Rick Faulk of Locus Robotics talks about automation in eCommerce warehouses using lightweight Locus Bots.



In this episode, Abate De Mey speaks with Rick Faulk, CEO of Locus Robotics, about warehouse automation with collaborative robots. At Locus Robotics, they increase the productivity of workers in e-commerce warehouses by using robot helpers to transport items that are passed to them by the workers.
