A picker with an RF scanner is constantly looking at the gun to get pick commands, hitting the confirm button and doing things in sequential fashion which is time consuming. Warehouse operations costs add up to 20% of the total logistics costs for DHL.
In the Vision Picking pilot test, pickers are equipped with advanced smart glasses which visually display digital picking list in their field of vision and the best route, reducing their travel time by efficient path planning.
The automated barcode scanning capabilities can check whether the worker has arrived at the right location, and guide the worker to quickly locate the right item on the shelf.
Furthermore, the glasses work well within DHL’s existing infrastructure, so expensive overhauls like redesigned conveyor and sorter systems are not required.
