What if voice picking systems could also see?

Vision picking is the next evolution of front-line data capture, adding the latest AI computer vision and ML object recognition technology to the capabilities of traditional RF barcode scanning and voice picking systems.

If you are looking for order picking solutions or voice picking alternatives and can say “our process could be improved if the picking system could see what’s really going on,” vision picking might be a beneficial alternative to voice picking systems.

Traditional voice picking systems were born in a time of pallet and case picking when the primary challenge was how to pick multiple cases without manual data entry on terminals. Hands-free, rapid picking made human workers as productive as possible. But as technology evolved and customer requirements became more complex, most voice vendors failed to update and expand their proprietary hardware and integration protocols to openly support new data capture technologies and advanced workflows.

Vision picking is the next evolution of front-line data capture, adding the latest AI computer vision and ML object recognition technology to the capabilities of traditional RF barcode scanning and voice picking systems.

New enterprise device form factors were also created, replacing the bulky RF terminals of the 9Os with one-handed, camera-enabled scanners like the Zebra TC8000 and introducing hands-free smart glasses, such as Google Glass, Realwear, Vuzix, and the Zebra HD4000.

What does having a camera in addition to a barcode scanner do for your information systems? It gives them the ability to drive context-aware processes. and to take advantage of memory to expedite data capture.

  • Instead of requiring voice check digits, which associates can memorize, a camera can scan locations to verify on arrival.
  • Instead of legacy RF processes that require multiple scans, a vision picking system can capture and parse multiple codes with one glance.
  • Instead of relying on voice prompts that may be misunderstood, vision picking can supplement spoken voice and voice recognition with text and images that reinforce the command.

Logistiview’s software automation platform powers the vision pick and put wall as well as many more processes from receiving to shipping. Click here to learn more.
