Kiva Systems

Copley customer and Infor CloudSuite Industrial (SyteLine) user, Kiva Systems of North Reading, Massachusetts was acquired by Amazon in 2012 for $775 million.  Now, Kiva, which has been operating as a subsidiary of Amazon (Nasdaq: AMZN), is about to be renamed Amazon Robotics.

Until now, Kiva robots were tasked with picking up shelves in Amazon’s giant warehouses and delivering them to warehouse employees at various stations.  But recently, the company has made public its challenge to develop more sophisticated robots that can use computer-vision and machine-learning technology to pick items one at a time and package them, according to a recent article in the MIT Technology Review.

The full article on the Kiva to Amazon Robotics rename and other changes within the organization can be found here.
