Disruptive Robotics at Ocado – from changing the way we shop to changing the world!
Alex Harvey, Ocado
Ocado’s innovation journey has entailed developing some of the most advanced and disruptive robotic systems in the world.
The company’s highly automated warehouses feature the densest storage and retrieval robotic system in the world where thousands of bots collaborate like a swarm to collect customer orders. Two other grand challenges are developing robotic systems that can pick and pack the 54,000 items in the warehouse and that can deliver the groceries from the kerb to the kitchen. This talk will explore how these pioneering technologies, competencies and know-how have the potential to positively disrupt other sectors for wider societal impact.
