The GreyMatter™ Fulfillment Operating System uses advanced fulfillment science to instantaneously evaluate order data and compose the best decisions in real-time to efficiently orchestrate people, processes and robots. The result is a fast, agile and precisely tuned operation equipped to perpetually meet the what-when-where expectations of every growing marketplace. GreyMatter rapidly responds to real-time exceptions and events, prescribes actions, and orchestrates integrated and frictionless performance across every node of operation.
GreyMatter™ continuously assesses Distribution Center (DC) performance and deploys intelligent Ranger IL robots to transfer a diverse range of inventory payloads that weigh up to 2,205 pounds—on pallets, racks, cages or trolleys—within a facility. GreyMatter’s mobile-spatial intelligence enables these Ranger robots to operate accident-free, utilizing LiDAR based SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping) to perceive surroundings and select collision-free routes. GreyMatter™ optimises route selection for Ranger IL, which can operate continuously to augment the productivity of the human workforce at the DC.
