Why Warehouse Automation Needs Purpose-Built Computer Vision

On the surface, automated depalletizing looks relatively straightforward. A computer vision system identifies a box and then a robotic arm with a gripper lifts the box off a pallet and onto a conveyor belt. However, solving carton location and path planning to successfully unpack a pallet requires highly advanced perception and intelligent vision processing algorithms.

Even as social distancing restrictions lift, e-commerce adoption rates continue to rise dramatically, highlighting the need for ongoing solutions to fulfillment, shipping, and delivery challenges. The warehousing industry is primed for an automation boom to support this new landscape.
