Transforming warehouse cleaning with AI


In the fast-paced world of logistics and e-commerce, warehouses are the lifeblood of efficient supply chains. As the demand for quicker deliveries and higher throughput grows, warehouse managers are constantly seeking innovative solutions to boost productivity, while maintaining a clean, safe working environment.

Enter Tennant‘s T16AMR, the industry’s first industrial autonomous mobile robot, where its innovative AI technology powered by BrainOS and high- performing scrubbing is delivering a lift in cleaning and productivity throughout large warehouse and manufacturing facilities nationwide.

Labor Reallocation and Productivity

Commonly during large space warehouse cleaning, areas are closed up, tasks are halted, and productivity is significantly impacted. Today, AI technology allows autonomous mobile robots to adapt to the required space, allowing employees to remain working with little distractions. Tennant’s T16AMR’s cutting-edge AI technology powered by BrainOS and multiple sensors and cameras enables the machine to navigate dynamically, identifying and skillfully avoiding objects in its path and ensuring employee safety, while they focus on high valuable tasks.

One of the primary stigmas of introducing AI technology throughout operations is that it will replace jobs and in turn staff. However, this is not the case with the T16AMR. Instead, it tackles mundane tasks, allowing employees to focus on high-value tasks such as touch-point cleaning, restocking shelves, facility care, or processing shipments. By reducing the manual labor required for cleaning, managers can allocate their workforce more strategically, improving overall productivity.

Data-driven Insights of Consistent Cleaning

The integration of AI technology in warehouses doesn’t merely offer cleanliness and productivity, however, it delivers invaluable insights into consistent cleaning practices. Demonstrated by the T16AMR Teach and Repeat Model, it allows the machine to meticulously follow a predefined cleaning path customised to the facility to provide consistent efficiency. Additionally, the available eco-H20 NanoClean technology reduces detergent and water usage minimising environmental impact, while ensuring consistent cleaning performance.

For any business owner, data is power in assessing warehouse productivity, costs, and resource allocation. AI technology built into Tennant’s T16AMR continuously analyses data through heat mapping and performance reporting, providing valuable operational efficiency back to the operator. With a centralise system to access all historical data via ROC portal, managers are empowered to make data-driven decisions about cleaning priorities and resource allocation.

As AI technology continues to advance, integrating applications such as Tennant’s T16AMR has never been a smarter decision for manufacturing, warehouse and logistic managers. It not only upholds the highest standards of hygiene but also elevates productivity, ensures employee safety, and provides insightful data on demand to optimise future operations.
