Plus One Robotics, a global solutions provider of a vision-enhanced andAI-based parcel handling platform for intralogistics applications announced today that its PickOne induction solution and Yonder remote supervision software have been recognized by DHL’s Logistics Trend Radar 6.0, an established thought leadership publication and strategic tool encompassing major trends impacting the logistics industry.
The Trend Radar lists the PickOne induction solution under Stationary Robots – Robotic Picking andPlacing; deeming it highly relevant and impactful to the future of logistics.Also categorized by DHL under Remote Work & Teleportation,Yonder was recognized for its human-in-the-loop capabilities for remotelyprotecting logistics operations from disruption.
“DHL is a trailblazer for innovative automation solutions in the logistics industry,” said Robert Nilsson, Chief Revenue Officer at Plus OneRobotics. “To have our parcel handling solutions be recognized in theirLogistics Trend Radar as highly impactful to the future of logistics is an honor. We’re committed to improving our solutions every day and value this recognition.”
PickOne’s induction solution uses AI to identify objects for pick-and-place applications. When AI is unable to identify objects, a human teleoperator receives an alert message via Yonder human-in-the-Loop supervisor software and can gain access to and control of the robotic arm from a remote service center. The AI system learns from this intervention to further improve its capabilities if similar situations occur in the future, helping to minimize downtime.
According to the Trend Radar, this AI-human collaboration indicates the potential to create new jobs through widespread implementation of robotic solutions in warehouses and manufacturing environments by upskilling existing labor.
"DHL's Logistics Trend Radar was created to provide a comprehensive overview of the most meaningful innovation in the logistics space with both near term and long term impact, like Plus One Robotics" said Ben Perlson, Senior Innovation Manager at DHL. "I've seen first-hand how PlusOne's PickOne and Yonder solutions can improve operational efficiency and look forward to seeing how they continue to improve the capabilities of these pick and place robotic systems in the years to come."
Plus One Robotics is recognized as the fastest and most reliable parcel handling robotics platform, picking more than 500,000,000 parcels globally, currently an industry-leading metric.
