Berkshire Grey’s, mobile robotic systems are transforming distribution operations. Our systems utilize mobile robots, powerful orchestration software, and supporting mobile infrastructure to provide a modular, distributed, transport system for sorting orders that is flexible, fast, and accurate. Berkshire Grey mobile robotic systems are completely resilient with no single points of failure and their inherent flexibility and scalability makes them particularly well suited for deployment within existing (brownfield) operations.
Berkshire Grey’s FlexBotTM mobile robots are purpose built to operate in dynamically controlled fleets. The FlexBots are deployed as part of the mobile solution sets. They are not generic AMRs that only provide point-to-point transport. They are intended to move dynamically in ever changing pathways as part of a flexible sortation system for items, packages, and orders. FlexBots are fast and rugged vehicles that make our mobile robotic solutions highly configurable for arbitrary facility layouts and redundant against failures. They can parallelize delivery of items where needed and enable various ordering and scheduling capabilities that traditional conveyor-based systems cannot.
The next generation of Berkshire Grey’s mobile robotic systems achieve new levels of performance and expanded product compatibility. Solutions are significantly more flexible than traditional unit sorters and more rugged than other mobile sortation approaches. AI-enabled machine learning allows our mobile solutions to interpret and adapt to the variability of each customer’s operations providing ongoing throughput optimization. New mobile solutions, as are all Berkshire Grey solutions, will be available via Robots-as-a-Service (RaaS) implementation models, which allow customers to lean forward with innovative technology that serves their customers and improves their businesses without upfront capital expenditures.
