SPEEDCARGO partners with Microsoft to use 3D vision tech in logistics

SPEEDCARGO offers a suite of robotics and AI technologies for optimizing yield and increasing productivity in the logistics industry. Its suite of products for digitization, optimization, and automation reduces revenue leakage, maximizes operational efficiency, and improves productivity and business performance.

Suraj Nair, founder of SPEEDCARGO Technologies, said, “The global pandemic has accelerated the need for transformation in the logistics space. With the number of operational flights being reduced at a rate of 75 percent relative to pre-pandemic time and cargo volumes at nearly pre-pandemic levels, there is an immediate need for optimization. SPEEDCARGO is working closely with Microsoft to build a digital twin of the physical cargo, provide critical information and the building blocks for a digitized operational model.”

Microsoft’s Azure Depth Platform aims to democratize cloud-connected 3D vision via an ecosystem of semiconductors, independent hardware vendors (IHVs), independent software vendors (ISVs) and system integrators (Sis) building cameras, 3D vision skills and services. Combining Microsoft Time of Flight (ToF) depth sensing technology with the Azure intelligent Edge and intelligent cloud platforms is disrupting computer vision applications across multiple industries.

“3D sensing is the next wave of computer vision, which helps ISVs differentiate and disrupt their target markets. Our collaboration with SPEEDCARGO showcases the benefits for ISVs to use Microsoft 3D sensing in conjunction with Azure cloud platform,” said Cyrus Bamji, Partner Hardware Architect at Microsoft.
