AmbiSort from Ambi Robotics

Ambi Robotics showcased its AmbiSort A-Series for the first time at a trade show. In a demo, the system carried and sorted packages into U.S. Postal Service mail sacks.

Jeff Mahler, co-founder and chief technology officer at Ambi Robotics, told Robotics 24/7 that the A-Series system can be used for a range of applications. The robot can sort boxes, polybags, and envelopes from chutes, totes, and bins, according to the company’s website.

Earlier this month, the company signed a deal with OSM Worldwide to deploy the AmbiSort A-Series at several of its warehouses across the U.S.

Last year, Ambi Robotics raised $32 million in funding and signed a $23 million deal with global shipping company Pitney Bowes.

In addition, Covariant highlighted Covariant Brain, its universal AI for picking. In an interview with Robotics 24/7, Ally Lynch, head of marketing at Covariant, said the company sees the platform as its key differentiator.

“We are an AI-first technology company,” she said. “We have one brain that goes across all our use cases.”

Lynch noted that Covariant’s systems can be used for robotic putwalls, induction, goods-to-person picking, kitting, and depalletization.

In addition, Plus One Robotics demonstrated its parcel-handling technology, which includes “Human-in-the-Loop” remote supervisor software. Like some other exhibitors, it offered a virtual reality experience.
