SVT Robotics has launched a platform for warehouses and manufacturing facilities to speed up robotics deployment.
The Softbot platform is designed to facilitate quick integration between enterprise systems, industrial robots and automation technology through a fully agnostic solution.
The company said this will allow businesses to adopt robotics in days or weeks, instead of months and years.
According to SVT, demand for automation is no longer just from warehouses, distribution and e-commerce fulfilment companies, but also from the healthcare industry following the coronavirus pandemic.
A.K. Schultz, co-founder and CEO of SVT Robotics, said: “Covid-19 has reshuffled the supply chain landscape and created additional challenges for companies to keep their employees safe.
“Automation and robotics help reduce contact between humans and boost safety within facilities. We foresee continued growth within the industry.”
