Manual order picking is an important part of distribution. Many techniques have been proposed to improve pick efficiency and accuracy. Previous studies compared pick-by-HUD (Head-Up Display) with pick-by-light but without the explicit pick confirmation that is typical in industrial environments. We compare a pick-by-light system designed to emulate deployed(More)
Order picking accounts for over 50% of the annual $150 billion spent in warehouse operations in the United States. 80% of order picking is performed manually. We compare the industry default of unassisted paper-list picking and three techniques augmented with weight checking: pick-by-light, pick-by-HUD (head-up display), and a combination of light and HUD.(More)
In this paper the outcomes from an honours project to design, build and control a self-balancing electric unicycle are presented. The design of the mechanical and electrical components is discussed, followed by a derivation of the dynamics of a generic unicycle. A linear control strategy to stabilise the unicycle is implemented on the physcial system and a(More)
