Robotization of service with goods and products via automatic cabinet

PDF Full Text


Recently, the world has become interested in robotization in the service sector. Night tours of the London Tate gallery were driven by robots. Rather, only humanoids moved around the halls of the museum, and viewers could consider works of art and listen to the explanations of smart guides on the screens of computers. We went even further in South Korea. At the Daegu National Museum, robots collect entire groups of excursionists and conduct them on permanent display. Robots have already tried on the aprons of waiters, stood behind the racks in hotels and settled at airports. BagBot is the first, but not the only, system to automate airport baggage handling. There are others, such as BAGLOAD, using solutions offered by Grenzebach (Germany), which combine classical transport technology with modern robotics. In addition, part of BAGLOAD is the integration system developed by Vanderlande (Netherlands), designed to provide airports, airlines and cargo handling companies with the necessary level of automation of these processes. Automated baggage handling systems developed by Vanderlande move 3.7 billion baggage units per year (or 10.1 million per day) worldwide. These systems operate at 600 airports, including 13 of the top 20 in the world. One example is Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, where the amount of processed luggage grows year by year and in the near future will reach 17 million units per year. In order to cope with this task, a new automated system was introduced here, part of which is robotic manipulators.
