A solution to gather warehouse data from flexible locations
Gather AI uses existing drones and adds its own software.
The drones will fly around the warehouse, using a hexagonal cylinder as geolocation. They take pictures of shipments, incurred damage, and especially can measure cargo dimensions. This recorded information can help improve shipping and cargo planning management.
As a premium product, the drone uses customized software to suit each individual client’s needs. Customers can operate drones of any number through a single control panel. It only takes 30 minutes to be able to fly the plane and it only takes a few hours to master the control panel.
Along with that, the flying device does not require continuous wifi but can still locate and track the warehouse. In addition, in each service package, if one aircraft fails, an additional one will be replaced. Network security is ensured by being managed by Microsoft Assure and fully integrated with application programming interface (API).
Another special feature of Gather AI is that it allows data to be collected from flexible locations, instead of scanning in fixed locations like some hand-held scanners or size scanners used today.
Potentiality in the near future
Usually, it takes an employee a long time to learn how to order goods. Then, they need training and experience to gain experience. Thanks to this solution, businesses can save money that would otherwise be spent on training, utilizing, and even arranging the pallet system.
As expected, this solution will be available in the international market in the next two years and it is targeted at 3PL company, even serving the US Army and Air Force in non-military operations such as retail.
