Kiva Systems ~ Robots Transforming Warehouses

Thanks to MIT alum entrepreneur Patrick Sobalvarro from Heartland Robotics for a pointer to this nice Wired post Autonomous Robots Invade Retail Warehouses by Alexis Madrigal. Madrigal writes how robots are transforming the logistics arena as you can see with this case study of the Kiva Systems deployment at shoe-co Zappos... As Scott Kirsner of Innovation Economy notes, Kiva, Heartland, iRobot and a growing number of firms are part of the blossoming robotics cluster in the New England region.
