Warehouse Automation Technology for Efficient Picking and Packing

Benefits of Augmented Reality in Logistics & Warehousing

Warehouse automation technology is revolutionizing the logistics and warehousing industry by making manual processes more efficient and accurate. One type of warehouse automation technology that has gained traction in recent years is augmented reality (AR), which superimposes digital information onto the physical world to enhance worker productivity.

Explore how LightGuide’s projected augmented reality (AR) technology can be used to improve the efficiency and accuracy of sorting, picking, and packing operations by empowering warehouse workers with real-time visual guidance.

In this application, LightGuide supports warehouse automation by providing visual guidance through a ceiling-mounted spotlight, also known as SpotGuide, to help warehouse workers locate bins and fulfill orders with the correct items.

The ProGlove barcode scanner seamlessly integrates with LightGuide, allowing for real-time tracking of operator progress through a part queue. This streamlines picking and packing processes by reducing non-value-added activities and optimizing workflows that may be time-consuming for employees.

Designed for warehousing and logistics applications, SpotGuide can illuminate expansive areas from multiple angles by swiveling its projection head. Multiple SpotGuides can be connected to cover even larger surface areas, such as entire warehouses or shipping and receiving bays.

By augmenting human capabilities with real-time information and guidance, LightGuide AR is enabling warehouse workers to perform tasks faster, with fewer errors, and greater safety.
