Honeywell’s vehicle mount computer drives increased warehouse productivity and safety

Honeywell Scanning & Mobility has introduced a new vehicle mount technology designed to improve safety and productivity in warehouse environments.

Now available in Australia and New Zealand, Honeywell’s new Thor CV31 vehicle mount computer features the latest computing technology in a compact enclosure to minimise driver obstruction in warehouse operations. The computer is designed specifically for installation in forklifts as well as various warehouse vehicles.

Tony Repaci, Country Manager, ANZ, for Honeywell Scanning & Mobility explains that warehouse managers are responsible for efficiency, productivity and profit gains in a highly competitive supply chain industry. Honeywell’s CV31 vehicle mount computer helps warehouses deliver these performance gains, offering the additional benefits of future-proofed technology and ensuring a high level of workplace safety for employees.

The CV31 is well suited to warehouse operations, including cold storage environments because it displays supply chain workflow information within easy view and reach of drivers, without obstructing them. Driver visibility is improved by more than 20 percent when compared to other devices.

Key features of Honeywell’s CV31 vehicle mount computers include 30-minute battery backup and ignition control boosting driver productivity by eliminating the need for reboots and idle time reconnecting following vehicle battery swaps; true multi-modal device capable of handling complex voice, screen and scan-intensive applications; support for Vocollect voice-directed workflows enabling ‘hands-free, eyes-up’ driving; near-field communication (NFC) technology easing headset pairing using Vocollect TouchConnect; and Microsoft Windows Embedded Compact 7 operating system.

The CV31 is a drop-in replacement for the predecessor model CV30, offering compatibility with existing mounts, keyboards, accessories and scanners, and helping preserve the warehouse’s investments.
