Adlink IoT Solutions and Technology will show off its Vortex Edge solution for smart packages and pallets at a “gamified” stand at Pack Expo in Chicago next week.

At stand #7362 in the expo’s east hall, Adlink will let attendees find out first-hand how it makes packages and pallets talk to each other for warehouse distribution, in an interactive exhibit featuring games and competitions.

“We want people to be able to really see and experience for themselves how Edge IoT gets every logistical stage talking to each other — packages, pallets, warehouse management systems, clouds, ERPs, and warehouse employees,” said Lawrence Ross, GM Adlink IoT. “What better way to demonstrate intelligent warehouse logistics at the Edge than by getting attendees involved directly?”

According to Adlink, its Edge solution combines hardware, real-time data streaming software, and microservices to make packages and pallets intelligent. “Vortex Edge with vision microservices has the ability to quickly solve vision-based IoT initiatives, reducing incorrectly shipped packages, theft, and shrink while increasing productivity and warehouse worker safety, and improving ergonomics.

“They can detect where they’re supposed to be and when they’re supposed to be there in real-time, yielding improved warehouse logistics and ultimately improved customer satisfaction,” the company said.

Pack Expo International will be held in Chicago, Illinois, from October 14-17.
