Square orange robots move seamlessly up and down the warehouse floor, fetching shelving units filled with items and delivering them to human packers. At the 2011 Wired Business Conference, Kiva Systems founder Mick Mountz explains the system to an audience that can appreciate its complexity and game-changing aspects. Mountz explains how Kiva employs robotics and complex algorithms to automate the “pick, pack and ship” industry. getAbstract recommends the video to computer geeks, robot enthusiasts, those in the warehousing or shipping business, and anyone intrigued by innovation.
