How Robots Are Changing Modern Commerce and Reducing Carbon Output Through Warehouse Design: A Discussion with Calgary-based Attabotics Founder and CEO, Scott Gravelle

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/aia-international-spring-conference-2022-new-beginnings-embracing-change-tickets-325123441967

Event Description

Scott discusses how warehouse automation can drastically reduce commerce’s carbon footprint (by up to 85%) by repurposing and optimizing obsolete real estate in urban Canadian markets. Converting available property space in high-density areas can lessen last-mile delivery costs and create jobs in areas closer to labor bases. Learn how Attabotics’ geometric single, vertical storage structures reduce warehouse space and pair with the company’s ‘ant’ ethos – not only mimicking the design of ant colonies, but the behavior and function of the ants themselves to deliver a more efficient and eco-conscious fulfillment system.
