The Launch of Cypher’s Inventory Drone from an Autonomous Mobile Robot Base

The halls of Modex this week are lousy with solutions to the problem of inventory. Recent years have given us drone solutions and Dexory’s massive AMR (autonomous mobile robot) with a telescoping scaffolding structure. At its core is a tall (but not Dexory tall) AMR that serves as a launching and landing pad for a drone. You can’t really see it from the image I took, but the drone is actually tethered to the inside of the AMR platform. The Ottawa-based firm says the drone can operate for up to five hours before needing to return to the base for a recharge.
