DHL Pick By Vision

And it will be better with a wider field of view. This is just getting started.

Augmented Reality and Supply Chain

The next bid trend in the supply chain industry may just be augmented reality (AR). International logistics company DHL is developing and implementing smart glasses in warehouses, creating their own augmented reality. Sound interesting? Yes, because of AR's endless possibilities in the supply chain. Augmented reality by DHL can be broken down to performing four unique stages that come together to provide the final output.

1. Scene Capture:
The reality that should be augmented is captured via a video-capture device (such as a camera) or a see-through device (such as a head-mounted display).
2. Scene Identification:
Captured reality is scanned to identify and define the exact position where the virtual content should be embedded.
This position could be identified either by markers (visual tags) or by tracking technologies such as GPS, sensors, infrared, or laser.
3. Scene Processing:
As the scene becomes clearly recognized and identified, the corresponding virtual content is requested, typically from the Internet or from any kind of database.
4. Scene Visualization:
Finally, the AR system produces a mixed image of the real space as well as the virtual context. The two are combined and come together as one.
