Earlier this week, our commercial director Dirk van Lammeren and account director Richard Hagen signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Guangdong Tengen Industrial Group Co., Ltd; the Dutch Embassy in Beijing hosted the ceremony.
Richard Hagen: “This is the start of close cooperation to extend the presence of Prime Vision in the Chinese market”.
This year during Parcel + Post Expo, as part of an exciting partnership with our launching customer Nexive, selected clients will be offered a unique opportunity to have a sneak preview of a sorting warehouse where our autonomous sorting concept is running.
Our Vision Engineer Chris van Dam will be speaking at the Parcel + Post Expo Conference about How to solve Addressing Challenges with Deep Learning
Chris gives an insight into how innovative machine learning technologies, such as Deep Learning, promise to meet head-on some of the challenges arising from the ever-expanding eCommerce market.
Prime Vision and its technology partner TWTG have successfully performed a limited production run (LPR) of their joint asset tracking solution for a major national post in Asia Pacific.
In early May 2019, the two teams clearly proved the solution’s robust ability to track objects between two parcel centers.
We are proud to announce the appointment of Dirk van Lammeren as Commercial Director, effective immediately. Van Lammeren brings with him valued commercial and innovation expertise, and with the existing management team will help steer the future direction of Prime Vision.
Over the last months we made a lot of progress on Autonomous Sorting, sorting of parcels with mobile robots.
In the course of this year we will go into a first operational environment with approximately 40 robots. In the coming months, we will be fine tuning the autonomous system here in Delft and that’s where we like to invite you because we think it’s a great opportunity to see the system actually work and to discuss possibilities with you.
Last week we organised our very first demo and meet & greet for students of the TU University in Delft. We presented our core products and explained more about the innovations we are working on. In the course of the year we will organize more of those student only demonstrations.
Asian parcels vary hugely in size, shape and weight, making them difficult to position correctly for scanning in the automated sorting process. Also, CN custom labels and barcodes are often poorly printed with critical information missing or smudged. Add in the lack of standardization in address label format – that makes it near-impossible for common scanners to read – and the process becomes daunting for any sorting hub.
Providing a viable solution is Prime Vision’s new eCommerce Parcel Reader which is proving a powerful addition to any established OCR solution.
Brexit looms ever closer, and with it increasing uncertainty. It’s now apparent that we need to prepare for a wide number of possible scenarios, and plan the contingencies to meet an unknown outcome.
The discussion of whether we face a hard or soft exit has for the moment to have taken a backseat to even more fundamental questions which leave us with the possibility of No Deal or even no Brexit at all.
