Warehouse the size of five football pitches in China is the first in the world to be run exclusively by ROBOTS and offers a glimpse into the future of manufacturing
Mujin, a start-up from the University of Tokyo, is developing this technology in the hope of achieving full automation.
It received widespread attention in June when it partnered with Chinese manufacturer JD.com and unveiled its new-era warehouse.
The 40,000-square metre (430,000 square feet) facility in Shanghai is staffed by 20 industrial robots that perform all the duties a human worker would normally be responsible for.
