Robots: Warehouse Robots

Posted 14 Oct 2008 at 07:09 UTC by mwaibel Share This

Imagine a warehouse floor with rows upon rows of square, man-high racks. Now add 200 autonomous robots, scurrying about, picking up racks and moving them around. That's Kiva Systems, reinventing the warehouse so workers won't come to find goods but goods move to find workers.

Also in this episode: the second quarter of sci-fi author Jack Graham's "Selkies".
