This is the world's first terminal distribution group robot system solution. For the first time, it realizes the unmanned distribution process covering the seven stages of “receiving-temporary-sorting-delivery-delivery-feedback-return”.

In 2019, it might be really a robot to send a takeaway into your office!

On January 16th, YOGO Robot launched the new product YOGO Station intelligent distribution station in Shanghai Zhangjiang Kehai Building with the theme of “Smart Terminal Efficient Logistics”. This is the world's first terminal distribution group robot system solution. For the first time, it realizes the unmanned distribution process covering the seven stages of “receiving-temporary-sorting-delivery-delivery-feedback-return”.

Zhao Ming, founder of YOGO Robot, said, "The value of the robot itself depends on how it helps the entire industry to reduce costs and increase efficiency. Single robots can only solve one part of the industry; we hope this release The YOGO Station intelligent distribution station as a system can help the distribution terminal to reduce costs and increase efficiency and optimize the service quality of the whole industry."

At this media meeting, the parties in the terminal distribution intelligent industry Downstream partners gathered together. Yuan Tao, chairman of Zhangjiang Group, Ren Fei, head of the π business unit, Zhao Jie, head of the intelligent robot theme group of the national “863” program, and Cai Xiaotong, co-founder of YOGO Robot, unveiled YOGO Station and witnessed the world’s first The release of intelligent delivery solutions for group robots.

In the interactive session, two black and white robots shuttled freely in the “maze” to present exquisite refreshments to the media present, demonstrating their powerful route identification planning and mobility, as well as excellent people. Machine interaction system.

covers all aspects and solves the pain points in the terminal distribution industry

In fact, there are cases in real life that rely on robots to deliver items. YOGO's single intelligent distribution robot is the first product in China to enter the logistics and property industry for deep testing and landing. In two years, YOGORobot has accumulated a deep understanding of the industry and has thus driven its ongoing iteration of terminal delivery solutions.

In recent years, China's logistics industry has developed at a high speed. According to survey statistics, the terminal distribution link occupies 30%-40% of the total time of the distributors, which has great room for improvement. However, the single robot can only solve one part of the industry, and at the same time increase the difficulty of docking the front and rear ends. In fact, its efficiency is very limited.

YOGO Robot captured this key point and launched YOGO Station. It realizes the upgrade of throughput through the joint operation of cloud, intelligent storage sorting cabinet, distribution robot and IOT equipment. Through site docking and multi-machine collaboration, it has completed the transition from single delivery to comprehensive delivery of the site. For B-side cost reduction and efficiency.

Among them, the cloud is like the human brain, responsible for the scheduling of the entire system. After the distribution robot automatically docks with the intelligent storage sorting cabinet to receive the items, it uses the multi-layer intelligent planning to detect the optimal path to the target location in real time. The IOT equipment is the core of the obstacles in the whole distribution process. Its existence enables the distribution robot to control the elevators, gates, electric gates and other equipment autonomously, and finally can move autonomously in the building.

YOGO Station test results show that it can reduce the average delivery time of 10-15 minutes per order for the delivery staff (upline delivery or waiting for delivery), which is 30% of the single delivery time, making the delivery staff 50% of the single quantity can be delivered in one day. Its scale of use will not only solve the problem of capacity, but also improve the service efficiency of the entire outsourcing industry. On the other hand, YOGO Station can also help the property solve the management problems of entry and exit of outsiders.

Three major technical highlights accelerate the commercialization process

YOGO Robot has the rare robotic full link development capability in the industry. The design, structure, electronics, algorithms, cloud and other technologies involved in this YOGO Station are self-developed. Founder Zhao Ming, a top robot algorithm expert, YOGO Robot's core algorithm is derived from the technical accumulation of the lunar rover, and also laid the foundation for the three technical highlights of YOGO Station.

First, the same level of docking with the space stationdegree. The YOGO R&D team draws on the docking technology in the aviation field to realize the fully automated and precise docking of the intelligent storage sorting cabinet and the distribution robot, and achieves the multi-system millimeter-level docking. On the basis of information docking, the multi-link of material transfer is opened. Unmanned dynamic docking has set a precedent in the industry.

Second, surpassing the athlete's 10 times reaction speed. Through the integration of multiple sensors and multi-MCU response mechanism, the distribution robot can achieve a response speed of 0.01 seconds, ensuring the ability to respond to environmental emergencies at high speeds, and greatly improving safety performance. The average person's reaction speed is 0.4 seconds in the same situation, and the athlete can only reach the reaction speed of 0.1 second at the fastest. The moving speed of the delivery robot can reach 2.5m/s in the room at the fastest, which exceeds the walking speed of normal people.

Third, low hardware cost and high computing efficiency. Unlike most companies in the industry that use Intel X86 chips and open source ROS systems as development platforms, YOGO Robot has a computing power of only X86 with powerful communication, algorithms, and operating system full-link self-research capabilities. One of the embedded core algorithms on the ARM core chip not only achieves the positioning and navigation capability to reach the top level of the industry, but also greatly reduces the cost threshold of the product.

The three technical highlights correspond to the three key words of YOGO Station's future commercial application - efficiency, safety and cost. Previously, YOGO took the lead in obtaining enterprise orders and started on-site testing. A number of products have accumulated more than 4,000 hours of work at terminals such as Shanghai Hongqiao Vanke and Guotou Building.

Creating a transmission network for smart cities

Many people think that "terminal distribution" is a market segment. In fact, in the current era, when we no longer use functions as a label to divide buildings into hospitals, shopping malls, and office buildings, each building can be understood as a distribution terminal. In fact, as long as it is "send something", regardless of the external environment, there will eventually be a need for "the last 100 meters in the room", which is almost the application coverage of the entire scene.

China's express delivery and take-out industry ushered in high-speed growth (30%+ CGAR) under high base (30 billion pieces/year, 4000w single/day). On the day of the double eleven last year, the logistics package broke through the 1 billion mark, roughlyWhen it comes to the 20-day logistics volume in the United States. Alibaba said that the 1 billion level will become the norm in the near future. Faced with the huge manpower gap in the field of terminal logistics, improving the intelligent level of terminal distribution has become the “just-needed” of major logistics platforms.

The world is essentially fluid, and the trend in business or technology is how people, matter and information flow more efficiently. The industrial revolution has made people change their cars. The computer revolution has revolutionized the transmission of information. Every technological change will trigger the butterfly effect of moving in different fields. Compared with the movement of information and people, there is still a lot of room for intelligence in the movement of matter.

YOGO Robot is committed to continuously improving the automation of the terminal distribution industry through robotic system solutions, thus realizing the cost reduction and efficiency of terminal distribution. By iterating through the real scenes, we can find the deeper needs of users and make intelligent material delivery tools an infrastructure to make cities smarter.
