Description of assignment

Vanderlande is a market-leading, global partner for logistic process automation. One of Vanderlande’s key products is the loopsorter which exists in a so-called crossbelt sorter a helix sorter that Vanderlande develops and produces. See also:Vanderlande CROSSORTER - YouTube.
The crossbelt sorter efficiently handles a diverse range of products by directing them into designated chutes. As the dimensions of these chutes significantly influence the layout of the sorting facility, optimizing them (in size) is crucial.To achieve optimal chute design, a deeper understanding of parcel properties and parcel sorting dynamics is necessary. This entails gathering essential data from parcels, such as weight and dimensions. Streamlining this data collection requires the development of a machine capable of accurately determining parcel properties.
