Wise Robotics is partnering with VisionNav to bring greater innovation to UK warehouses.
The collaboration means VisionNav’s innovative technology will be available as part of the Wise Robotics range.
This will help UK operators boost order fulfillment and reduce the ongoing costs associated with running a warehouse in the face of well-documented supply chain challenges.
Set up in 2016 by The University of Hong Kong and The University of Tokyo, VisionNav supplies warehouse robots which use vision-based intelligence to automate materials handling, storage and retrieval.
VisionaNav’s Director of Sales, Europe, Jason Zhang, says the partnership demonstrates the growing range of options for logistics businesses looking to bring automation into their operations.
“The impact of the pandemic has prompted reforms in the logistics and supply chain fields. Faced with labour shortages and sharp increase in health risks, the challenge of the logistics and supply chain system to turn to automation is more urgent than before.
“The flexibility and scalability of the mobile robots are also higher in order to adapt to the changing and diversified market needs and difficulties. This means that highly flexible automatic forklift solutions have a broad application space.”
