Gather AI, a company co-founded by an award-winning team of three robotics engineers from Carnegie Mellon University with a combined experience of 25 years in developing autonomous flying vehicles are disrupting the supply chain industry. We have developed the world’s first software-only inventory monitoring fleet of drones. Gather’s RaaS (robotics-as-a-service solution) consists of indoor flying drones, our proprietary autonomy engine, and a rich analytics and management software suite. Our clients pay for the platform on a service basis that is 60% cheaper than manual solutions and incurs no upfront costs.
Drones have the agility to reach heights and gather information, equipped with the right sensors they can not only do physical and cycle counts but also measure temperature, volume, humidity and rack conditions. Our drones achieve 10 times faster inventory checks while collecting data that enable metrics like space utilization, SKU mismatches, asset path optimization, further enabling labour productivity improvement.
Even though drones are great data gathering tools deploying them at scale needs them to be fully autonomous, a task made more challenging with tight spaces, lack of GPS and traffic in warehouse facilities. Gather’s proprietary autonomy engine uses cameras to navigate the environment, avoid obstacles, track assets and take inventory enabling completely off-the-shelf drones to deploy autonomously.
Gather’s inventory monitoring drones are able to reduce inventory monitoring drones for a single-aisle from 2 hours, 2 people and a fork-lift to just 8 minutes with no people involved. By extension reducing the inventory monitoring time for the full warehouse from 8-40 hours to just 15 minutes.
