Flipkart introduces robot based sortation technology

To gain efficiency at its Soukya sortation facility in Bengaluru, domestic e-commerce major Flipkart recently introduced India’s first robot-based sortation technology, automated guided vehicles (AGVs). The new system entails over 100 robots now engaged in sortation exercise clearing as much 5,000 parcels every hour – a significant jump against 450 parcels sorted by humans.

“The throughput which these (robots) are providing is almost 10x of what we would have achieved. These robots talk to each other in real time, whether it is to (prevent) collision or for workload distribution,” Pranav Saxena, Vice-President, Robotics and Automation at Flipkart has been quoted as saying in a news report.
