It is not rare that robots take part in picking products in the warehouse and door-to-door delivery. It is much safer to have your packages delivered to you by robots during the outbreak of COVID-19 epidemic. But at present, the proportion of robot delivery is very slim. Which delivery ways do you prefer? People or robots?
In some campuses in China, packages are delivered to students by logistics robots invented by Alibaba(showed in the following picture), which are very fast and easy to use, highly enhancing the efficiency of door-to-door delivery. Students are very excited and satisfied with the robot delivery.
JD, another Chinese e commerce giant, has opened two robotic stores in the Netherlands, where robotic arms can pick and sort orders. Customers can buy products on app and go to the stores to pick up what they have bought online if they don’t choose the delivery services. Then they scan the barcode on the app at the store, and the conveyer belt will bring their products to them automatically, without any staff. Of course, consumers can choose delivery services, without going to the store to get their items.
The robot delivery is not only used in warehouses and logistics, but also is used in the hospitals in China, especially during the outbreak of the epidemic.
The first industrial robot came into being in 1956, and are only used in industrial manufacturing for a long time due to the safety.
For the lack of workers at the warehouses and ports, I think that robots can greatly improve the operation efficiency. Do you think so?
Robots outweighs human workers in some respects, but robots has its limitations. With the development of the technology, robots can help human beings more to make our world better.
