Smart glasses are reaching a technology tipping point, with lower costs, improved performance, and ease of integration with other mobile technologies and systems. But is vision-based picking and augmented reality poised to take over the DC? This fast-paced Q&A style webinar will answer that question, and explore the ways in which vision-based technology like smart glasses and smart watches can be combined with voice and barcode scanning to improve picking and other hands-on work in the DC.
Join us on June 14th at 1:00 PM EST as we discuss the latest software and hardware trends in the industry and share stories from organizations that are using new technologies inside their operations.
- State of smart glass technology: Costs, advantages and limitations
- The role of visual information in current warehouse picking systems: heads-up display versus augmented reality
- Trends in mobile technology platforms for the DC: Windows sunset and the rise of Android
The mobile technology landscape continues to transform as new “smart” devices, data capture, and location awareness technologies find functional homes inside warehouse operations. Since 2014, many DCs have traded their legacy RF and voice hardware for ruggedized Android smartphones and tablets that cost up to 80 percent less while offering better user interfaces and more powerful applications for picking and other warehouse tasks. New wearable form factors are now entering the market, creating new possibilities for improving efficiency, accuracy, and ergonomics.
