Amazon Web Services (AWS)is helping Indian robotics company Addverb improve the efficiency of its warehouse automation technology.

The partnership with AWS will allow Addverb to leverage its cloud platform’s machine learning, analytics and IoT connectivity capabilities to enhance the capabilities of its robotics.

In response to the increasing disruptions and delays faced by the global supply chain, Addverb wants to meet the growing demand for faster and more efficient service. Through its collaboration with AWS, Addverb can now test and deploy hardware and software up to 50% faster than before, a game-changer in expediting services and reducing supply chain interruptions.

“As part of our unwavering commitment to innovation, Addverb sought a solution to expand our software and hardware innovations without the need for a complete architectural overhaul,” said Sriram Sridhar, chief revenue officer at Addverb. “AWS emerged as the clear choice due to its seamless integration capabilities with our existing infrastructure. AWS’s cloud services have not only enhanced our operational efficiency but also minimised downtime, ultimately delivering greater value to our esteemed customers.”

Using AWS services, Addverb shortened its development cycle from three to six months down to two to three months. AWS’s analytics tools provided more accurate testing environments through warehouse simulations, helping developers analyse data and optimise operations in real time. Addverb also leveraged AWS’s security and reliability features to improve data privacy and reduce the risk of downtime, resulting in increased efficiency, reduced costs and improved customer satisfaction.

Addverb is using AWS’s suite of services, with an emphasis on RoboMaker and IoT Greengrass. RoboMaker empowers developers to run test templates and log software events, resulting in enhanced evaluation and reporting and an 80% reduction in testing time. Meanwhile, IoT Greengrass has enabled Addverb to leverage shipping containers for expedited robot delivery and real-time remote monitoring.

“By harnessing the power of AWS, we have laid a concrete infrastructure that will soon enable us to deliver robots as a service,” said Kathi Raja Ravindra, leader of Addverb’s cloud devops team. “AWS seamlessly integrates with the tools that have made our existing development process reliable and robust.”

Founded in 2016, Addverb offers AI-enabled fixed and flexible automation. Its AI- driven software is designed to serve the global ecommerce, warehouse distribution and manufacturing industries. The technology company has headquarters in India, North America, Netherlands and Singapore.
