In the Winter edition of Mail and Express Review, Prime Vision’s Innovation Director Bernd van Dijk explains his vision on the self-organising parcel.
Bernd van Dijk: “I think it’s accurate to say, that fairly soon, a parcel will be smart enough to make informed, agile decisions that ensure the most effective delivery options.
Fresh from winning two recent industry innovation awards for the Autonomous Sorting solution, Prime Vision’s visionary new system has sent shockwaves through the industry, compelling Postal and Parcel to assess both their current set-ups and future plans. After a successful proof-of-concept demonstration to an invited audience proved the concept feasible, Prime Vision now has a pilot with a second postal partner commencing mid 2018.
Delft, The Netherlands, 11 July 2017. Today Prime Vision and Unmanned Life presented the results of the proof of concept and performed a live demonstration for PostNL of their Autonomous Sorting solution. With an empty warehouse as a venue, the presentation demonstrated a sorting centre manned only by autonomous robotic UV’s (Unmanned Vehicles).
