  • Publication number: 20200410414
    Abstract: A workflow management system for managing the storage, retrieval, and transport of items in a warehouse includes a voice-directed mobile terminal. The system also includes a server computer in communication with the voice-directed mobile terminal. The server computer includes a tasking module for transmitting task data to the voice-directed mobile terminal. The server computer also includes a workflow-analysis module for generating, based at least in part upon an analysis of workflow dialog between the voice-directed mobile terminal and the user, performance data relating to the performance of tasks associated with the storage, retrieval, and/or transport of the items.

  • Patent number: 10810529
    Abstract: Systems and methods for creating and editing an inspection plan and directing an inspector through an inspection are provided. An exemplary system, according to one implementation, comprises a mobile computing device and a server computer. The mobile computing device is configured to communicate audible prompts to an inspector and receive audible replies from the inspector. The server computer is configured to store an inspection plan comprising a sequence of inspection steps, translate each of the inspection steps of the inspection plan into audible prompts, transmit the audible prompts to the mobile computing device, receive the audible replies from the mobile computing device, and translate the audible replies into a set of inspection results.

  • Patent number: 10529335
    Abstract: An auto-complete method for a spoken complete value entry is provided. A processor receives a possible complete value entry having a unique subset, prompts a user to speak the spoken complete value entry, receives a spoken subset of the spoken complete value entry, compares the spoken subset with the unique subset of the possible complete value entry, and automatically completes the spoken complete value entry to match the possible complete value entry if the unique subset matches the spoken subset. The spoken subset has a predetermined minimum number of characters.

  • Patent number: 10181321
    Abstract: A portable terminal has a network interface that receives a set of instructions having a sequence of at least one location and audio properties associated with the at least one location from a server. An audio circuit receives audio signals picked up by a microphone and processes the audio signals in a manner defined by the audio properties associated with the at least one location. A speech recognition module receives processed signals from the audio circuit and carries out a speech recognition process thereupon.

  • Publication number: 20170061961
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and devices of a voice-directed inspection system that supports multiple inspectors in the inspection of business assets are described. Inspection plans for large and complex business assets can involve several steps. It is advantageous to split large inspection plans into non-overlapping sections to allow multiple inspectors to perform concurrent inspections. Such sectionalizing is also useful in training new inspectors.
