Quiet Logistics’ Robots at Work

Wired has posted a new video introducing the ecommerce world to a few members of the robotic workforce at the Quiet Logistics order fulfillment center in Devens, Mass. According to the video, the robots, which have names such as Peanut Botter, Botter Rum, Juke Bot, Bot-B-Q, and Walter CaBot IV, require a five minute recharge every hour and have a 99.94% accuracy rate. There are 100 Kiva robots fulfilling 30,000 orders a day, which is an increase from a reported 75 robots just a few months ago.
