Robotic technology specialist, Geek+ is opening a new research and development centre in Hong Kong.
The research site will facilitate the company’s dedication to developing artificial intelligence and robotics technologies for the international logistics industry in Hong Kong.
The site will host a variety of automation technologies for efficient and safe logistics processes in warehousing and manufacturing, including the company’s goods-to-person picking system which uses autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) to help organise warehouse inventory.
The automated warehouse management system helps to improve picking accuracy by 300% compared to manual systems, according to Geek+.
Lit Fung, VP and Managing Director of APAC, UK, and the Americas said: “Geek+ chose the Science Park as the location for its new R&D centre as it is the beating heart of Hong Kong’s innovation and technology ecosystem, a city whose strategic location at the heart of Asia and status as a trading hub and high-skilled talent pool, is of great importance to the company’s R&D efforts.”
Albert Wong, CEO at HKSTP, says: “We are excited to have another unicorn join the Science Park’s vibrant ecosystem. The presence of Geek+ is a strong testimony to Hong Kong’s competitive edge in AIR.”
