Logistics and Retail Automation

A medley of images showing a warehouse, logistics and POS system

With global parcel shipments on track to reach 220 billion by 2027, logistics and retail automation will have a significant part to play in achieving efficiency and sustainability in the supply chain while also satisfying consumer demand for faster delivery cycles and a better customer experience.

Most of today’s warehouse and distribution centers operate at only 80% to 85% efficiency. Logistics automation can help reduce and resolve issues like missorted products, which currently must cycle back through the system to be categorized correctly. Applications such as machine vision, data capture scanning, asset tracking, and object dimensioning deliver real-time data that enables new efficiencies in logistics automation. Secure, safe authentication of edge node devices will also prove essential.

Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) provides industry-leading technologies such as 3D depth sensing, high g accelerometers, secure and safe fast battery chargers, and USB power delivery devices to enable fast, secure data collection and management in support of retail and logistics automation.

Learn how ADI’s high resolution 3D depth sensing technology coupled with advanced image stitching algorithms enables fast and accurate object dimensioning for logistics applications.
