Artificial intelligence in asparagus and berry sector with Fruit ONE
The Fruit ONE produce and navigation system has been specially developed for the asparagus and berry industry. Without much red tape or complexity, parties can now permanently check all sales and deliveries online with Fruit ONE. The system informs the user independently about minimum quantities, turnover and financial data.
During the development of Fruit ONE a special emphasis was placed on the system’s ease of use. Through extensive tests, in consultation with customers, a fail-safe system was developed. Even in the case of short-term network failures, all stored data will be transmitted automatically at a later date.
With its performance, Fruit ONE goes far beyond the possibilities offered by registration systems, because it forces permanent optimization and control of sales volumes. The robust, compact and easy-to-use Fruit ONE sales and navigation system consists of the following components:
- Fruit ONE Scale (Ohaus)
- Fruit ONE Mobile (mobile phone or tablet)
- Fruit ONE Central (server)
- Fruit ONE Web (Client)
The operation is intuitive and context-oriented.
The Fruit ONE center is the heart of the system. It includes all the components necessary to help navigate suppliers of goods between different locations via GPS. Furthermore, all product movements are registered, right up to the point of sale.
The system optimizes the transport routes of the goods as well as the corresponding sales through its artificial intelligence. In this case, state-of-the-art optimization technology has been employed. Thanks to the close collaboration between Gerd Thom GmbH and the DFKI (the German Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence) at the University of Saarbrücken, Fruit ONE developed a very innovative and powerful system.
Via a web-based system, the customer can change configurations or settings of master data from a PC or tablet (Fruit ONE Web) in a very simple way, no matter where they are.
Each driver is equipped with a Fruit ONE mobile phone for the delivery to the sales points. The functions of a route planner as well as all machine inputs and outputs are logged by the driver. All the sites and all delivery quantities are recorded and can be called up in real time.
