AutoStore, the Norweigian robotics company, recently established a new testing facility that replicates a range of environmental conditions found in stores and warehouses.
This testing center will put its micro-fulfillment technology to the test and determine how its robots will perform in hot and cold situations and subject equipment to simulated earthquakes.
“Within the robotic technology industry, we do not have time to let the processes drag on,” AutoStore CEO Karl Johan Lier said in a statement. “As a technology company, we must identify needs, and together with our partners and customers develop good solutions that can work immediately.
We live in a time of exponential development in most areas, and then we must be able to develop solutions that are not outdated when they are used.”
