Augmented reality may become a practical tool for the shipping and mailing industry. A test using “smart glass” eyewear to visually pick packages and route them quickly will take place later this year.  The pilot program is projected to increase a 25% increase in efficiency during the picking process currently being managed with handheld devices.

In a statement published on 26 January, DHL said: “The pilot proved that augmented reality offers added value to logistics and resulted in a 25% efficiency increase during the picking process.”
