Optical identification with the Smart Klaus assistance system

This is how the Smart Klaus assistance system ensures a reliable incoming goods inspection

The following applies to modern industry: It has to be fast! Mistakes? Are unwanted! But how can this be guaranteed for thousands of articles?

This cannot be guaranteed manually! This is where the digital assistance system comes into play: The Smart Klaus.

The camera-based image processing system Smart Klaus shows its strengths along the entire value chain:

  • Incoming goods
  • Optical Identification
  • Assembly
  • Final check
  • Commissioning
  • Outgoing goods

The human being is not a machine


The increasing complexity of articles overburdens the employees in the industry. There are many different articles, codes and individual customer requests. The products are quickly confused and errors creep into the entire production chain. 

Further problems are long search times for current article data. Employees do not want to make mistakes; they search in old documents or ask their colleagues. Here valuable time is lost.

Certain articles require expertise that not all of your employees have. Colleagues with specialist knowledge must be consulted for this. Your actual tasks cannot then be completed and time is lost.


This is how the optical identification with the Smart Klaus works


Your employees place the article on the desk under the camera. Within a few seconds the optical identification system recognizes the product. The software compares and checks previously defined features.


The smart Klaus uses the touch monitor to display the result of the optical identification: Article description, article number and a product picture (the data will be adapted on request).

If required, a label printer can also be integrated. After each part recognition, a label with article data is printed out and the product can be stored. The next employee immediately knows which article is involved.
