Mac OS desktop app for Warehouse Logistics Tracking

 

About the app

A Mac OS app to handle processes in a logistics warehouse. The app is linked to DSLR cameras, bluetooth barcode scanners and industrial scales.

Some features of the app include:

  • using a bluetooth barcode scanner to input codes from boxes
  • connect to an Arduino board to get the weight from a weighting machine
  • connect to 3 DSLR cameras to take quality pictures of the shipments boxes and the items stored in them. We apply some image processing on these pictures to detect items, barcodes and documents. We wrote an article about these that you can find here.

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.
