrives at DHL’s Asia Center


Big news from OSARO!

Today, OSARO, Geek+, and Yaskawa, proudly announced that they are bringing the future of automation to DHL’s new Singapore Innovation Center. DHL’s “Warehouse of the Future” will demonstrate a Geek+ Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR), working with an OSARO-powered collaborative robot arm to provide fully automated e-commerce logistics processes. Two robots working together.

For order fulfillment, the Geek+ RoboShuttle® autonomously finds the tote containing ordered items, picks the tote, and carries it to a picking station. At the picking station, the OSARO smart robotics software working with a Yaskawa Motoman HC10DT collaborative robot arm, picks items from the tote, packs the order, and prepares it for outbound delivery.

Operational performance is displayed on dashboards throughout the entire process, providing visitors with the information needed to view in real-time the improvements that robotics automation can bring to the world of logistics–efficiency, accuracy, and flexibility. 

The project represents the joint commitment of DHL, Geek+, OSARO, and Yaskawa to accelerate innovation and educate supply chain leaders on the opportunities that come with robotics automation. 

The accelerated rise of e-commerce and new challenges posed by the global pandemic have fueled intense interest in the capabilities that AI and robotics-enabled automation can provide for building operational resilience.

“We’re excited to demonstrate robots working together, each optimized as part of a complete automation solution. The combination of the Geek+ RoboShuttle® and our exceptional smart robotics pick-and-place capabilities reduces labor-intensive operations. Together, we deliver a continuously-supported, flexible, scalable solution without fixed infrastructure.”

Derik Pridmore, CEO of OSARO
