A smart warehouse starts with location information. Revolutionize the way assets are tracked. Automating processes can increase efficiency and lead to higher warehouse optimization.
Take your first steps towards an IoT warehouse with yooBee:
- Receive accurate information on the indoor location & availability of employees, assets and vehicles.
- Create optimal routes for faster movement within the warehouse
- Provide greater visibility over warehouse operations
- Easy integration between systems to enable a more seamless supply chain
Accurate Forklift Positioning
yooBeeVision a highly innovative Roof Top mounted RTLS (Real Time Location System) device for Indoor and Outdoor positioning of Forklifts, which requires no infrastructure other than WiFi.
For outdoor operations GPS technology is used whereas Indoors, BlooLoc’s vision based sensor fusion provides the tracking platform and is accurate to within 30cm of the target object.
“yooBeeVision” Provides Value In Several Use Cases
Virtual Tagging: Once an asset is identified with a barcode (or RFID), it can be tracked and traced without any barcode (or RFID) scans for asset identification or positioning. The real time location of the forklifts that transport the assets, provides the WMS with sufficient data to reliably and accurately track the position of all assets in the warehouse, making barcode (or RFID) scans redundant. yooBeeVision effectively eliminates the time and human errors related to manual scanning.
Optimal Order assignment: Knowing the position of all forklifts in real time, offers the WMS the opportunity to assign an order to the forklift that is located closest to the first item on the order list, saving valuable driver time and speeding up the order picking process.
Navigation: yooBeeVision can navigate the forklift driver along the fastest possible order picking route, constantly providing updates according to his real time position. Especially for drivers that lack an intimate knowledge of warehouse’s content, such as temporary or rotating employees, significant time and cost savings can be achieved.
Utilization Analytics: Analysis of historical forklift movements (e.g. heat maps) can reveal opportunities for a more optimal allocation of assets in the warehouse, leading to a reduction of driver time and an acceleration of the order picking process.
yooBeeTGS – Truck Guidance system
“yooBeeTGS” is a highly innovative smartphone app which supports the truck driver during a typical SILO loading process.
“yooBeeTGS” achieves this by navigating the truck driver to the designated silo whereby the application accurately (cm-level accuracy) positions the truck’s designated hatch under the respective silo’s opening valve.
The key benefits are such that human errors can essentially be eliminated during the loading process as the silo’s valve can only be opened if the truck is positioned correctly according to the loading instructions. Further, use of the application can significantly speed-up the loading process by helping the driver to accurately position the truck’s designated hatch under the corresponding silo valve.
