One of the Colony

Robots are concentrating on their own tasks while the controller directs their movements.  The controller is continuously calculating the smartest way to work and will sometimes initiate teamwork where the robots dig together. A robot’s task is immediately replaced by another robot if they get called to the service mezzanine. 

Nerve System

The robots are diagnosing themselves every second and will report back with even the slightest of unexpected data from its nerve system. Much like car light indicators, but with a higher degree of sophistication, you are aware of a maintenance issue and can prevent any system stoppage.


R5 Robots will work 24/7 with control systems always making sure the battery is healthy. Tirelessly they have been working all over the world for over 15 years.

Robots are continuously assigned tasks and will always get the closest task with the shortest route to save time and energy. With energy efficient motors and regenerating power; AutoStore R5 uses about 
100 W - 1/10 of a toaster.
