Amazon Debuts New Robotic Assistant
Amazon recently debuted a new robot to assist warehouse workers with some of the more tedious aspects of the job. The company unveiled “Sparrow,” a robotic arm that can pluck items of varying shapes and sizes using computer vision and artificial intelligence. Previous iterations of robotic arms have been able to pick up boxes, but Sparrow is capable of handling items with varying curvature and size with the help of suction cups.
Sparrow can identify around 65% of Amazon’s product inventory, the company said. The robotic arm will take on repetitive tasks, freeing employees up to focus on other things and can also improve safety in the workplace.
