Conditions in the field of logistics have changed in recent years, there are still demanding products made to measure on the market. 20 years ago, cars manufacturers provided three modes of a car series, today it is around ten modes per series. For this reason, production, logistics systems and employees can be increasingly customer oriented. Nowadays, there are opportunities to optimize logistics processes that can be used, so the industry focuses on the development of technologies such as AR.
Warehousing operations are 20% of total logistics costs. Costs estimated for picking of certain items from regular items is 55%-65% of these costs.
‘Pick by paper’, ‘Pick by voice’, ‘Pick by light’ – the processes of picking items from the shelves are still very manual in most warehouses today. These procedures are prone to errors and very slow against modern technologies.
The shortcoming of the above-mentioned technologies can be eliminated by using the AR technology, which is called ‘Pick by vision’. This technology uses mobile AR hardware. These include head-mounted display, camera, micro laptop and battery. AR and its hardware in this case will free hands of pickers, they can work so-called HANDS-FREE.
