International VDI Workshop - How to implement Drones in Intralogistics

How you can integrate drones in your intralogistics | VDI Workshop

The VDI “How to Implement Drones in Intralogistics” workshop will show you how you can successfully integrate drones into your intralogistic processes. You’ll find out how you can use drones to save time and money in inventory management, increase data quality in WMS and ERP and reduce delivery times. The focus of the workshop is on two groundbreaking drone-based solutions for intralogistics, developed and patented by the experts at the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics IML.

Continuous inventory with the help of autonomous drones

Autonomously acting drones allow for the visualization of stock levels, which enables taking continuous inventories for the first time. That’s why drones have increasingly come into focus for decision makers in intralogistics. Drones make the dream of having a ‘digital twin’ of a warehouse reality, without extra expenditure or manual effort. The VDI “How to Implement Drones in Intralogistics” workshop will show you how drones support empty packaging management and how they can transport parts to a deployment site in a matter of minutes.

The main themes of the workshop are two solutions that are gaining traction in the industry developed by the renowned Fraunhofer IML. InventAIRy is a system that takes an automated inventory with autonomous flying robot systems, which steer themselves and communicate with other objects through intelligent networks. DelivAIRy is a solution for B2B transports where flying robots autonomously locate, pick up and deliver loads. After visiting the VDI “How to Implement Drones in Intralogistics” workshop, you will know what to look out for when taking inventory and transporting parts with drones and how to make the most of this technology.

This workshop is an ideal accompaniment to the VDI “Intralogistic Solutions” conference, which begins the day after. If you book the workshop and conference together, you can profit from a reduced combination price.
