Motion Mining

Motion Mining - The revolutionary way to analyse and optimize your manual order picking processes, fully automated. Our automated process analysis identifies potentials for process optimization and supports you in maximizing your process efficiency while minimizing the physical strain for your employees.

MotionMining process analysis


By using mobile motion sensors together with Bluetooth Beacons and with help of deep neural networks we are able to identify activities within the manual order picking process and quantify them to discover potentials for optimization, decrease process times and reduce unhealthy workloads.

Motion Mining uses Beacons and Wearables

Use Cases

There are various applications which can be tackled by Motion Mining. Your manual processes can be analyzed and optimized with respect to their efficiency, the work safety as well as process ergonomics can be improved and finally the sensors allow for human-machine interaction.
