About the project
Amazon Fulfillment centers must process over a million orders per week. Packaging is the most complex process in order fulfillment, and while automated solutions exist for single-item packages, multi-item packing remains a manual process. Industrial robots could be the answer to automating multi-item packing, and this senior design project aimed to develop a logic system to guide these robots. The team broke the heuristics of the human packing process down into a set of logical steps that form the basis of robot packing algorithms.
