We have seen the future of Amazon warehouses, and they’re filled with Boston Dynamics and OTTO Motors robots. The two companies have just released a video showing Boston Dynamics’s logistics robot, Handle, picking up boxes and building pallets on top of OTTO AMRs in a distribution center testbed, showcasing warehouse automation. Read more for the video and additional information.
For those who have never heard of OTTO Motors, they’re a company focused on solving the problem of moving goods in the warehouse through autonomoous mobile robots like the OTTO 1500, providing mission-critical deliveries within a variety of industrial environments.
