Pegasus and Xanthus are new warehouse robots released during the Amazon Amazon 2019 (re: MARS) event held in Las Vegas in early June.
Xanthos is a goddess in Greek mythology and Pegasus is a winged horse. Xanthos is thinner than conventional parts and the number of components is reduced to one third. In addition to reducing costs by half, the modules can also be incorporated onto the body to perform a wide range of tasks.
Pegasus is a smaller robot than Xanthos and takes the appropriate form when transporting the load through the upper conveyor belt. According to Amazon, the warehouse in Denver already has 800 units. Five people, including a young female worker without a robotics foundation, are in control. It emphasizes that management is easy. Pegasus deployed 2.41 million km in six months. In addition to Denver in the future, other centers in the Amazon will be sorted out.
Amazon has recently heard that it is gaming a simple task in the warehouse. Outside the warehouse, we are testing a scout, a 6-wheel courier robot, as well as a SunDron. The Amazon system is rapidly evolving from inside and out. For more information, please click here .
