Numina Group, a material handling systems integrator, has made software enhancements to its Vision Capture and Analysis System (VCAS). This order-validation product uses vision technology to reduce customer returns and inventory losses by providing visual proof of the actual shipped goods. This is done by capturing real-time, high-resolution digital images of the internal case contents or all sides of full cases, including the bar code and picking-label bar code.
The VCAS uses a Numina Group heuristic, self-learning algorithm, to "learn" the case shipment characteristics for validating picking. As new picks are made, the VCAS Software System captures an image of the contents of cartons or the sides of cases. It then determines the probability of a match between the newly captured images and pre-learned images of the same types of picks, which are stored in its database. The VCAS System can be combined with Numina's Cube3, an in-line weight and dimensioning unit, and case UPC bar-code scanning to provide complete case shipment validation.
