OSARO, a provider of advanced robotics for e-commerce, has partnered with Zenni, the online eyewear retail leader, to automate the ‘last meter’ of Zenni’s fulfillment center in Novato, California, OSARO announced. Three OSARO Robotic Bagging Systems will take on the responsibility of readying eyewear orders for shipment to U.S. customers. According to OSARO, this is the first time a robot will be assigned the responsibility of working with an automated mechanical bagging system to ensure a customer’s unique order is placed into the correct bag for shipment. OSARO has partnered with Pregis, a trusted supplier of automated bagging equipment, to meet Zenni’s needs. OSARO explained that its vision and grasping technology enables the robot to rise to the challenge of this particular piece-picking task, which is of importance to Zenni since each eyeglass order is associated with a customer’s prescription.
