India’s GreyOrange Offers Warehouse Automation

Engineers Samay Kohli and his colleague Akash Gupta have created GreyOrange a robotics supplier whose products support online retailing not only in India, but internationally too. Based in Gurgaon, India, GreyOrange says it has 90% of the warehouse automation market in India, and it works with leading e-commerce and logistics firms in the country, reports the BBC. The company has eight offices in five countries and employs more than 650 people.

GreyOrange has two kinds of robots that help warehouses become more productive: Butler, an artificial intelligence-powered robotic system, can pick products from shelves in the warehouse. ”A single person would pick about 100 to 120 items in one hour. With our Butler robot, he is able to pick 400 to 500 items every hour,” Kohli says.

Sorter, automates the sorting of outgoing packages in a distribution center, and the pair of robots can potentially sort three million packages every day. The founders say, “It’s [AI] a trillion-dollar opportunity, that’s the space we’re fighting in.”
