A modern information technology application that realizes the intelligenceamr robotics and unmanned process of goods from warehousing and storage to packaging and sorting. At present, many e-commerce giants at home and abroad have established unmanned warehouses to solve problems such as cargo or parcel sorting. The unmanned warehouse is a complex project containing multiple subsystems, which requires close cooperation and efficient collaboration among all hardware and software participants to achieve organic integration and gradual optimization of the logistics system. With the improvement of artificial intelligence (AI) and robot equipment technology, the application of big data technology, it is expected that the main components of the unmanned warehouse will become even more sophisticated. Some of the main components are composed of software, while other components are composed of hardware. Let's learn about the characteristics and advantages of these two types of components in this article.

There are various types of automated equipment for handling, picking, and packaging.

In the second place, there is the software, mainly warehouse management systems and warehouse control systems.

In order for unmanned warehouse operations to be efficient, the warehouse management system must be implemented correctly. In most warehouses, people and machines work together, so the warehouse management system not only manages personnel, but also a large number of robots and goods, resulting in the integration of people, machines, and materials.

The WCS always coordinates the storage, transfer of goods, picking, packaging and other business links, dynamically adjusting the business wave and business execution order in accordance with the busy business of different warehouse nodes. Also, the WCS needs to do the action instructions sent to the WMS after they are completed, and the WMS also stores the memory at this time.

WCS receives instructions from WMS and schedules the warehouse equipment to fulfill business needs. WCS needs to support flexible docking warehouse equipment of various types and manufacturers, and can calculate the optimal execution action. WCS is the master valve for all equipment control, and needs to allocate and control each machine and equipment, such as calculating the shortest driving path for robots, balancing equipment action flow, etc., so as to support the efficient operation of warehouse equipment. Another function of WCS is to monitor the operation status of the equipment on site at all times, and to quickly alert maintenance personnel when problems arise.

Designed to achieve the effect of unmanned warehouse operations, the unmanned warehouse integrates warehouse business, equipment selection, and software system customization.
