Impact of Robotics in Product Distribution & Supply Chain

From beginning to end, robotics plays a crucial role in the entire manufacturing process and impacts product distribution as well as the supply chain. These automated systems ensure accuracy in tracking goods throughout the supply chain, providing real-time traceability and accelerating processes at various supply chain stages. Increased automation in the supply chain decreases labor costs, minimizes errors, and optimizes resource utilization, resulting in overall cost reductions. This panel features Shawn Stetson, VP of Engineering at Cyngn, and Yaro Tenzer, Co-Founder of RightHand Robotics, joined by moderator Chris Baker, CBC. Watch the complete session to learn the valuable perspectives of the panelists.

“You have to come in with a system designed to identify personnel and avoid collision. Once you meet that requirement, there is the question of really understanding the jobs and the frequency at which you need to do them and planning the entire system to handle that capacity and how many robots you need to do the work.”

– Shawn Stetson, Cyngn

“What is interesting and exciting for us is that our customers don’t buy the robots, they buy solutions that solve that problem. One of the challenges in the facility is the predictability of how the flow will go, and how many items can be shipped or fulfilled. So, a typical warehouse manager is trying to understand these numbers because more items can ship from a facility, and there can be better warehouse utilization. So, in a way, our robotic solution enables us to give predictability to the facility. So you know the throughput and are making better utilization of the facilities.”
