Gideon Launches Casey, an Optimized AMR for Case Picking

Gideon Casey 400x275

May 26, 2022

Croatia-based Gideon has announced the launch of Casey, an autonomous case picking and process optimization solution to help companies manage labor shortages and surging demand for products.

The Casey solution pairs Guideon’s flexible, artificial intelligence and vision-based autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) with optimization software. The system “brings people and robots into an intelligent partnership” to help increase throughput and productivity by removing inefficient workflows, costly infrastructure, and scalability bottlenecks. Gideon said the system can eliminate product and equipment damage costs, and reduce labor costs by up to 40%.

“We are proud to announce the new addition to our product family,” said Josip Ćesić, CTO and co-founder of Gideon. “Traditional case picking is an entirely manual process, and it comes with high cost, low safety, and limited scalability. We bring a new way to solve the old problem: enabling people and robots to collaborate closely and create more value by working together in an optimized way.”

The system aims to optimize robot and people workflows, reducing in-aisle walking, and improving pick rate and accuracy. It can also provide real-time operations visibility to help cut unplanned production downtime, the company said. Gideon also said it’s easy to deploy and scale up or down with minimal impacts on any existing infrastructure and workflows.

The solution includes AMRs with a load capacity of up to 1,000 kg (2,200 lbs) powered by Gideon’s proprietary autonomy stack, and equipped with a simple picking application. The system can also optimize the workflow of people and robots, and enables quick integration with warehouse management systems and smart devices.
