Storage cell detection in block storage area by means of real-time location

In the automated detection of storage zones using a real-time position identification sys-tem (“Real-Time Locating System“ or RTLS), the position is located at an accuracy of to 0,5 m. The warehouse ranges can be freely defined. The fork height of the fork lift truck used can also be detected by means of the location system.

Potentials of the RFID application

  • Enables efficient use of dynamic stockkeeping
  • Increase in process reliability
  • Avoids errors that could result from scanning the wrong storage cell
  • Increased level of automation due to automated scanning of the loading and the storage cells
  • Reduction of idle time, such as for manual scanning or regular getting in/getting out of the FLT to record loading goods and storage cells
  • Avoids search time
  • Automated and continuous stocktaking in the represented warehouse range
