Amazon has patented a 'human transport device' which places employees in cages (5/7)

Amazon has patented ‘System and method for transporting personnel within an active workspace’ which describes a system which lets a human safely navigate and work in a place which is dominated by moving robots.

In layman terms it is a ‘human transport device’, wherein a human stands on top of an automated trolley which is encased by a cage for safety. 

A robotic arm would also be added to the cage, which can be operated by the human inside the cage, to fetch for items and other uses.

Currently on Amazon’s workplace, humans are not allowed to enter where robots are operating.
