AI-enabled robotic picker

22 May 2023

ABB Robotics has launched the Robotic Item Picker – a new artificial intelligence (AI) and vision-based solution designed to detect and pick items in unstructured environments in warehouses and fulfilment centers.

Using machine vision and AI, the Item Picker determines the optimal grasp points for each item before the suction gripper picks up and places the item into designated bins. The system does not require any human supervision or information about the physical attributes of the items it picks. It has a picking rate of up to 1,400 items per hour. 

Featuring a robot, suction grippers, and proprietary machine vision software, the Robotic Item Picker automates complex picking and placing tasks of a range of items including cuboids, cylinders, pouches, boxes, polybags, and blister packs, which otherwise require the dexterity and flexibility of humans. 

Suitable for a range of loads and applications, the Robotic Item Picker can be fitted to one of three ABB robots - the IRB1200, IRB 1300, and IRB 2600, with a payload of up to 3kg and a reach of up to 1.65m.
