Smart glove: ŠKODA Logistics is focusing on future technology

› Industry 4.0: ŠKODA is preparing for production work of the future and is continuously testing state-of-the-art technology

› Intelligent glove: ProGlove optimises the supply of parts in ŠKODA Logistics

› Head of ŠKODA Brand Logistics, Jiří Cee: "The glove helps our team work more quickly, more efficiently and with virtually no errors."

 

Mladá Boleslav, 22 August 2016 – ŠKODA is preparing intensively for the forth industrial revolution. With the smart ProGlove industrial glove, the Czech car manufacturer is focusing on innovative future technology. Use of the glove facilitates and improves the work of ŠKODA Logistics.

"Nowadays, logistics is an important economic and competitive factor which contributes considerably to a car manufacturer’s success," said Jiří Cee, Head of ŠKODA Brand Logistics. "At ŠKODA, we therefore continuously test cutting-edge technology in order to improve the day-to-day work of our employees. The intelligent ProGlove helps our team to work more quickly, more efficiently and with virtually no errors," added Cee.

ŠKODA intends to bring the digital age onto their factory floors. The ProGlove is an electronic glove with a built-in scanner designed to improve work in logistics. This smart glove underwent an endurance test which convinced ŠKODA Logistics. "ProGlove proved itself to be the ideal solution for series production and has been used in our logistics ever since," said Cee.

Most importantly, the smart glove is designed to make day-to-day work easier and quicker for the wearer. The device shows, for example, whether the right part is being used and whether production steps are being correctly followed.

Like a traditional scanner, the glove can also capture data – but in one simple action and without any additional device. This allows goods to be registered quickly and easily. In addition, workflow becomes more ergonomic for the user: data collection or material testing are incorporated into natural hand movements.

Using the intelligent glove, codes can be read both vertically and horizontally. The code is then confirmed using the activation button on the index finger. The code is confirmed either by a sound or a vibration therefore preventing an incorrect code from being scanned.

ŠKODA Logistics currently employs over 3,000 members of staff who plan and ensure successful delivery of worldwide brand logistics.
