Magazino develops and builds perception-controlled, mobile robots - named TORU - which are designed to navigate freely and dynamically amongst a human workforce - one of the first companies in the world to be doing this.

With Magazino's technology, individual objects are identified on shelves, localised by 2D and 3D cameras, securely grasped, and placed precisely at their desired destination.

The company - which has a workforce of 50 - was established in January 2014 and soon picked up heavy investment from Siemens. Early stage customers include DHL and Sigloch.

The current warehouse picking systems relied on two models; 'Man to Goods' and 'Goods to Man', but Magazino has developed its own, unique, ‘Pick-by-Robot’ solution which continues the evolution of warehouse robotics.
