Die Roboter in den Lagern von Amazon


Ich hab zwar gewusst, dass Amazon in seinen Lagern, in Neusprech auch „Fulfillment Center“ genannt, Roboter schuften lässt. Aber interessant, das mal im Video zu sehen. Inwieweit das außerhalb der USA schon ähnlich aussieht, kann ich nicht sagen. Wird aber langsam mal Zeit für eine Robo-Gewerkschaft.

Some features of Amazon’s eighth generation fulfillment center include:

Kiva robots of which Amazon currently has more than 15,000 operating across the U.S.;
Robo-Stow, one of Earth’s largest robotic arms moving large quantities of inventory for customer order fulfillment;
New vision systems enabling the unloading and receipt of an entire trailer of inventory in as little as 30 minutes instead of hours; and
New, high-end graphically oriented computer systems for employees to use while fulfilling orders for customers.
Amazon recently announced it will hire 80,000 seasonal employees to fulfill customer orders this holiday, a 14 percent increase over last year. The company expects that thousands of those employees will stay on in regular, full-time roles.
