In Via Robotics Social Distancing

Warehouse Social Distancing Features

May 13, 2020
InVia Robotics has added social distancing to its warehouse solutions to proactively keep workers at a safe distance from each other.

InVia Robotics has added social distancing to its inVia Logic software and inVia PickMate user tool. The new features proactively keep workers at a safe distance from each other and also notify both warehouse workers and warehouse management if that distance is breached.

With inVia Logic users already had access to a real-time 3-D warehouse simulation view that shows them the location of each labor point in the warehouse. That view has now been enhanced to emphasize when workers have breached a safe zone of six feet. The system also sends them a proactive alert, and the data is included in their labor-management reporting. The distance calculation can be modified as guidelines for safe distancing are revised.

Workers are also protected on the warehouse floor through inVia PickMate, which is a user tool within inVia Logic that guides workers through fulfillment tasks. The app works on any smart device, and it sends a notification to the user when they've moved out of a safe zone.

InVia’s software and full robotic automation system are both available through its Robotics-as-a-Service (RaaS) model, where users pay a monthly subscription for automation services.
