Datalogic was selected by the Association for Automatic Identification and Mobility (AIM) as winner of the 2015 AIDC Case Study Competition for an automated scanning portal that uses digital imaging to detect and identify items.
Open to all AIM members, the annual award recognizes companies that have developed and delivered compelling solutions that contribute to the growth and advancement of automatic identification and data capture (AIDC). Datalogic received its award for its contribution to a scanning system developed by Vierpool that is based on the company’s Jade X7 automated scanning portal. The system was installed at at Simon Loos, the warehousing and value added logistics supplier for many of the largest retailers in the Netherlands, for processing returns of pre-stocked promotional displays.
"We are honored to be selected by AIM for an award that underscores the collaborative effort of our business partners and customers," said Pietro Todescato, CEO of Datalogic ADC. "As this application shows, Datalogic is focused on listening to our customer’s needs and developing digital imaging technology that can identify items by detecting a bar code or by using image processing."
A Jade automated scanning portal was placed at the start of a line, which provided faster scanning of items. A simple employee is able to place items onto a fast moving belt, and items pass through the Jade system and are identified at speeds much faster than manual scanning. The Jade system features 1 MPixel imagers on six planes that measure the speed, shape, and position of items as they pass through. JadeAssist software uses this data to help indicate if items are stacked on top of each other.
The system is powered by multiple ARM microprocessors and is able capture andprocess images while handling other peripheral operations. Additionally, the system features Illumix illumination technology to deliver stop-action imaging throughout the process. In addition to reading barcodes through digital imaging, the system is able to identify items using integrated ViPR (visual object recognition) technology to increase the first pass capture rate of the scanner.
