The rationale for Picavi’s pick-by-vision technology was recently profiled in Quality Digest. The author of the article, manufacturing journalist, TR Cutler reported Picavi was the first company in the world to develop pick-by-vision: the first order picking with smart glasses…from a vision to a market-ready solution for intralogistics. Combining the advantages of pick-to-light and pick-by-voice visually guides the picker through the warehouse or manufacturing facility by means of a flexible and adaptable system.

By working with smart glasses, the visual guidance is easy, flexible, and hands-free. A wearable glove or ring Bluetooth barcode scanner enables uncomplicated and relaxed working. The order picker receives all relevant information in real time in the glasses and thus has the security and the ability to check storage locations or article numbers at any time. The required scanning verifies that the correct article has been picked. The picker has both hands free. This approach not only saves a lot of time, but also reduces the error rate considerably, to almost zero.
Pick-by-vision ensures employees’ safety and avoids employee cross-contamination during the pandemic. “The benefit of the Picavi system is that each worker has their own set of glasses, at least for the shift, and no one else touches it. Compared to pick-to-light which has many different hands cross-contaminating, the Pick-by-vision solution is far safer,” says Carsten Funke, CEO for Picavi USA.
