Key features

Order picking and sorting optimization

Smart glasses can scan multiple barcodes from a large distance, even in under-lit areas. Combined with voice commands, this enables logistics and warehouse workers to easily locate or sort through items without having to hold a scanner, phone or tablet in their hands. The smart glasses provide instant feedback on the scanned items, allowing operators to access important information while having both hands free.

Enhanced safety and reduced risk of incidents

By interacting with Bluetooth beacons, smart glasses are able to give a full overview of where items are located in the warehouse. This way, operators can map their entire work environment and keep track of where a pallet, forklift or person is. Not only does this provide information on an item being in the wrong location, but it can also optimize forklift routing and help prevent accidents. Smart glasses can be trained with artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically detect and register incidents or security risks, eliminating time-consuming manual incident reporting and allowing workers to focus fully on the job.

Instant access to information on items or locations

Smart glasses provide instant feedback on scanned items and can recognize specific labels instantly. They enable logistics and warehouse operators to get all information on the item (contained product, inventory, weight, etc.), and help identify if a parcel is in the wrong location. This can be especially important in pharmaceutical or medical warehouses: if misplaced, packages containing medicine that needs to be stored in cool temperatures can instantly be identified and moved to the cooling location. By providing important relevant information instantly, smart glasses make the work of operators easier and reduce errors in the warehouse.

Improved work processes, acceptance procedures and reporting

Instant access to digitized checklists that smart glasses enable, replaces time consuming manual checks for handling labels, damages, shortages, or documents. The step-by-step workflow guidance appears on the heads-up display in the worker’s peripheral vision, allowing them to follow instructions without having to look away from the task at hand. If damage or shortage is detected, the warehouse operator can automatically start a checklist using the smart glasses without having to manually fill in paper-based documents. Damage reports can be created with only voice commands, along with photos for documentation. This results in reduced human error, a safer work environment and faster and more efficient processes.
