Drones are deployed for sustainable supply chain

ETH Zurich spinoff, Verity AG deploys a new fleet of drones primed to transform warehouse operations and support more sustainable supply chains. Demonstrating the value of fundamental research and its potential for a real-​world impact.

Warehouse distribution centers are a hub of activity as workers offload pallets and shift valuable, sometimes perishable, inventory from one place to the next. At the end of the day, when the incessant beeping of forklifts quiet and warehouse workers head home, Verity’s drone fleet buzzes to life. Packing its own lighting, software, and cameras, the Verity “night crew” navigates the floor to ceiling industrial shelves autonomously scanning barcodes and verifying digital inventory records.
