WMS AUTOMATION USING HANDHELD DEVICE AND INTERNET OF THINGS


This research project came into our mind by considering the growing number of eCommerce companies, some of which heavily rely on manual processes in their Warehouse Management Capabilities.

This idea is to use Handheld Device along with Internet of Things Sensors such as BLEs, RFIDs and Barcodes to Automate the warehouse management. The IOT Sensors will communicate via a Gateway to the Cloud and Backend systems to achieve real time inventory updations during Pick Up and Put Away processes in Warehouses to start with. The System will also manage the product lifecycle between various departments such as Billing, Packaging, Shipping etc.

The solution we are designing can be easily integrated with existing WMS Systems and help improve the efficiency of the warehouse personnel by reducing manual efforts and helping solve the lost item problem which is very common in warehouses.
