Voice+Laser driverless vehicles have industrial grade laser guidance and incorporate voice-directed picking, leaving operators with their hands free to maximize case picking productivity. At the start of an order, the truck delivers a new pallet to the picker. Then, it automatically moves with the voice-equipped picker as they verbally confirm picks, and transports the completed pallet to shipping while the next truck brings a new pallet to the picker. During peak periods, pickers with manual pallet trucks can work in conjunction with the system to handle additional throughput. As requirements change, routing plans can be updated and additional vehicles can be added or transferred between sites.
