Digital SITL: the international transport and logistics exhibition in 100% digital format

From 23 to 26 June 2020, a 100% digital version of the SITL 2020 was held. In the sanitary context of this first half of 2020, the SITL could not take place in its usual conditions. In order to preserve a moment of meetings and exchanges between the stakeholders of transport and logistics, a 100% online version was organised giving rise to meetings, virtual tours and webinars.

More than 5,100 people took part in this digital edition, with 77 speakers and nearly 500 business meetings.

Conference – Innovation at the service of the Supply Chain

A fully autonomous industrial drone

Aware of the logistics-related opportunities offered by the physical and technical characteristics of drones, Hardis Group filed a patent in 2015 for an inventory-taking drone to automate inventories and simplify and optimize inventory management in warehouses.

The drone is equipped with sensors, enabling it to move around the warehouse autonomously, controlled by an operator. Its on-board camera identifies and captures inventory data which can be transmitted to any WMS on the market. The aim is to save time and increase productivity and safety in inventory and stock control operations.

 

Real-life testing with FM Logistic

Hardis Group recently signed an agreement with FM Logistic to test the solution at its logistics sites to check the system’s ability to meet the sector’s requirements. Innovation, which drives productivity, performance and flexibility, is a key value for FM Logistic, which has a committee of international experts dedicated to it. The aim is to imagine, design and deploy innovative solutions to improve working conditions for its employees and quality of service to its customers. So it was no surprise that the company agreed to get involved with the inventory-taking drone project.

FM Logistic opened up its warehouse in Satolas (France) to Hardis Group teams to conduct tests relating to flight conditions (site mapping, geolocation, lighting configurations, surfaces encountered by the drone, etc.) and the collection of information required for inventory-taking (label reading for example). In September, FM Logistic business teams will start testing the drone and the collection and processing of information by their tools.

Testing with FM Logistic will continue until the end of 2016.

Hardis Group receives the Special Jury Award of the 15th Innovation Awards at SITL (International Week of Transport and Logistics).

The jury of the SITL Innovation Awards made up of logistics and transport professionals examines about fifty entries each year.

The results were announced on Thursday, 2 April, during the last day of the exhibition: Hardis Group won the Special Jury Award for Eyesee, its inventory-taking drone.

About Eyesee:

  • Eyesee is an autonomous drone allowing to automate inventories and stock updates in warehouses.
  • The drone is equipped with a camera, a mapping system and indoor geolocation technology which allows to identify and capture the information to be treated in order to make the inventory, to associate the image with its position in the warehouse (indoor geolocation) and automatically translate its 3D position into a logistics address (storage location). The data collected by Eyesee can be processed in any warehouse management system (WMS) existing on the market.
  • Eyesee allows to improve the warehouse productivity by reducing material and human resources required to carry out inventories (rental of boom lifts, mobilizing operators, etc.).
  • This innovation paves the way to a daily inventory made every night, for example, and to a better stock reliability.
