Fetch Robotics

The future of distribution will likely feature humans collaborating with robots at all points in the process, and Fetch Robotics gets it. The company makes collaborative autonomous mobile robots, or AMRs, for handling materials and collecting data in warehouses, distribution centers, and factories. Fetch says AMRs are more advanced than traditional warehouse vehicles thanks to a glut of sensors and a powerful onboard computer that lets it navigate spaces dynamically, rather than being limited to a fixed route. The goal is to integrate the robots in a way that creates a frictionless environment for the humans that work alongside them. In 2018, Fetch expanded their product line to include two new sizes of their AMR (the Freight500 and Freight1500), and introduced new modules for the AMRs that attach to the AMR base.
