They communicate on a 4G network to avoid bumping into each other. Is this the future of retail?

Unfortunately it's just a beginning. When AI will became better it will take even more people's jobs.Nothing we can do.We humans are like dinosaurs - we are backward and AI will replace us.

For all who saying how this works is simple, underneath the grids are baskets full off products, the Robert travels to a slot on the grid and picks up the product from below, different product have different weight, i.e so in other words a store will order just say 1 tuna tin which weighs 150grams, the Robert will picked this up into it self and move on to the next product on its list for that store, if the product is not picked for what ever reason the Robert will know due to its weight and will attempt to pick it later. For the Robert to do all this it has to be Manuel input in to the Robert system to know which slots to go to pick up products the store are out of stock off

Great video! Robotics are unstoppable in supply chain transformation. But up to 375 million displaced workers may need to switch jobs and learn new skills by 2030 as a result.

+Pranav Jain that's why it's important for children of today prepare for jobs of the future. You don't have a thing to worry about because people like you and I will be dead and gone before robots take over the labor force.
Pranav Jain (11 days ago)
+FiveNine Limited and most of the population works only as a labour, what will happen to them? Not everyone can become an engineer, and will we be able to give jobs to all the engineers ?
Pranav Jain (11 days ago)
+FiveNine Limited jobs of labour is being taken by these robots and with artificial intelligence, robots will be able to engineer, program, built and maintain other robots. Lol... What will be left then?

It takes humans to engineer, program, build, and maintain these robots. Jobs of labor is not the future. Jobs of intelligence and technology is. People need to adapt.

I just long for the day that technology collapses in on itself!.... At the end of the day, when man has replaced humans with robots and devastated the lives of many families because there is no longer work for people to do, companies need to remember, that these damn machines need electricity & 4G signals to even function are they are no good to anyone!... We "Humans" make our own energy and can function perfectly fine without electricity, just sad to see many jobs going away because of "Technology"....

For the keen observer this is an interesting video. You can follow something otherwise seen as boring and draw conclusions on how the flow works.

What a useless video. No editing thought at all. I was waiting to see how the packing was being done and didn’t see anything. Just rolling robots!

DStri pem (15 days ago)
Cool and all but a team of 80 people can do that and twice the amount in 5 days. So this tech isnt there yet. But maybe in 50 years itll be better. But for now humans are the best for packsging.
