Fetch Announces Two New Robots to Warehouse Fulfillment Line

Published by , April 9, 2018 1:24 pm

(TechCrunch)  Fetch has announced a pair of new robots designed remove some of the pain points from warehouse fulfillment. Both are modules that plug onto the top of the company’s VirtualConveyor robot — a kind of large, warehouse Roomba designed two autonomously navigate from point A to point B in a space, while avoiding collisions with people, aisles and dropped objects, in the process. Increasingly automated warehouses are undergoing a staffing crunch, and Fetch offers the promise of humans and robots working peacefully in tandem.
Fetch Robotics capped off 2017 with a $25 million Series B, bringing its total up to $48 million.
