AI automates AutoStore®

Smart picking in warehouses

With our partner HÖRMANN Logistik, we have combined two complementary technologies: The efficient small parts warehouse AutoStore® was expanded with the pick-by-robot solution from robominds, creating a highly automated storage and order-picking system.
Where manual bin picking used to predominate, modern hardware components together with smart AI skills now take over the order-picking of a wide variety of products. According to the given order products and goods can thus be efficiently and reliably assembled from the entire product range. The unique combination of robobrain®, robotic arm, robobrain.eye and smart AI skills enables the robot to perform a human-like hand-eye-coordination without prior training. Thanks to the pre-trained AI skills, there is no need to teach-in the individual products, what makes the solution time and cost-efficient.
In addition, the flexible solution enables an instant adaptation of processes even with a constantly changing product portfolio. Equipped with AI robotics, the AutoStore® solution is flexibly adaptable to different areas and industries - from pharmaceuticals to food to returns processing. This makes warehouse automation easier and more efficient than ever before.

Thanks to flexible AI skills, which can simply be downloaded to the robobrain®, it is possible to enable a robot to grab and order-pick many different parts from the AutoStore®. Even with a constantly growing or changing product range, new products do not have to be taught individually in the system, as the skills are already pre-trained and thus already cover a wide range of objects. These skills can be used together with an AutoStore®:

Generic partial recognition of small to medium sized objects and differentiation between various products

› Supported grippers: Vacuum, Parallel

› Object types: including boxes, bags, bottles, cans, tubes, etc.

Detection and handling of small to medium-sized parts with vacuum grippers, and analysis of optimal picking points

› Supported grippers: vacuum, a.o. Piab

› Object types: including boxes, bags, bottles, cans, tubes, etc.

Detection and handling of small to medium-sized objects with two-finger grippers, as well as analysis of the best gripping axis for an object

› Supported grippers: Zimmer, OnRobot, Robotiq, Schunk

› Object types: including boxes, bulk objects, etc.

Marker ID recognition, e.g. for position return to a robot, mounted on a mobile platform. This makes it possible to have a mobile robot independently drive to the port of an AutoStore® system and order-pick there.

› Supported marker types: Aruco Marker, April Tags
