Agility Robotics, the creator of the bipedal robot Digit, is opening a manufacturing plant in Salem, Oregon that will give the company the capacity to produce more than 10,000 humanoid robots a year. The 70,000 square foot factory coined RoboFab is set to open later this year and will employ upwards of 500 workers in Salem.Agility Robotics says its facility will also employ its very own Digits, the iconic humanoid robot, in the new factory. The Digits will help move, load and unload warehouse goods.The company says some customers can expect delivery of the first Digits in 2024, with general market availability in 2025. In a statement, Damion Shelton, Agility Robotics co-founder and CEO says that the ultimate goal of creating Digits is to Solve difficult problems in todays workforce like injuries, burnout, high turnover and unfillable labor gaps.The manufacturing of bipedal robots is something we have seen teased by competitors like Boston Dynamics Atlas and Teslas Optimus robot prototype. However, none have matured to the extent of being able to churn out thousands of robots like that being seen in this effort by Agility Robotics. Still, until these robots are actually in production, it's too soon to say if Agility Robotics warehouse robots, which are designed to fill a gap in the logistics and distribution industry, will actually surpass its competitors in this newly burgeoning market.This article originally appeared on Engadget at https://www.engadget.com/agility-robotics-is-building-its-first-bipedal-robot-factory-in-oregon-184436386.html?src=rss
