Wireless Transceiver Glove for Low-Level Order Picking

Crown Equipment Corp., New Bremen, Ohio, revolutionized low-level order picking with the release of the QuickPick Remote Advance system. With the simple press Crown QuickPickof a button on a wireless transceiver glove, order selectors in warehouse and distribution centers can remotely advance trucks to the next pick location without having to return to the operator’s compartment. This allows them to remain in the optimum position for picking.

The QuickPick Remote Advance system uses task automating technologies to simplify workflow and improve the picking process, thereby increasing productivity and reducing operator fatigue. Customers can choose between a transceiver glove or a transceiver trigger. Both remotes feature a conveniently-located, thumb-actuated button that operators press to advance the truck to the next pick slot.

A wireless transceiver module that snaps into a holder on the back of the glove periodically transmits and receives RF signals from an RF tower located on the truck.

QuickPick Remote Advance also utilizes lasers to detect obstacles in the path of the truck. If an obstacle is detected, the brakes are automatically applied. The lasers can also detect proximity to racks, enabling the system to utilize Crown’s Access 1 2 3 Comprehensive System Control to initiate minor corrections to keep the truck moving down the aisle.
