High Speed Parcel Induction

The PickOne Perception System identifies the pick points of randomly oriented items to enable a robot to pick them at high speed. PickOne verifies placement and addresses errors by issuing robot commands to reposition errant items.

How it Works

Step 01

When parcels arrive in a chute or on a conveyor, the PickOne Perception Kit images the items.

Step 02

Using 2-D, 3-D, and AI algorithms, PickOne identifies each pickable item in  the scene and assigns it an associated confidence score.

Step 03

PickOne sends the robot controller an array of locations and data for each pickable item via the PickOne API. If no items in the scene have a high enough confidence level, there are two options.

The first option is for PickOne to issue a shuffle command to the robot controller to disturb the parcels and rescan.

The second option is to issue a Yonder request. Yonder sends a picture of what the system sees to a remotely connected Crew Chief who handles the exception by selecting an item in the scene. In seconds, Yonder updates PickOne, and PickOne sends the data to the robot.

In parallel, Yonder stores the Crew Chief’s response, allowing the machine-learning algorithms to make the system smarter as it works. This ensures even higher performance over time.

Step 04

Upon placement, the PickOne Perception Kit images the place zone to ensure a quality event. If it detects an out-of-spec parcel or a double, it signals the robot to resolve the issue.
