keep things as normal as possible.’”  Back to Top Kiva Systems’ Robots are Invading Warehouses

Kiva Systems, one of our favorite customers. was the subject of a recent article in Business Week magazine. Kiva manufactures robotic systems for warehouses. Based on traffic control software developed by Kiva, dozens of robots can simultaneously operate in a warehouse, picking items, and bringing them to stations where orders are consolidated for shipping. The system is also self organizing; it keeps track of frequently picked items and moves them closer to the consolidating areas to reduce transit time. These systems reduce worker fatigue and give the operators the ability to handle more volume, an especially important factor during the holiday shipping season. Congratulations to our friends at Kiva for this most recent recognition.
