The webinar will deal with advances in order picking systems. After a brief introduction of the state of the art of order picking systems, the speakers will present the current trends in automation and robotization of warehouses. Some examples will be given highlighting the application area, the potentialities, and challenges of each solution. Some reflections on how Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning can be used to extract information from big-data available from warehouses management systems are given.

It is also known that, despite the developments in automation and robotization, human will still play a central role in warehousing. Thus, the speakers will present the current approaches for human-centered warehouses and how assistive technologies can support operators in such context. Finally, the recent solution (GrabTM) developed by Currence Robotics will be presented as state-of-the-art example of human-centered warehousing robotization. Results included in the webinar come from DigiMAT project (IPN project funded by NFR).
