The real-time locating system from Sky-Trax enables GENCO to locate pallets anywhere within its warehouse, including while in transit, with 100 percent, to-the-inch accuracy. A combination of ceiling-installed 2D barcodes, barcodes on pallets and racks, and two forklift-attached optical cameras provide the coordinates needed to identify where a pallet is, what product it holds and the height of the pallet rack where it is stored. The unequaled accuracy of this system comes at a much lower price than traditional radio-frequency locating systems and can easily be changed if the warehouse is reconfigured. [Run Time (Min): 10:52]
