Digitalization Meets Automation

Virtual walks through facilities

Daniel Fricker, who is responsible for the Engineering Mechanics Department and development, is    working with his team to implement the next major step in digitizing our intralogistics systems. The first subprojects to reach this goal have  already been realized. Gilgen Logistics AG has, for instance, already opted for augmented reality in its sales process. “Augmented reality allows us to present to potential customers the facilities they want, with their full configurations, using 3D to walk them through the facility directly on site. This technology also makes it possible to project expansions directly into an existing facility, allowing customers to visualize them better,” Fricker explained.
