CommonSense Robotics raises $20 million to help retailers compete with Amazon

Online grocery retailers will be able to offer one hour, on-demand deliveries to consumers at a profitable margin with CommonSense Robotics’ “automated fulfillment as a service” offering. The Telaviv-based startup, which raised its $20 million Series A funding led by Playground Global and participated in by previous investors Aleph VC and Innovation Endeavors, is about to roll out in Israel the first of its urban micro-fulfillment centers focused on the grocery sector. Designed to be in cities within close proximity to consumers, the automated fulfillment hubs will be powered by a proprietary AI/advanced robotics software and human workforce for inventory selection, processing, and dispatch tasks. This will then help in guaranteeing a one-hour, on-demand delivery, especially for quality fresh food items, and improving cost efficiency of the entire supply logistics chain. With its technology, CommonSense Robotics appears well-poised to grow further the numbers for online food grocery shopping. According to Nielsen study, 23% of Americans now buy groceries online and this is seen to grow more than three times in less than a ten-year period.
