Autonomous Sorting demo video

Over the last months we made a lot of progress on Autonomous Sorting, sorting of parcels with mobile robots.

In the course of this year we will go into a first operational environment with approximately 40 robots. In the coming months, we will be fine tuning the autonomous system here in Delft and that’s where we like to invite you because we think it’s a great opportunity to see the system actually work and to discuss possibilities with you.

So, if you are interested in a demo, please contact us and it would be great to see you over the coming months.
