Global logistics systems operate at large scales that make real-time visibility of individual assets difficult to maintain. A paper by a team of American researchers proposes the integration of an unmanned aerial system (UAS) in a global logistics system, highlighting best practices for its potential inclusion.
UAS have been introduced to logistics systems to support warehouse, freight, and logistics operations, cutting the time and labor costs of conducting inventory. Such systems may use image processing and deep learning algorithms to fly without collisions, and "swarm" to share power and resources.
