Fulfillment specialist Montapacking is experimenting with Microsoft's mixed reality glasses Hololens in its 10, 000 m2 warehouse.

The glasses project visuals, animations data or directions on the lens for the wearer. In the case of a warehouse, order picking can be used, but also for more complex matters.

Previously, Montapacking already experimented with Google Glass. This also lays a data layer across the real world to make the carrier work more efficiently.

"No replacement of man by a robot, but a collaboration between the two." That is the future according to Edwin van der Ham, director of Montapacking. "Robotisation often means setting up limits. The smallest deviation of a product in our warehouse may be a cause for confusion for a robot. The human mind, on the other hand, is flexible and dynamic, certainly in combination with the HoloLens. "

He thinks that AR glasses will produce a landslide in the fulfillment practice.

His company serves 360 web shops with thousands of orders every day. Van der Ham bought a warehouse in Oosterhout early this year.
