Lenovo and Ubotica collaborated to design, architect and implement the Video Orchestrated Freight Management system that monitors and optimises stock movement and placement within Lenovo’s warehouse environments.

Operating on Lenovo’s Edge Server technology, and using Intel’s Artificial Intelligence OpenVINO framework to accelerate inference, the system processes video streams in parallel from multiple cameras to disposition the content of forklifts automatically and efficiently. To achieve this, we implement a concept of ‘Virtual Gates’ and use Data Matrix codes in the warehouse.

Complementary technology running on Windows based laptops on board the forklifts automates the “Put Away” and “Pick Up” processes.

Overall the system interfaces to backend ERP systems.

Video Orchestrated Freight Management is operational at facilities in the US and China.
