In a large warehouse, it is difficult to keep items organized, and many workers are needed to maintain this organization. With an AerNode, much of this work can be automated. AerNodes will automatically keep track of inventory and avoid wasted space, and the AerNode's modular nature also means that storage can expand as needed by adding additional storage modules. Some inventory can even become searchable: an employee could tell an AerNode they’re looking for a certain size screw or tool, and the container holding that item will be directly presented to them.
AerNodes can also integrate with other technologies. For instance, an AerNode can receive deliveries from rovers that move products across a warehouse floor. To make transportation even more efficient, the AerNode's API can be used to directly integrate conveyor belts with AerNodes. If automated robotic arms place items on these conveyor belts, then inventory management will be almost completely automated.
We also know that not every item is stored in the same way. Certain items need specialized storage conditions, which is why there are a variety of different storage modules for the AerNode. For instance, a moisture-controlled storage module is needed for moisture-sensitive equipment.
