Position Imaging Inc., a provider of package logistics and asset tracking, has introduced iPickup RooM, an entry-level system that provides the resident access and pickup convenience features as its computer vision predecessor, the Smart Package Room, according to a press release.
The new system provides constant monitoring within the package room and manages items in the room by type (flat, parcel or oversized), using area signage for guidance.
The system uses an intuitive display screen mounted outside the iPickup RooM entrance, where couriers gain access to the room and scan labels for package registration. Once the system “reads” the package label and the courier or concierge places the package in the room, the system automatically associates the package location with the resident, then notifies the resident that their package has arrived and sends a QR and PIN code for room access.
The resident scans the QR code or enters the PIN code from their mobile device to enter the room. Labeling and audio cues guide the resident to the package location and a complete audit trail of the entire process is created for security and accountability.
