Exotec unveils new warehouse automation system with integrated robot

Share this story

A French company called Exotec Solutions has unveiled its warehouse robot, which looks similar to the mobile autonomous vehicles from a number of other companies.

The market for such vehicles has been expanding, at least in terms of the number of companies offering solutions.

It remains to be seen how well they sell, but if Amazon’s heavy utilisation of similar logistics robots is anything to go by, the market is likely to grow fast.

Exotec says its vehicle can carry boxes racked up to 10 metres high, and can move four to five times faster than “the industry standard”, whatever that is. In numbers, it’s 10 mph.

Called Skypod, the new robot was featured on VentureBeat.com, which reports that the French e-commerce company is already using the Exotec robot in its Bordeaux warehouse, to pack and prepare orders.
