MicroVision, Inc. (NASDAQ:MVIS), a leader in innovative ultra-miniature projection display technology, today announced that it has agreed to supply customized PicoP ® display modules to UPS, a global leader in logistics, transportation, package delivery and freight forwarding. UPS handles millions of packages in more than 200 countries and territories every day. MicroVision’s technology is part of a new package guidance application aimed at increasing processing efficiency in real-time package sorting and routing that UPS is deploying in a facility in the United States. PicoP ® display technology was selected for this application due to its ability to operate in industrial environments and its distinguishing performance characteristics including brightness, infinite focus, and variable field of view. The projection module will be paired with UPS scanning systems to improve package sorting processes. “We are very pleased to be supplying custom PicoP display modules to UPS for its package routing application,” Alexander Tokman, MicroVision president and CEO, said. “As the leader in logistics handling high volumes of packages every day, UPS is the ideal company to deploy advanced projection capabilities to improve package handling processes. We are confident that MicroVision’s PicoP display technology will aid in accuracy and increased efficiency.” MicroVision has designed a custom display module for UPS that projects information directly onto packages. Because the size of packages coming through the sorting process vary greatly, the infinite focus and variable field of view projection of PicoP display technology make it well-suited for this application. The overall brightness of the laser-based projector module provides easy visibility for the package handlers.
