In today’s world, warehouses and distribution centers need low-cost, inline, and above-the-belt systems to determine the precise dimensions of packages. These measurements are needed for a wide range of applications, including: to automate the matching of client parcel information with measured data, to calculate transport capacities and optimize vehicle loads, and to optimize the internal flow of goods.

Low cost solutions are needed for warehousing and distribution applications to determine precise dimensions of packages. Shape Ape is perfect for high-resolution dimensioning of both cuboidal and non-cuboidal items. Shape Ape does not use expensive 3D laser scanners, but rather uses high-resolution commodity 3D sensors that were developed for the reliable tracking of the human body in the gaming and entertainment industries. As a result, Shape Ape meets price points for a wide range of applications in warehousing and distribution.
