1. Pallet Tracking in Logistics
In a warehouse, there are many thousands of goods stored over a large area and in high shelves. Frequently, the search for a certain product can take a long time and it sometimes even occurs that certain goods can no longer be found. These issues result in costly process delays.
A tracking solution based on UWB enables precise positioning in three-dimensional space. In this way, the exact shelf of the searched item can be determined and the search time can be considerably reduced.
2. Indoor Navigation und Tracking of Tugger Trains
Floor conveyors (forklifts, pallet trucks, telescopic forklifts, driverless transport vehicles, prime movers, etc.) have to be tracked in an industrial environment. They deliver goods to production and logistics. When they are late or leave the optimal path, expensive production stops occur.
With Ultra-wideband, the location of the vehicles is determined with an accuracy of 10-30 centimeters. Low latency times enable precise real-time direction instructions for the drivers. In addition, managers can monitor processes and intervene in time.
3. Improving Order Picking Productivity in Warehouses
The picking of goods is an important process in warehouses and distribution centers. Inefficient warehouse picking results in increased use of manpower and resources. An efficient picking process is therefore very important.
Tracking employees with UWB tags enables the traceability and visualization of routes. These can then be analyzed and optimization potential can be identified on the basis of the available data. This facilitates the realization of optimized and efficient picking processes.
