Leading global logistics service provider DB Schenker has successfully introduced Picavi’s smart glasses in order-picking operations, with the goal of implementing the smart picking solution as standard procedure across multiple locations.
During a trial period, the smart picking application was thoroughly explored in Bremen and Rodgau, Germany, with the team in Rodgau combining the solution with intelligent scanning glove ProGlove, DB Schenker
says on its website.
Picavi uses Google Glasses to project required information into the user’s field of vision. This means warehouse workers have both hands available for their primary work of picking goods instead of holding a hand scanner and paper documents. The innovative, hands-free solution maximizes productivity while minimizing error rates.
ProGlove is an intelligent scanning glove which is activated by pressing a button on the glove, allowing employees to use both hands for picking and further increasing productivity. ProGlove is already in use at DB Schenker’s warehouse in Eching, near Munich.
