Robots Will Soon Populate Warehouses

Warehouse work can be repetitive and dangerous, and more warehouses are now using robots to do many of the tasks that warehouse worker once did. Fetch Robotics has created a new line of robots that work with human warehouse workers to increase productivity and do labor that would be physically challenging for their human counterparts. Jaime Garcia believes that with these robots in the warehouse, humans and robots can walk through the warehouse side by side with the robot taking orders from he human. There are other robots who will soon be able to pick up packages and take them to a shipping robot who will take those packages to a separate shipping area. With these robots in the workforce, some worry that jobs will be lost in the process. However, with robots to so some of the repetitive tasks once done by humans, human workers can be spared repetitive strain injuries that can be caused by them.
