Amazon Pegasus Robots Sort Packages

Amazon is showing off its latest robots in use at its sorting center in Denver, Colorado. Their orange Pegasus robots are 2 feet-high and 3 feet-wide, and are designed specifically to swiftly sort packages and get them on their way. These robots roll on wheels and each of them has a tiny conveyor belt on top.

Here’s a brief description of how these orange bots work: “It rolls up to a station where an associate on the other side of a barrier fence scans a package, places it on the robot, and off it goes – navigating a “robot highway” inside the Denver sortation center. On-board cameras sense any surprise obstacles as the unit follows its programmed journey to an eject station. The conveyor moves the package off the unit and down the chute where it’s then readied for delivery. The robot completes its entire journey in roughly two minutes.”

Amazon’s Denver location started using the robots in October 2018, and since then, they have traveled over 1.5 million miles combined. Other sorting centers in the U.S. will get Pegasus robots later this year. The zippy little robots seem pretty efficient at their jobs.
