The Brightpick Solution

Brightpick offers a unique robotic solution that automates every step of the fulfillment process, from picking to consolidating and dispatching orders. The standout feature of their technology is the Brightpick AutoPicker, the only mobile robot that can pick items directly from warehouse aisles, mimicking the efficiency of a human picker.

Brightpick AutoPicker: A Revolution in Order Picking

Brightpick AutoPicker recently won the Best Product Award at LogiMAT 2024. This easy-to-install mobile robot fully automates order picking and replenishment, eliminating picking errors, reducing fulfillment costs, and accelerating order processing. 

The features are:

  • Order Picking Reimagined: Brightpick AutoPicker’s patented two-tote design retrieves storage totes from shelving and robotically picks items into an order tote. Unlike other fulfillment robots, it doesn’t need to return to centralized picking stations, which speeds up the process and increases throughput.
  • Build it Like Lego: The robots work with standard shelving and totes, enabling fast deployment and easy integration into any warehouse environment, including existing facilities and mezzanines. They use LiDAR for navigation, eliminating the need for special flooring, fencing, or guidance systems.
  • Maximize Efficiency: Using advanced AI (Artificial Intelligence) algorithms trained on over 500 million picks, the AutoPicker reliably picks various items, from groceries to electronics, and continues to improve with each pick. This in-aisle robotic picking minimizes human errors and maximizes labor efficiency.
  • Goods-to-Person Capabilities: For heavy or oddly shaped items, AutoPicker autonomously finds the nearest human picking station. It can also perform tasks like pallet picking, stock replenishment, dynamic slotting, order consolidation, buffering, and dispatch.

Brightpick Intuition: The Brain Behind the Operations

Brightpick Intuition software manages and optimizes the entire robot fleet and fulfillment process. It integrates seamlessly with your WMS (Warehouse Management System) or ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system, acting as a digital twin of your warehouse. This software provides real-time monitoring and analytics, ensuring maximum efficiency and throughput.
