More Accurate Logistics with Edge IoT

Sept. 23, 2019
Interactive exhibit shows how pallets can “talk” and robots “come alive” with Edge IoT to improve speed, accuracy, and productivity.

ADLINK’s IoT Solutions and Technology division debuted the Edge IoT Smart Pallet Experience during PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2019 featuring a game-like exhibit where attendees got hands-on with Edge IoT technology that makes pallets “smart” and robots “come alive.” Booth visitors stacked pallets and raced the clock for a chance to win prizes and meet Rover the Robot who gave booth visitors free t-shirts.

“Our Edge IoT solutions can help make conveyors smart, find missing inventory, automate bin picking, determine fill levels, connect robots and more—all in real-time,” says Daniel Collins, ADLINK IoT director for North America. “By bringing AI to the edge we’re helping to automate warehouse logistics in a quick and cost-effective way that increases productivity and employee ergonomics. One of our customers decreased the time it takes to build a pallet by 41%, increasing total daily throughput by 200% without disrupting the way employees are used to working.”

The immersive experience demonstrated machine vision, AI, and robotics technology for warehouse distribution and manufacturing with partners Amazon Web Services (AWS), Intel’s IoT group, and robot maker Rover Robotics. Attendees could interact with ADLINK Edge™ and ADLINK Vortex DDS™ to experience first-hand how to quickly solve AI and vision-based IoT challenges.

To participate, Attendees can reserve a spot in advance or stop by the ADLINK booth at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Level 1, Lower South Hall #6387, Sept. 23-25, for the Edge IoT Smart Pallet Experience: racing to clear a pallet manifest for a chance to win a $100 Visa gift card and meet Rover the Robot.
