How robots are unlocking big data in the warehouse

AI-powered robots reveal a wealth of shipping and sorting data that can enable better efficiency. By necessity, robots collect data on every parcel they sort including metrics, timing, data, images, videos, sensor readings, and more. Robots will not only bring modern data architectures to the warehouse, they will drive the innovation of new distributed systems that support hundreds of millions of robotic systems across the globe.
