Currently, we are running a pilot project about the use of mixed reality in warehouses and we are e.g. testing LOGIA Warehouse Management System in combination with Microsoft’s HoloLens. This is showed on the picture above.
In mixed reality (MR), the employee can both experience “the real world” through the glasses and see digital information. Furthermore, it is possible to be guided through, for instance picking jobs.
Instead of interacting with LOGIA on a screen or getting instructions through a headset, you always have access to information right in front of you through the MR glasses. You can for example be guided through a picking route where you just follow the pointer. This pointer will be shown in connection with what you are seeing in real life. You can easy find a location as this will be shown with a marker though the glasses. You can further easy scan a QR-/barcode by simply saying “scan” and then look at the code.
You will have your hands free and you can easily scan, sign etc. by just saying commands or by tapping on the buttons, which will be located “in the air” in front of you. In addition, you can view dashboards, overviews etc. For a third party, it might look very peculiar with the gestures you are making. However, when you first have tried the headset, you will realise the benefits and possibilities of mixed reality.
The MR-technology fits perfectly in line with LOGIA’s visual and graphic user interface. If and when we start to use mixed reality, is too soon to tell. However, right know we are testing what it takes to utilise this technology and we are evaluating which benefits our customers can gain by using the MR-technology.
