Embedded systems are needed to implement Smart Warehouse systems.
Smart warehousing has bucked the global economic slowdown in case of the Corona Crisis. Besides the already growing development of e-commerce, other factors such as consumer demand for shorter delivery times have become keys to driving revenue growth. Embedded systems are needed to implement this.
Smart warehousing encompasses the use of sensors, RFID (radio frequency identification), network communications, GPS systems, and information technology in the warehouse management process. Thus will be combined with automated logistics equipment to achieve fully automatic data capture, recognition, warning, and management. Together, these systems reduce storage costs, optimize efficiency, and enhance smart management capabilities.
Unmanned warehousing is an integral part of this general trend, and many devices now need an embedded system to provide the »smarts« they need for automation. With a focus on smart warehouse applications, Cincoze provides tailored products with different performance, size, and functions for a range of applications.
Cincoze has a range of small, low-power embedded systems for automated guided vehicles (AGV), automatic stacker, and other applications where reduced power consumption reduces overall battery charging time, maximizing time in use. A wireless communication module with Wi-Fi, 3G, LTE, and GPS allows free movement between racks and obstacles through precision positioning, to realize the real-time visual management of smart warehouses.
Furthermore, the embedded systems have I/O connections for COM, Power over Serial, high-speed USB, GbE LAN, PoE to connect to any peripherals needed for product identification and data processing. For goods, storage locations, and racks with electronic labels, the system can automatically verify the quantity and attributes of goods, identify storage rack classification, and find stacking information without requiring manual intervention.
Static electricity caused by multiple electronic devices often interferes with the normal operation of neighboring instruments and equipment or causes damage due to current and voltage instability. Cincoze embedded systems have electrostatic discharge, overcurrent, and overvoltage protection to prevent equipment in unsafe environments. All embedded systems operate from -40 to +70 °C and have vibration/shock resistance of 5/50 Grms for maximum stability and reliability.
