Empty tote detection with 2D LiDAR sensors

Even with precise designs and targeted optimizations, standardized picking processes cannot be 100% faultless. Among other things, this means that products can stay in totes when they shouldn’t. Pick errors of this nature challenge the logistics sector in multiple ways, from customer service to the effects on the material handling equipment. Modern omni-channel logistics networks are based on the knowledge of the exact amounts at each item location. Flexible, low-price and user-friendly TiM3xx 2D LiDAR sensors detect whether products have been left in totes. This makes it possible to report faults in the picking process before an order is sent with incorrect contents.

  • Following product families can be used
    • Incredibly compact, light, and economical sensor
    • Field evaluation using intelligent software algorithms
    • Configuration interface accessible from the side
      when the device is mounted
    • Low power consumption (typically 4 W)
    • TiM3xxS only: Certified to Machinery Directive 2006/42/EG and DIN EN ISO 13849-1:2015
