How does Nokia AIMS operate?
Smart drones operate 100% autonomously
AIMS drones operate completely autonomously, without any need for human intervention. When scheduled, each drone can take off, navigate through a warehouse, and complete inventory scanning tasks independently.
Accurate product scanning and cycle-counting
Using advanced computer-vision-based scanning technology, AIMS drones accurately identify and record the location of each inventory item they can also detect empty bins.
Advanced localization technology
Because there is no GPS in AIMS drones use a proprietary advanced computer vision-based localization technology, originally developed by Nokia Bell Labs researchers. Consisting of a combination of cameras, sensors, and machine learning algorithms, drones can accurately determine their position and orientation within a warehouse environment.
Get daily inventory analytics and snapshots: Intuitive and accessible anywhere
Customers get a daily snapshot of their inventory via an easy-to-use graphical user interface, accessible anywhere. Users can see where misplaced items are, which bins are empty, locate missing inventory and see historical data.
System integration via API (Application Program Interfaces) (coming 2024)
Drone data feeds can connect directly into your favorite applications or WMS (Warehouse Management System) to help you update stock levels and identify potential inventory mismatch problems.
Intuitive interface that can be accessed from anywhere: users can get a snapshot of their inventory from the comfort of their office.
One day, all warehouse management solutions will work this way. But why wait? Contact us to get a bespoke ROI business case based on your warehouse dimensions.
