Make it easy on the eyes. When people have to interact with multiple devices or hunt through vast amounts of information, they're more likely to make mistakes. The Raymond Corp. tackled that problem by integrating information that previously had to be viewed on four separate devices in a single display. The new display unit lets forklift operators view Raymond's iWarehouse telematics functionality and toggle between lift truck operations information, a height-tilt indicator, and an operator camera display. Another example (released but not exhibited during Modex) is "Subway Platform," a new feature of Seegrid's fleet control system that displays estimated-time-of-arrival (ETA) projections at individual stations where its vision-guided vehicles retrieve or deliver materials. Instead of having to find that information on a large display for the entire fleet, workers now can view only the information that's directly relevant to their station.
