Measuring Packages and Pallets at the Speed of Light

What’s New: Today, Intel introduced Intel® RealSense™ Dimensional Weight Software (DWS), a legal-for-trade-ready, volumetric-measurement solution with industry-leading accuracy and speed. Designed with Intel’s proprietary volumetric-measurement SDK and based on the Intel RealSense LiDAR Camera L515, the DWS solution will help transform dimensional measurement throughout the logistics industry.

“Intel RealSense Dimensional Weight Software expands our offering in the logistics and warehousing industry with an affordable, highly accurate measurement platform. DWS allows companies to enhance billing accuracy and increase efficiency in warehouse management through fast and accurate to-the-millimeter measurements.”

– Sagi Ben Moshe, Intel corporate vice president and general manager of Intel RealSense

How It Works: Intel DWS uses an Intel RealSense LiDAR Camera to scan and calculate the measurement and volume of an object in seconds, which allows for real-time decision-making across receiving, inventory management and shipping without any disruption to existing processes.

DWS is based on the world’s smallest hi-res LiDAR camera, the Intel RealSense L515. The L515 offers unparalleled depth quality with 23 million depth points per second, making DWS accurate at a near (0.8m) and far (4m) range. From boxes as small as 5 cm3 to full-size pallets, this flexible solution enables customers to tailor solutions based on their specific needs.

Why It’s Important: Accuracy and speed are paramount in the logistics industry, and with real-time access to the data calculated by Intel RealSense DWS, companies can save time and money through the digital transformation of previously manual tasks.

When object measurement and analysis is done manually, there is a risk of dimensioning inaccuracies and other human errors. Precise and automated volumetric measurements of shipments help keep track of the inventory and transportation processes with improved optimization.

Intel DWS enables companies to enhance billing accuracy, aids in warehouse management and helps increase workflow efficiencies through fast and accurate to-the-millimeter measurements. With customized Dimensional Measurement APIs from Intel RealSense DWS, companies can create systems to continuously manage inventory in a variety of ways, from quickly scanning items to understanding available quantities of a product.

How It is Optimized for Seamless Integration: Intel RealSense DWS is easy to integrate, working seamlessly with numerous platforms from Windows to Linux to Android. Depending on preference, DWS can be activated right out of the box or integrated with an existing enterprise system.

With one ready-to-use software library, Intel RealSense DWS can be customized across a variety of cases, allowing companies to build the perfect volumetric-measurement system based on individual needs.

Join the dimensional measurement revolution with the full version of Intel RealSense DWS, now available at $45 for a 1-year license.
