How do autonomous drones work in a warehouse environment?

Thanks to ground-breaking technology, fully autonomous, purpose-built drones are now able to navigate through even the most complex of warehouse layouts to each individual rack location, without any human intervention and without any reliance on GPS.

Upon the drones’ arrival at each rack location, the front-facing barcodes of 1-deep pallets or cases are scanned and data is compared against WMS records – all completely autonomously.

Why does autonomous drone technology make sense for warehouse operations?

The process of manual inventory counts in busy warehouse facilities is, at best, slow and labour-intensive but at worst, can be dangerous, expensive, and prone to inaccuracies.

Deploying inventAIRy XL for cycle counts, on the other hand, has been proven time and again to optimise inventory accuracy, eliminate labour cost, and dramatically improve the safety and productivity of the warehouse.

With the burden of inventory counts removed from your team’s shoulders, a higher proportion of their time is available to focus on the duties that provide value to your customers and to the profitability of the warehouse.

The deployment process

Feasibility Analysis

This stage assesses the benefits, potential challenges, impact on existing business processes, sustainability and scalability, as well as determining the anticipated ROI and payback period.

The analysis phase is designed to establish and plan how the project will be deployed in the most effective way.

 

PILOT DEPLOYMENT

On-site implementation of a 3-month pilot that will demonstrate the value of the solution.

This stage involves thorough testing to confirm stable and safe autonomous navigation of the drone from one aisle to another, consistent barcode detection, data communication between systems, etc. The purpose of the pilot is essentially to review, adapt, and fine-tune the process until both our team and yours are 100% happy with the outcomes.

PRODUCTION DEPLOYMENT

Upon successful completion of the pilot, full-scale production roll-out will follow soon after.

The solution will be working completely autonomously and in perfect harmony with your existing systems and processes, to conduct cycle counts at predetermined times of the day. Scanned data is compared with WMS records and staff are notified of any anomalies.
