Detection of materials in outdoor applications

Steelworks frequently have outdoor storage areas. This is where 2D LiDAR sensors can simplify operations thanks to their very compact design and ability to reliably detect objects and measure distances. When mounted on mobile cranes, they can collect 2D contour data of raw materials and finished products and use this data to calculate volumes. The sensors are ideally suited for material detection in outdoor storage areas, and for careful handling of products because they provide collision protection for cranes and loads at the same time.
