On March 29, Renault Trucks informed that it has decided to start using drones in its axle plant in Lyon to overcome challenges and increase efficiency in inventory taking.
Renault Trucks Axle centre in Lyon Saint-Priest in France is now using a drone to perform inventory control operations, which, until now, have been carried out manually by an employee using binoculars.
Using built-in mapping features and a predetermined flight plan, the drone reads the barcodes on the pallets using three scanners on its front.
It can take an inventory of a location in six seconds, which is ten times quicker than with a manual system.
Photographs are also taken of each location, enabling any issues on pallets to be viewed easily.
