Astrid is an AMR (Autonomous Mobile Robot) capable of performing a pallet rack inventory with productivity of 5,000 pallets per hour. It allows sites to do away with fiscal inventories and cycle counts and increases the quality of service and the productivity of forklift drivers. Designed by ID Logistics, this robot will be deployed at a dozen sites in 2023.
The IoT, or Internet of Things, is improving visibility into logistics operations. Connected sensors collect data. They have multiple uses (door opening control, power consumption monitoring, presence sensors, package counting, temperature control, dashboard, etc.). The TOF (Time Of Flight) sensor can, for example, measure the height of a pallet or trigger a replenishment when the minimum stock is reached.
The Locus AMR assists operators in the picking process. Robots move autonomously from one location to another, avoiding long journeys for pickers. With this solution, it is the operator who performs the picking and the robot that moves. This collaborative process improves the productivity and workstation ergonomics.
These AMRs are used to move shelves and pallets between a storage area and fixed picking stations. They allow for denser storage. The number of shelves and robots is scalable, which makes the solution highly flexible.
VR Training is a virtual reality training tool. Learner is immersed in a fun experience that allows them to learn the right gestures in a stimulating and secure environment. Three training modules have already been developed at our sites and more are coming soon.
Tracking by Artificial Intelligence
Thanks to a new visual label technology, the identification codes of the goods are optimized to be read by any camera at long distance. They can be used to track products on the docks or to validate loads.
