About the session

When robotics and AI come together, amazing things can happen. The connecting of these two worlds, the physical and the digital, has brought about major milestones in smart product development. It is at their intersection where some of today's most exciting technology is being realised. The values of Agile development are playing a major role in enabling us to develop innovative solutions in highly unknown spaces.

In this session, we’ll walk through the tools and approaches we use at Ocado Technology to conceptualise the new products, systems and technology which populate our state-of-the-art robotic warehouses. We’ll look at whether any learnings from agile software development can be applied to hardware product development. Looking ahead at tomorrow, we’ll outline the strategies we use to iterate and improve so we can continue to develop cutting-edge automation products and systems behind the lights-out warehouse of the future.
