Artificial Intelligence Solves Master Data Issues
3rd March 2021
Digitec Galaxus AG, the largest online retailer in Switzerland, and Logivations GmbH, an international consulting and technology company based in Munich, concluded a cooperation to improve Digitec Galaxus products master data with the help of Logivations Artificial Intelligence Software for Goods Recognition, Counting & Measurement.
After conducting an extensive trial phase last year, in the coming weeks Logivations will install 40 workstations in the receiving area of the Digitec Galaxus distribution center in Wohlen. In addition to the engineering services to support the initial configuration and setup of the 40 workstations, Logivations also offers extended maintenance of hardware and software components.
AI based Goods Recognition, Counting and Measurement
Logivations W2MO uses neural networks running on a GPU which can be trained to “learn” certain patterns so that goods can be automatically recognized, counted, and/or measured. The process usually takes less than a second. Data can be easily transferred to any WMS using an USB- or RestFullAPI-interface.
A new technology offers new opportunities
In contrast to the use of conventional 3D scanners, Logivations’ technology can not only measure goods much faster, but also recognize them by their appearance or barcodes / QR codes. For this purpose, certain properties (e.g. the X, Y & Z dimensions of the products, as well as the weight) are recorded, the product is classified (e.g. boxed/unboxed item, irregular shape, textile, etc). All steps are done simultaneously and the user sees the result immediately. More information can be found here.
