Analyst Perspective:

With the increasing consumer expectations, the market players are focusing on investing in IT and operational functions in warehouses. There is growing development in connectivity technology globally, as tech companies make everything from sortation to arranging. They are leveraging the latest supply chain technology and the Internet of Things (IoT). Smart warehouses serve as a hub to enhance the efficiency and speed of the supply chain process. From wearables on workers to sensors and smart equipment, internet-enabled devices and technology can profoundly change logistics management. Warehouse and transport management are proactively adopting logistics automation robots, which automate the storing and moving of goods across the supply chain. The logistics automation market trends include the integration of autonomous trucks and truck platooning.

The logistics automation robots are integrated across warehouses and storage facilities to organize and transport products. These robots also offer enhanced levels of uptime compared to manual labor, which leads to the growth in productivity and profitability of the industry. The prime application of logistics robots is mobile automated guided vehicles (AGVs) deployed in storage facilities and warehouses for transporting goods. They operate in predefined pathways for shipping and storing the products in different pallets in the warehouses. AGVs help reduce the overall logistics cost and streamline the supply chain efficiently. Therefore, the increasing utilization of robotics in warehouses is likely to have a significant impact on the logistics automation market forecast in the next few years.  

Logistics Automation Market Overview:

In the logistics automation market, the importance of autonomous cars in the logistics business has grown in recent years as they have increasingly been deployed in precisely controlled environments such as warehouses and yards. However, deploying autonomous vehicles in shared and public locations, such as highways and city streets, might be the industry's next great step in optimizing logistics operations and increasing safety. The expanding technological developments in AI, as well as the increasing substantial investments in the development of sensors and visual technologies, can assist in self-driving vehicles. Autonomous vehicles and drones are important components of automated logistics systems. Google and Tesla, for example, have made substantial advances in driverless vehicle technologies.

Autonomous driving has progressed from science fiction to a very feasible possibility in the last two decades, owing to significant advances in radar technology and computer power. Because portable technology has improved sufficiently to allow ultra-light hardware to make decisions based on self-improving algorithms, engineers have a better chance of mimicking human decision-making in autonomous vehicles.

Many developing countries are implementing autonomous vehicles and drones. For instance, Minus Zero, a Bengaluru-based artificial intelligence (AI) start-up, has presented India's first driverless vehicle. According to the company, the fully electric prototype named zPod, which is based on a camera-sensor suite, can drive all environmental limits and can expand up to Level 5 autonomy capabilities. The greatest level of autonomous driving is Level 5, in which a vehicle is entirely capable of running without human intervention in all driving circumstances and environments.
