Robot arm for sorting flats / packets

I&T Wish Robot arm for sorting flats / packets
(REF : W-0257)
Summary and Challenges Flats and packets are small mail items with different sizes and shapes. HKPost would like to adopt robot arm to sort the mail items into bins / drop bags by reading the mail information through barcode scanner / OCR.
Expected Outcome The robot arm shall quickly identify the delivery location of the mail items and then place them correctly into the right positions for further handling. The output shall be greater than current one.
Expected Trial Duration It is difficult to estimate the expected project duration without much information for the time being. However, HKPost would like to identify suitable I&T solutions and commence work as soon as possible to suit existing operational needs. The timeframe required is in FY20/21.
