Mike Mountz–Let the Inventory Walk and Talk (Part 1)
Have you ordered things online? Have you thought about what happens after you make your order? Is it magic? How does your stuff to get to your house?
Well, in this video, Mick Mountz makes the magic disappear and explains how robots move things around the building so workers can stay in one place.
It’s not too hard to understand, but there’s a lot of vocabulary that you might not know. In this lesson, I’ll explain lots of words. They’re all from the first two minutes of the video! That’s be enough for today. In a future lesson, we’ll look at the video in more detail.
