The Future of Autonomy is in Warehouses

The Future of Autonomy is in Warehouses

(New York)

There is currently a great deal of hype surrounding the self-driving car market. The belief in forthcoming self-driving cars is currently disrupting the auto industry and seeing Silicon Valley become the capital of cars instead of Detroit. However, this Bloomberg article argues that the real future of autonomous vehicles may very well be in forklifts and other industrial equipment. This space is reportedly flying under the radar, but growing quickly, as automated service equipment has a potentially large market and has very good economics for both producers of the equipment and buyers.

FINSUM : The potential here seems massive. Beyond just forklifts and warehousing equipment, imagine all the luggage shuttles at the airports and the myriad other similar systems. Probably not good for workers and unions, but it is a big market.
