Heat Map: 5 Out Of 200 Augmented Reality Wearables Startups
For our 5 picks of AR Wearables startups in logistics, we used a data-driven startup scouting approach to identify the most relevant solutions globally. The Heat Map below highlights 5 interesting examples out of 200 highly relevant AR Wearables solutions in the logistics industry. Depending on your specific needs, your top 5 picks might look entirely different.
Logistics Workx – Gamification To Train & Onboard New Employees
One of the main objectives of Augmented Reality devices is creating an interactive space for testing, learning, and inspecting. In terms of logistics, AR Wearables play an important role in teaching newcomers to work in the industry. For instance, Netherlands-based Logistics Workx is able to create a 3D visual for any location. If optimized to the specific needs, the system serves as a useful gamification tool for training and onboarding new employees before they actually begin working.
GetVu – Smart Glasses
Smart glasses which work with Augmented Reality are implemented to optimize and speed up the picking process. With the help of scanning and on-time tracking, the glasses give tips in visual or auditory form. Indian-based smart glass startup GetVu offers high-level error reduction regarding the precise picking, thus, leading to increased productivity. In addition, the glasses propose a gaming experience for its users to make the process more interactive.
Oculavis – Advanced Vision Technologies
Another specification of smart glasses is digital navigation and wayfinding within a warehouse. Advanced vision technologies such as Germany-based Oculavis offer additional options within smart glasses. It provides a convenient navigation system, inspections, visual checks, among other advantages.
VIZ360 – Warehouse Operations & Planning
Modern warehouse operations proceed with the modern means of visualizing inner changes. Such operations include the redesign of material, color, shape, the replacement of things, and the optimization of the workflow by planning future rearrangements. For instance, VIZ360 from Australia enhance in-warehouse operations with AR to run the processes smoothly and efficiently. Beginning with sorting, conveying, picking, and ending with planning the changes in accommodation.
Extensius – Freight Loading Optimization
The utilization of high-quality AR Wearables leads to a speedy freight loading process. The loader operates a specialized AR tool and sees the most optimized options for loading the cargo directly on-screen. Platforms such as US-based Extensius enable the loader to see the final result of the load with improving worker productivity in the warehouse. By distributing and editing the loading plan, it is easy to adjust the final result to the client’s needs or preferences.
