Looking back and ahead
In fall, huge mountains of sugar beets pile up at Pfeifer & Langen with headquarters in Cologne. One of the leading sugar producers in Europe is supplied with millions of beets during the “Sugar Beet Harvest” campaign. The seemingly endless delivery by huge trucks and redistribution by wheel loaders creates a huge amount of logistical effort. In order to increase collision avoidance safety for reversing wheel loaders and workers at the beet plate reloading point, the sugar producer, in close cooperation with the RCI professional association, decided on the sharp eye of the Visionary-B CV 3D driver assistance system from SICK.
