Unbox Robotics exists to enable logistics players to automate and radically improve their operations on-demand using limited
footprint and capital.
Although the number of parcel deliveries and their delivery locations are growing exponentially, existing parcel sorting systems are difficult to scale-up/down, require huge area, money & installation time. To solve this, Unbox is building an AI-powered Parcel Sorting solution with a swarm of robots that get installed at-least 10X faster in less than 50% of the space required by existing solutions. Swarm Intelligence, ML enabled Intelligent Maps and the overall system improve the robot productivity & reduce the CAPEX by ~40% to 70%. The solution has an international patent pending.
