Picavi CEO Says Despite More Robots Humans Will Not be Replaced

Carsten Funke, CEO of Picavi USA, the leader in pick-by-vision technology, recently discussed no matter how advance robots become in the industry, human cognitive intelligence will always be required. Read in Manufacturing Report.

According to Funke, “Perhaps the repetitive motions of fork trucks travelling from a dock to workstation can be easily replicated with Automated Guided Vehicles, but the actual nuance of accurate product picking requires both human cognition and picking precision. Based on in-depth data collected over the past three years, we have learned that manual processes still represent seventy percent (70%) of the cost of operating a warehouse.”    

“AR powered Google glasses ensure worker confidence, employee engagement, and job retention, all of which are more important as the hourly wage for warehouse workers, has doubled in the past three years. At these wage levels, the cost of a single mis-pick becomes intolerably unsustainable,” noted Funke.  

Picavi will be exhibiting at the Home Delivery World 2022 Conference from August 31-September 1 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia, PA at booth 635.
