AMRs travel among workers in pick zones, stopping at pick locations where human pickers (directed by voice) pick and put items in the appropriate tote on the AMR. Multiple robots meet each worker, who can remain in a smaller pick area.
AMRs carry products in totes or stowed on moveable shelves to pick-stations where workers pick, scan and place items in totes for shipping.
AMRs function like powered, intelligent picking carts or pallet jacks. The AMRs can carry bigger batches of orders, improving pick density using Jennifer AI to create batches.
Conventional voice-directed pickers using push carts within picking aisles off-load completed totes or cartons at staging locations. Jennifer will notify an available robot to fetch and transport the tote to their next destination.
Robots can perform full-pallet put-away or replenishment moves, replacing people in one of the most travel-intensive activities in the DC. In this case, Jennifer may notify the robot that a let down is needed when a worker calls a slot empty using a voice-directed picking application.
