Gideon, a robotics and AI solutions provider, has introduced Casey, an autonomous case picking robot.

The Casey solution includes the company’s autonomous mobile robots with a load capacity of 1000 kg, Gideon’s proprietary autonomy software and a simple picking application.

Casey pairs Gideon’s AI & vision-based autonomous mobile robots and optimization software. The company says it eliminates product and equipment damage costs and reduces labour costs by up to 40 percent.

The Casey solution includes the company’s autonomous mobile robots with a load capacity of 1000 kg, powered by Gideon’s proprietary autonomy software and equipped with a simple picking application. The solution also comprises software that optimizes the workflow of people and robots for maximum productivity and enables quick integration with warehouse management systems, and smart devices.

“We are proud to announce the new addition to our product family,” said Josip Ćesić, Gideon CTO and co-founder. “The traditional case picking is an entirely manual process, and it comes with high cost, low safety, and limited scalability. We bring a new way to solve the old problem: enabling people and robots to collaborate closely and create more value by working together in an optimized way.”

It reduces costs and increases throughput and by reducing in-aisle walking, and improving pick rate and accuracy. It provides real-time operations visibility, helping cut unplanned production downtime.
