We recently worked together with Swiss Post developing a concept for automating two processes:
- roll container loading
- unloading and injection of items in the sorting system
Both represented a great challenge at the moment. Given the large number of variables and constraints and the complexity of interfacing the new system with the existing information and physical infrastructure, high competence both in logistics and robotics have been required completing this project. Some technically feasible concepts have been developed and carefully evaluated. As a result the best concept has been selected and recommendations have been provided, outlining the next steps in order for the system to be further developed and designed.
