Welcome to Episode 52 of The Robot Report Podcast, which brings conversations with robotics innovators straight to you. Join us each week for discussions with leading roboticists, innovative robotics companies, and other key members of the robotics community.
In this week’s episode, Steve and Mike discuss news from the week, starting with the announcement of Waymo’s expansion of service into San Francisco. Waymo announced that they are starting public rides in their driverless taxi service in San Francisco.
Also, we celebrate the 500Mth pick milestone with Locus Robotics. The company crossed the gap from 400M picks to 500M picks in just 90 days!
The highlight of the show this week is Steve’s conversation with Yaro Tenzer of Right Hand Robotics. Steve and Yaro discuss the capabilities and technology behind RightHand Robotics (RHR) innovative bin-picking solution. RHR developed one of the market leading solutions for debulking and singulation of items for warehouse fulfillment of customer orders. Watch the video below for a view of how the system works.
