The HoloLens helps to improve efficiency in warehouses. Order picking targets are easily met, barcodes are scanned in the blink of an eye, and computer vision technology prevents you from ever dispatching the wrong product again.
When working in large warehouses, order picking can be hard, especially when targets have to be met. The HoloLens guides you through your order picking process from A to Z. To start, the device visualizes a list of items that need to be collected. This can be visualized with text (the product names, numbers), images of the products, or a combination of both. Next, thanks to spatial mapping and spatial awareness, the HoloLens guides you – for instance with holographic arrows projected on the floor – to all the items on your list in the most convenient way. When arriving at the right aisle and row, the HoloLens lights up the product you need. Not only will this help experienced workers, it also allows seasonal workers to be up and running from day one.
Instead of manually having to scan every barcode, you can now use the HoloLens for instant barcode scanning. By simply looking at the different products, the HoloLens instantaneously detects and reads all barcodes, highlighting the ones you need.
As the HoloLens is equipped with multiple smart cameras, this portable smartglasses device can leverage computer vision technology to optimize your day-to-day activities. Here are a few examples of how computer vision can improve efficiency and minimize the error rate:
