Abstract:
A typing off-loading and article sorting system to automatically separate different parcel types includes a feed conveyor, receiving conveyor, sorting conveyor, cameras and photoelectric eye. The overhead cameras detect the item size and whether it is cubic in nature and type and size of its footprint.
