Datalogic has provided Effidence, a pioneer in collaborative mobile robots, and Manitou Group, world reference in handling, lifting, and earthmoving, with its safety and identification products for their pallet order picking robots.
This partnership opens up very exciting technological developments that look into the near future. “At Datalogic we are convinced that the robotics market is still at its beginning. Today, less than 1% of pallets worldwide are moved by intelligent robots. This statistic is even lower for order picking applications while paradoxically the e-commerce market is exploding. Effidence and Manitou's approach to combine autonomous robots, identification, and traceability in the same solution to digitise and automate this order picking with collaborative robots that interact even more with the pickers to boost their productivity is the solution of the future for logistics 4.0", declares Cosimo Capuzzello, General Manager of the Sensor&Safety and Machine Vision BU at Datalogic.
