China’s biggest automated guided vehicles factory

Hundreds of automated guided vehicles pick up products with high speed in a warehouse in Huiyang, Guangdong Province.

These robots are able to work collaboratively, helping Alibaba’s Tmall sort out orders.

They can carry goods that are as heavy as 250 kilograms…

…communicate with one another to avoid collision…

…and rotate agilely.

They can also deliver products to humans…

… and recharge themselves when their batteries are running low.

After finishing tasks, the robots then return to their designated spots.
