Trolley found with RealWear HMT-1
Updated: Apr 18, 2019
Daily products company Meira Nova and Finn-ID, which specializes in the digitalisation of workflow management, have designed an innovative system to improve the quality of logistics at Meira Nova's warehouse in Tuusula. According to Logistics Development Manager Jari Saviniemi, indoor positioning and smart glasses have been used together before, but not in Finland.
The key components of the system are the two RFID tags of each trolley, 110 RFID readers and 20 RealWear HMT-1 smart glasses. "The chance of a wrong shipment will now be significantly smaller", Saviniemi says. An additional advantage is the time gain in teaching new personnel.
Saviniemi also says that the number of readers and smart glasses is high enough for both current and future needs, as the circumstances are not especially harsh. One broken device has no effect on the functioning of the whole. "These smart glasses have been tested for falling from the height of 1.8 meters to a concrete floor, and they didn't break. But if, exceptionally, one or two devices were out of use, the system would still work." Saviniemi estimates that the investment very soon pays for itself in the form of fewer reclamations and more efficient indoor positioning.
