Vision capabilities provide warehouse workers and operators with the simplicity, efficiency and accuracy to generate, communicate and perform tasks that voice, radio frequency and paper based systems cannot. Augmented reality, provided by augmented vision capabilities, does not replace existing reality like virtual reality does, but instead uses sensors and other digital means to overlay information inside smart glasses to provide context for the warehouse environment, such as providing signals to instruct workers where to pick from. This improves worker efficiency and enhances their safety by providing greater certainty and clarity. Smart glasses provide interaction between the warehouse environment, workers and back-end systems.
Experience has shown that a quick training program on how to properly fit and use smart glasses can get employees proficient in 10 to 15 minutes, and they can then comfortably wear them all day. Enhanced vision capabilities benefit warehouse workers by simplifying their instructions and tasks in increasingly complex environments. By providing employees with visual signals that are intuitive and universally understood, such as green for “Go” and red for “Stop,” and by aligning the visual display directly with the work being done, the technology makes their jobs easier and allows They perform tasks more effectively and efficiently.
Enhanced visual technology replaces outdated paper-based management systems and complements systems that use radio frequency technology and voice commands. Smart glasses are far superior to RF devices that take up both hands and divert workers’ attention while receiving data and instructions. Enhanced visual capabilities offer a better solution than voice commands alone, which cannot communicate complex data in a format that workers can capture and remember. Today’s advanced vision systems can easily integrate with other enterprise systems, allow voice guidance to supplement visual instructions when necessary, and, by leveraging less expensive new technologies, represent a more cost-effective solution than their predecessors.
