Sensor Solutions for Retailers to Enhance Tote Picking Applications
Once you’ve identified the tote, it is then crucial to have effective methods for picking items from the totes. Various solutions are available to assist with this task, including manual and automated solutions. Objects can be uniquely identified in goods receipt for a target-actual comparison between ordered and actually incoming goods.
This identification is sometimes done manually in trade and distribution centers with low throughput as well as for post-processing of shipments that cannot be processed automatically. Robot-supported bin picking enables retailers to eliminate costly and labor-intensive processes, freeing up workers to complete tasks of greater value.
In this five part blog post series, we’re highlighting five applications for intelligent sensor solutions that contribute to a fast, efficient, and economical supply chain in a series of blog post. In the fourth blog post, we discuss tote picking solutions.
