At DZB Leiden they help employees who have, for one reason or another, difficulty participating in the labour market. The challenge for employees tasked with sorting the bolts for KLM’s aircraft engines was that the only tool they had to do the job was a magnifying glass - not very efficient and extremely time consuming.
Dockbite developed a visual aid for DZB that, together with the employees, is capable of recognizing all the different types of bolts. We developed an app that uses a tablet's digital camera. Using an object recognition algorithm in the app, it can recognize, with 99.9% accuracy, which bolt has which type number.
We designed a set-up in which the tablet enables the employee to easily identify the bolts and then sort them into the right containers.
