According to Cutler, AI (artificial intelligence) and Deep Learning will be on the factory floors worldwide by 2030, but for many small and midsized manufacturers working to cope with COVID consequences, replacing a manned forklift with an autonomous forklift allows for a “baby step” into the future state while adhering to the imminent demands of social distancing. Getting decision-makers in SMEs (Small and Mid-size Enterprises) to start with a single autonomous forklift is the first step in the process; the operations and facility managers understand that a single autonomous forklift is actually a good thing to improve quality, eliminate waste, and reduce costs. Many SME manufacturers are replacing one single manned forklift with one autonomous forklift. 

Jensen shared, “With nearly half of manufacturers testing single autonomous forklifts during COVID to adhere to strict social distancing, the benefits become obvious.”
