Industrial IoT-based Smart Robotic Warehouse Management System
In response to the advent of emerging Industry 4.0 technologies such as autonomous robots, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), cloud computing, PolyU collaborates with industrial partner to develop an IIoT-based Smart Robotic Warehouse Management System for implementing the concept of smart warehousing. The project redefined warehouse picking and replenishment operations from man-to-goods to goods-to-man using autonomous mobile robots. It is believed that the implementation of this system can change the logistics operations from labour intensive procedures to automation. It also provides solutions for better floor space utilization, labour utilization, and operational efficiency in warehousing.
RFID-Based Green Management Information Platform
A Green Management Information Platform, including smart devices, motion devices, software modules and middleware, which features the integration of various latest technologies, i.e. IoT-based cloud service, wireless sensor and actuator network (WSAN), WSAN middleware, Near Field Communication (NFC), is designed and developed by PolyU and Perfect Green Supplies Company Limited. The platform attempts to improve the efficiency of dishwashing process, increase customer satisfaction and also enhance data visibility and transparency in environmental hygiene service and logistics operation.
FIFO Warehousing Pallet Transferring, Combining and Splitting by RFID MeansSeamless integration of RFID technology, mobile devices and ERP system, to achieve warehouse visibility Feedback from client "Midas Printing Group Company Limited": - "Before we apply the RFID solution provided by the PolyU, we never imagine there is such a convenient way for precise inventory management to achieve FIFO, especially what we have are easily-deteriorated paper products."
RFID Supply Chain Collaborative Platform (RSCCP)
An intelligent eSecurity system, including devices, software modules and middleware, which features the integration of various logistics enabling technologies i.e. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), Global Positioning System (GPS), were designed and developed by PolyU and Autotoll Limited successfully. The system can be deployed in different applications, especially in physical asset, container and fleet management. The software is capable to connect with public information sharing platforms such as OBTIS, ezTRACK and EPCglobal network to share and integrate real time logistics and physical asset information.
