The Automated Fulfillment Centers Of The Future
January 13, 2019 / IoT.Business.News
Automation has touched every part of our lives, from paying bills to buying groceries, and even filling your prescriptions. The automation revolution has also become a significant part of the fulfillment center industry and has brought supply chain operations into the 21st century by adding electronics components that allow systems and devices to be remotely managed, tracked, and monitored. By making systems able to sense, react to, and report on their environments without human touch, the efficiency of warehouse operations has never been so simple. Many components play into this, but perhaps none is more important than the Internet of Things. What is the Internet of Things (IoT)? These days, pretty much every piece of electronics you touch is connected to the internet in some way. It used just to be computers, but now any type of device, object or equipment can be internet-ready through a wireless connection.
