inVia Robotics Adds Warehouse Social Distancing Features to inVia Logic and PickMate Software
inVia Robotics added social distancing to its inVia Logic software and inVia PickMate user tool. The new features proactively keep workers at a safe distance from each other and notify both warehouse workers and warehouse management if that distance is breached.
inVia Logic already provided access to a real-time 3D warehouse simulation view that shows customers the location of each labor point in the warehouse. That view has now been enhanced to emphasize when workers have breached a safe zone of six feet. The system also sends a proactive alert and labor-management reporting. The distance calculation can be easily modified as guidelines for safe distancing are revised.
Workers are also protected on the warehouse floor through inVia PickMate, a user tool within inVia Logic that guides workers through fulfillment tasks. The app works on any smart device, and sends a notification to users when they’ve moved out of a safe zone.
inVia’s software and full robotic automation system are both available through its robotics-as-a-service (RaaS) model.
“We listened to our customers who are concerned about how to keep their e-commerce fulfillment running without disruption, but also want to ensure safety for their people,” says Lior Elazary, co-founder and CEO of inVia Robotics. “This solution can be implemented immediately and can easily be adapted to address new workplace concerns as they arise.”
