IAM Robotics Launches Person-to-Goods Solution
IAM Robotics’ new person-to-goods solution includes robots, wearables, and software to manage item picking.
From Mobile Robot Guide – June 6, 2023
IAM Robotics recently launched an automated solution to help warehouses with order fulfillment. The new solution leverages the Bolt AMR base, developed previously by the company, and adds a new workflow management system called “Meet Me” to manage the work of all of the warehouse associates and mobile robots. The new robot is called Lumabot.
IAM Robotics said its Meet Me technology coordinates humans and robots as a cohesive system, enabling warehousing, logistics, and manufacturing operations to increase productivity, mitigate operational risk, and scale without adding headcount.
The company has a new management and software development team after restructuring in late 2021 and pivoting away from its mobile manipulation and goods-to-person (P2G) platform called Swift. IAM Robotics decided to go into self-directed “stealth mode” as it pulled the entire fleet of Swift robots from the market and hired a new team of software engineers to develop the enterprise layer of software.
