09-05-2018

PepsiCo is interested in learning more about the range of emerging packaging technologies to support scan-based product identification using image based scanners.

All AIPIA members offering services with the specifications below, are requested to reply to Eef de Ferrante (eef@aipia.info). Do NOT reply to this mail.

The applications that are being considered by PepsiCo for use of these technologies include the following:

  • Tracking of product movement at throughout the supply chain by manufacturers and retailers.
  • Automated, robotics-based tracking of shelf inventory in a traditional retail environment.
  • Improved product scanning efficiency for retail point-of-sale check out.
  • Enhanced mobile scanning capability to drive consumer-based mobile commerce.

The proposed technologies should consider the following:

  • Varied solutions including image recognition and data carrier-based image scanning.
  • Applications for both primary consumer packaging and secondary logistics packaging although differentiated technologies for primary vs. secondary packaging can be presented.
  • Improvements in scanning accuracy, speed, and ease of use relative to current scanning technologies (e.g., laser 1D barcode scanning).
  • Readiness of the technology to scale in a large commercial environment.

This is a unique chance for AIPIA members to get in direct contact with PepsiCo on the highest level. Please contact Eef de Ferrante (eef@aipia.info)
