Controller offers high speed, process security
and cost savings for order-picking processes

Munich, 18 July 2019 – nextLAP GmbH ( launches the world’s first 4G/5G pick-by-light application. The specialist in IoT-based production and logistics solutions thereby offers a plug-and-play solution that doesn’t require a traditional network infrastructure any longer. The resulting order-picking processes are faster, more flexible, efficient and cost-effective to implement, leading to significant savings in terms of time and costs. At its lab in Munich, nextLAP is currently working on a pilot version in collaboration with a leading automotive OEM and Vodafone.

As a provider of AI-based solutions for the digital management and automation of production and logistics processes, nextLAP’s solutions enable the digitisation and automation of all types of order-picking processes.

Thanks to 4G/5G connectivity, pick-by-light processes are faster and easier to implement, as they can be deployed whether or not a network infrastructure is in place.

New generation smartCONTROLLER makes production more efficient
Until now, the smartCONTROLLER developed by nextLAP, which forms the basis of the 4G/5G pick-by-light application, was connected to the production network via Wi-Fi 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz as well as by cable. The solution is now 4G/5G-ready. The shop floor gateway acts as a bridge between IIoT hardware on the shop floor and the nextLAP AI production process platform IP/1. This cloud-based platform, another product of nextLAP’s in-house development, is a data hub with real-time evaluation.

The smartCONTROLLER connects nextLAP’s proprietary IIoT hardware and is also plug-and-play-compatible with intelligent third-party hardware such as data glasses, scanners, cameras and driverless transport systems (DTS).
“The new 4G/5G-ready smartCONTROLLER makes pick-by-light applications faster and easier to implement, resulting in optimised production and logistics processes”, explains André Ziemke, Managing Director of nextLAP GmbH.
