Siemens, Universal Robots and Zivid present the next generation solution for internal logistics operations

Siemens, Universal Robots (UR) and Zivid have joined forces to create a groundbreaking solution that streamlines warehouse automation and solves the challenges that constantly arise in internal logistics operations. The three companies have demonstrated the solution at trade shows and events recently, and earlier in April a webinar called “The Next-Generation Solution of Intra-Logistics Fulfillment” was held to showcase the solution.

“We are pleased to collaborate with Universal Robots and Zivid on the introduction of this ground-breaking solution for internal logistics operations,”  said Ignacio Moreno , Business Development Manager at Siemens. “Using the power of advanced vision technology and industry-leading collaborative robotics, SIMATIC Robot Pick AI offers easy picking in any environment.”

The collaboration represents a major step forward in solving the complex challenges facing the logistics and e-commerce sectors. Modern distribution centers are characterized by automated transportation of large quantities and different types of stock keeping units (SKUs), and the new solution is specifically developed to offer the industry a reliable solution for picking these units, regardless of shape, size, opacity or transparency.

“There is huge potential for and significant demand for automation in the distribution center and e-commerce industry. This solution gives our customers the ease of use and integration they expect from working with the leading vision, robotics and detection software vendors” , explains Daniel Friedman , Global Director, Strategic Partnerships at Universal Robots. “The collaboration with Siemens and Zivid is part of our continued commitment to connect our robot platform with AI technology and our commitment to deliver automation solutions to anyone, anywhere.”

The solution consists of the latest cutting-edge technology:

Siemens SIMATIC Robot Pick AI is a pre-learned, deep learning-based vision technology software that enables robots to perform tasks that previously could only be handled manually.

– Universal Robots UR20, with its extended reach and compact design, enables the automation of applications that require lifting heavy objects over longer distances, while maintaining UR’s safety standards (the solution works seamlessly across UR’s cobot family).

– Zivid’s innovative 2+ M130 camera is the first 3D sensor capable of imaging everything, including transparent and semi-transparent objects, increasing accessibility and picking capabilities for e-commerce and distribution center applications.

“By collaborating with Siemens and UR on our 3D vision solution, we offer a robust product that meets the changing needs of the logistics and e-commerce sectors,” explains Amy Landau , Product Marketing Engineer at Zivid. “Our collaboration opens up new opportunities in automating reliable order picking that can truly be made accessible to everyone.”
