Collision avoidance on stackers and reclaimers (crane boom)

Stackers and reclaimers with bucket-wheels at the boom tips are giant pieces of equipment with no eyes of their own. A 2D LiDAR sensor, such as the LD-LRS or LMS511, mounted on the boom optimizes the processes of material handling in outdoor stockpiles regardless of environmental and weather conditions. The sensor also prevents collisions between the bucket-wheel and objects on the ground or other booms.
