San Francisco-based robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) start-up Kindred’s new production model robots, called Kindred Sort, are operating in a pilot programme at a Gap warehouse, with expansion plans to help the retailer’s network. The Fanuc-built robots guided by custom software operate with a mix of AI-assisted automation and human piloting.

A group of pilots, typically professional designers, remotely operate the robotic arms from Kindred’s new piloting centre in Toronto using Kindred’s software along with a standard keyboard and 3D mouse, according to US media reports.

The company wants to provide the intelligence from the cloud and then remotely offer human intelligence if needed. Humans at present assist the robots to handle tasks the machine is incapable of performing today and generate data for the whole system to improve in the future. (DS)
