What’s it really like to work with our warehouse robot, Chuck? We could tell you, but we’d rather show you. Introducing “The magic cart,” a concept video that portrays the benefits of working with Chuck in the warehouse:
Here’s a transcript:
Picker: Ah, this is never going to end.
Chuck: Hey there. Looks like you could use some help. Must be a tough job doing all this work by yourself.
Picker: Uh, who are you and where did you come from?
Chuck: I’m Chuck and I’m here to help. May I?
[Chuck grabs clipboard from Picker and tosses it into a nearby garbage can.]
Chuck: We won’t be needing this anymore. Just follow my lead and we’ll get through these picks in no time.
[Picker motions toward manual cart.]
Chuck: Oh, we can leave that here. Let me do all the heavy lifting.
[Chuck and Picker begin work. In their first stop, Picker grabs wrong item.]
Chuck: Close, but we actually need marshmallows.
[Chuck and Picker head to the next pick.]
Chuck: We need three of these.
[Picker grabs two.]
Chuck: Oops! We need one more.
[Picker hands correct quantity to Chuck.]
[Picker and Chuck complete work.]
Chuck: Looks like we’re all done.
Picker: I can’t believe we finished so quickly. Are you sure you got everything?
Chuck: Positive. Now I need to get these orders out to shipping. But my friend Charlotte will take over for the rest of your route.
Charlotte: Hey! Ready to go?
[Picker turns to Chuck.]
Picker: Hey, thank you for all your help today…
[Picker sees robot Chuck drive off.]
[Picker turns back to Charlotte and sees robot Charlotte drive off screen.]
