Warehouse Automation Capabilities
Autonomously unload inbound trucks and shipping containers. Stretch quickly identifies cases and places them on a conveyor, moving up to 800 cases per hour. Its mobile base and long reach allow it to work through the full container with ease.
Enable complex depalletizing with intelligent machine learning computer vision. Quickly depalletize and singulate cases, cartons, and trays from single, rainbow, and mixed-SKU pallets.
Build up pallet orders for retailers and e-commerce fulfillment centers. With a small, mobile base, Stretch navigates warehouse aisles to build single and multi-SKU pallets. Pack cases tightly and carefully with Stretch’s contact detection and force control capabilities.
"We’re excited to partner with Boston Dynamics to deploy its best-in-class robotics in our warehouses. The Stretch robot addresses complex industry challenges through flexible automation, which we’ll be able to replicate and scale regionally and globally.”

Go where the work is with mobile robots that can traverse ramps, bumps and cracks, and fit anywhere in the warehouse that a pallet can.
Handle package variability in challenging environments with state-of-the-art vision systems. Detect single SKU or mixed SKU boxes in under a second.
Accurately identify a range of challenging packaging, including highly graphical boxes and shrink-wrapped trays, as well as peripherals like slip sheets and empty pallets.
Take advantage of a custom-designed lightweight arm and a smart-gripper with advanced sensing and controls to handle a variety of package types while operating at high speeds.
