Vecna Robotics Wins DHL Dell Robotics Innovation Challenge 2017 with Tote Retrieval System

Vecna Robotics, a leader in intelligent, next-generation, robotic material handling autonomous ground vehicles (AGVs), was awarded first place in the DHL & Dell Robotics Mobile Picking Challenge 2017. The event was held at the DHL Innovation Center in Troisdorf, Germany. The challenge required a mobile robot capable of navigating traditional warehouse shelves, and picking boxes and totes. Vecna Robotics’ Tote Retrieval System (TRS) was not only able to successfully pick the boxes from different levels of the shelf but also was able to place the boxes and totes on its autonomous RC20 Conveyer (20kg) mobile robot.

According to Denis Niezgoda, Robotics Accelerator Lead, DHL Customer Solutions & Innovation, “Vecna’s robots are clearly top-notch, and winning the DHL/Dell Robot challenge was an impressive accomplishment. But what truly impressed me was how great the Vecna team was to work with. We look forward to exploring ways to work together more in the future.”

“As one of the largest technology solution companies in the world, it has been a fantastic opportunity for Dell EMC to co-sponsor this initiative,” Timmy O’Dwyer, Vice President, Global Parts Operations and Limerick Site Leader at Dell EMC. “We believe innovation is at the core of digital transformation, and are proud to be involved in this robotics challenge.”

Daniel Theobald, co-founder and chief innovation officer of Vecna Robotics, praised the collaborative spirit of the event finalists also noting, “This product further extends the capabilities of Vecna Robotics in the material handling and order fulfillment markets…our customers wanted a fully integrated end-to-end automation solution. With the addition of the TRS to Vecna Robotics’ full-spectrum lineup of autonomous pallet, case and piece-handling equipment, we can offer full dock-to-dock autonomous operation in a warehouse without requiring any special infrastructure.”

Manufacturers, retailers and shippers ranging from Fortune 50s to SMEs are turning to Vecna Robotics to move boxes, totes, cases, carts, shelves, bins, dunnage, pallets, and heavy, oversized SKUs. The fleet is integrated with Vecna Robotics’ proprietary and revolutionary IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) monitoring, Remote Assist software.

Vecna Robotics (https://robotics.vecna.com) will be exhibiting and showcasing its AGV and IIoT monitoring technologies at MODEX 2018, April 9-12, in Atlanta, GA (Booth B4987). Follow on Twitter @VecnaLogistics.
