In view of the current developments regarding the spread of coronavirus KLU will cancel or postpone all events on KLU campus until the end of May. This includes Bootcamp: Digitalization in logistics March 25-27. The event will be postponed. More information will follow in due time.
Join us for the KLU Boot Camp 2020
Using visual recognition for intelligent parking space management and effective warehouse management are the main focus for this year’s Boot Camp Digitalization in Logistics, hosted by Kühne Logistics University (KLU) in collaboration with IBM, Hamburger Hochbahn AG, Logistik-Initiative Hamburg and Jungheinrich AG.
Smart Mobility – intelligent parking space management
Human mobility is a necessity in today’s world. It has a significant impact on both quality of life and the economy of modern societies. Mobility innovation has become a hot topic in managing traffic jams and simplifying how we utilize space in our cities. In the long run, revolutionizing traffic systems will be in necessary in order to meet the challenges of increasing mobility flows and the growing demand for smart cities. As part of intelligent parking space management, parking facilities will need to provide more service to their users, for example detecting and guiding drivers toward free parking spaces, and offering more dynamic pricing.
Inventory Logistics – effective warehouse management
Warehouses and distribution centers are an essential part of the supply chain of a company. The challenge is that several potential error sources can be found in warehouses. If these can be avoided or reduced, and a company is able to control its warehouse, more focus can be placed on providing customers with the best possible service. For example, registering goods in stock quickly and fulfilling orders accurately are absolutely crucial. That said, how can it ensured that articles from an order are being selected correctly and that damaged goods are being detected and removed? How can inventory from the list be cross-checked with what’s actually in stock? This is where using image recognition technology finds its way into the warehouse.
Join our 3-day student workshop and tackle the following questions!
- How can intelligent parking space management support the smart city?
- How can work flows in warehouses be optimized and errors reduced?
- How does image recognition technology work?
Working on authentic case studies
Over the course of the event, you will be learning about the demand for the technology of this year’s bootcamp topic: visual recognition. In addition, you will be introduced to specific problem cases where visual recognition would be a viable solution. In this context, you will be developing new models for applying visual recognition in various areas pertaining to intelligent parking space management and effective warehousing.
Exchange ideas with experts from the field
The Hamburger Hochbahn AG, one of the most innovative mobility service providers in Germany, will set one part of the cases in cooperation with Logistik-Initiative Hamburg.
The other case provider is the Jungheinrich AG, one of the internationally leading brands in intralogistics.
IBM’s Travel & Transport specialists will supply you with the necessary tools needed to develop prototypes for customer-oriented solutions. You will gain access to the IBM cloud for this.
