Plus One Robotics and Tompkins Robotics announced a partnership to combine Plus One’s 3D and artificial intelligence (AI) software and Tompkins’ tSort system. The result will be a flexible automated picking robot.

“Joining tSort with Plus One’s induction robots is marrying two innovative and cutting-edge robotics solutions that offer end customers expedited and accurate parcel and unit sortation,” Mike Futch, president and CEO of Tompkins, said. “The combined system will provide for greater flexibility not only in warehouses, but in distribution centers as well as restocking in stores.”

The combination of the two companies’ technologies will result in an accurate picking robot that can quickly classify new package shapes and types. The robot will eventually be deployed in e-commerce fulfillment and distribution centers.
