Augmented Reality in Warehousing and Logistics

This research begins with definition, benefits and key trends of Augmented Reality (AR) technology. As one of the largest verticals for AR glasses shipments and total value chain revenues, logistics greatly benefits from AR in much of the standard workflow, such as pick and pack and remote expertise. More universal AR use cases can also be incredibly useful in various parts of the logistics market. To fully enjoy these benefits, key features for hardware are required to be addressed as well as content and platform development. Proven benefits of AR adoption, creation of value-added services, lower costs, etc., will drive the adoption of AR in logistics, but cultural aspects, operation management, security and others might hamper the growth. Furthermore, automation could lead customers skipping AR-powered workers in favor of worker-replacing autonomy.

These new strategies were first popularized by Daimler when it officially announced a new corporate strategy for the future of its company—Connected, Autonomous, Shared & Service, and Electric (CASE)—at CES 2017.

Too Far Gone? Unsafe Infrastructure Bad for Transport

4Q 2017

It is believed that of the 612,000 bridges in the United States, more than 130,000 – over 21% - are either functionally obsolete or structurally deficient. Eighty-seven of these bridges are in Palm Beach County, Florida and the full list even includes iconic infrastructures such as the Brooklyn Bridge. Over one in four of the bridges are 50 years old or more, without having had any major reconstruction. About 55,000 are estimated to require significant repairs and unfortunately, these bridges are crossed 185 million times per day. At the current rate, it will take about two decades to repair just the bridges currently identified.
