CIC Partners with Position Imaging to Automate Package Management

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC), an international leader in shared space for the global innovation community, founded by Tim Rowe, announced today that The Smart Package Room® will be opening at its 245 Main location in Cambridge, MA.

The Smart Package Room® solution uses Position Imaging’s new advanced Amoeba™ computer vision technology to enable simple, intuitive, and secure package handling. CIC is a leading shared workspace service company that has created a community of entrepreneurs with more startups than anywhere else on the planet; a perfect location to launch the first non-residential Smart Package Room.

“We are constantly looking at ways to provide world class solutions for our residents. Smart Package Room is a great fit for our goals and for our community of innovative-minded entrepreneurs,” said Tim Rowe, CEO, CIC.

After the package is delivered, this self-service automated package room uses AI-based computer vision technology to map out where the package is located from the moment it is placed and tracks it even if moved while in the room. When delivered to the room, a notification is sent to the package recipient with a photo of the package and an entry pin for room access. Once the unique entry pin is entered, it displays a digital map of the room with the recipient’s package illuminated to show its exact location, then verbal instructions and light guidance directs the user directly to their package, even alarming when the wrong package happens to be taken.

“CIC is the kind of organization that we try to align ourselves with as we launch this new package management solution. Tim and his team have been terrific to work with on this new installation and use case. It is fitting that we introduce our first non-residential use case for Smart Package Room at such an innovation driven community like CIC. We are very excited about this new use case and relationship,” said Ned Hill, CEO, Position Imaging.

Smart Package Room and its underlying Amoeba Computer Vision technology is another unique innovation from Position Imaging.
