Addverb partners with AWS to decrease robot deployment times

Addverb has announced a partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to improve the efficiency of its warehouse automation systems. With the partnership, Addverb has been able to leverage the AWS cloud platform’s learning, analytics, and Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity capabilities to enhance its robotic systems.

With its Amazon collaboration, Addverb said it can now test and deploy hardware and software up to 50% faster than it could before. Addverb said it has shortened its typical development cycles from 3-6 months down to 2-3 months.

This is possible because of AWS’s analytics tools, which provide more accurate testing environments for warehouse simulations. These testing environments help developers analyze data and optimize information in real-time.

“As part of our unwavering commitment to innovation, Addverb sought a solution to expand our software and hardware innovations without the need for a complete architectural overhaul,” Sriram Sridhar, Chief Revenue Officer at Addverb, said. “AWS emerged as the clear choice due to its seamless integration capabilities with our existing infrastructure. AWS’s cloud services have not only enhanced our operational efficiency but also minimized downtime, ultimately delivering greater value to our esteemed customers.”

Addverb is also using AWS’s other suite of services, with an emphasis on RoboMaker and IoT Greengrass. RoboMaker allows developers to run test templates and log software events, resulting in enhanced evaluation and reporting, as well as an 80% reduction in testing time.

IoT Greengrass allows Addverb to leverage shipping containers for expedited robot delivery and real-time remote monitoring.

“By harnessing the power of AWS, we have laid a concrete infrastructure that will soon enable us to deliver robots as a service,” Kathi Raja Ravindra, leader of Addverb’s cloud DevOps team, said. “AWS seamlessly integrates with the tools that have made our existing development process reliable and robust.”

Addverb focuses on creating fully automated warehouses and manufacturing facilities. It works with several industries, including e-commerce, retail and grocery. It offers six robots: a mobile robot, shuttle robot, pallet robot, sorting robot and a UV disinfection robot. It also offers a shuttle-based ASRS system and software to create high-speed robotic fulfillment centers.
