Vecna Robotics’ distinctive warehouse robotics solution was recently featured in Forbes magazine; the article was authored by Steve Banker. Dan Patt, Vecna CEO and Daniel Theobold, Vecna Chief Innovation Officer, highlighted the potential to improve warehousing and order fulfillment.
Vecna offers a spectrum of robots designed for different tasks – each picking, case put or pick, pallet moves, and tuggers for the warehouse yard. In other markets, over time the market starts to move to providers that offer a broader selection of products and just “one throat to choke” if something goes wrong.
Vecna’s second differentiator is that their robots are highly collaborative. Amazon’s Kiva robots, for example, are designed to be operated in a section of the warehouse off limits to humans. Vecna’s robots have vision systems that allow them to navigate safely around humans and share common transit paths. Their robots can also collaborate with other robots. For example, a case pick robot might place a case on an AGV style robot that would then transport the case to a pallet build station.
While Vecna has been around since 1998, Vecna’s warehouse robots have only been generally available since last April. As the technology and market matured, Vecna decided to spin out a robotics business to focus on the promising logistics solutions marketplace. They have invested tens of millions in R&D into robotics, have over a hundred issued and pending patents. Vecna’s early implementations have convinced large companies to expedite scaling of their robots to enterprise operations.
