Norway’s AutoStore unveils next-gen electric warehouse robot

Norwegian tech company AutoStore today unveiled the latest version of its warehouse storage and retrieval robot, as it seeks to boost the efficiency of its automated fulfilment system. 

Dubbed the P5 Pro, the electric cube-shaped robot is fitted with next-gen lithium titanium oxide batteries. The company says this allows the little robotic workers to toil harder and longer. The improved battery technology also enables AutoStore’s customers to cut the number of charging points in their warehouses by 85%, boosting storage capacity.

“Retailers are constantly looking for new ways to adapt to rising customer demand for more, faster delivery of goods. These more efficient robots can help them fulfil this need,” Carlos Fernandez, the company’s chief product officer, told TNW.
