Amazon's Worker Robots

Kiva Robots Amazon

Amazon is ramping up production with the help of worker robots. They placed 15,000 Kiva robots in delivery centers in 2014. Each bot is almost 40 cm tall (16 inches) and weighs around 145 kg (320 lbs). They can haul up to 320 kg (700 lbs) of cargo at a time. The worker bots autonomously move around at speeds up to v8 km/h (5 mph). The company plans to have 30,000 Kiva robots working by September 2016.
