AI Use Case

Deploy robots to replace human staff

Robotics can automate many route activities that typically require human actions. This is inevitably a very broad use case and the requirements will vary - from reducing potential physical risk to humans, to maximise process uptime or simply to reduce variable costs. These will drive different configurations of project.
