One standout example is AutoStore, an Automated Storage and Retrieval System revolutionizing order fulfillment by delivering goods directly to a fixed order picking port, where manual operators pick the items. But what if we took it a step further and turned this into a goods-to-robot system for unparalleled efficiency?
