Well, not yet. Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS) are robots for order picking, but many companies cannot afford to implement a fully-robotic solution.
Non-ASRS robots for picking are out there, but many cases they may not work as well as human workers. Robots without AI and the ability to learn can only do what they are programmed to do.
Pickers can take a pick ticket, go to the item location, and if the item is not where it is expected, or if it’s not as indicated on the picklist, pickers can ask questions back up the chain.
AI equipped robots are out there, and can learn, but are still too capital intensive for most businesses to acquire and maintain. However, there are ways to make picking faster and more efficient, as well as more accurate with the next generation of Pick-to-Light.
