iPad App for Warehouse Logistics Tracking

 

About the app

An iPad app to handle processes in a logistics warehouse. The app is linked to a bluetooth barcode scanner and industrial scales and it's used both for receiving shipments and to ship stored items to customers.

Some features of the app include:

  • using a bluetooth barcode scanner to input codes from boxes
  • using the iPad camera to take pictures of boxes and items that will later be stored on a server for the customers to see
  • connect to an Arduino board to get the weight from a weighting machine

To acquire the weight from an industrial scale, we built a small hardware device that's linked to the warehouse network and give both the Mac app and the iPad app access at any time to the weight placed on the scale.
