Semi-Automated Mail Sortation

Overview

Barcodes are used to assure smooth and efficient movement of mail. Datalogic sensors and vision systems detect, size, weigh, and sort parcels at sorting facilities. After conveyors deliver parcels to personnel for sorting into sacks, the parcels are presented to the scanner which reads the code. Then a database lookup matches the parcels to correct sacks. The personnel then put the parcel into the sacks indicated by the display and light.
