A core function of mobile platforms is the transportation of goods. SICK offers a wide solutions portfolio for detecting, positioning and identifying goods.




Load detection

Sensors detect the presence of goods, check for empty shelves or the correct alignment on the mobile platform towards the freight. The solutions range from simple detection sensors, through measuring devices, to 2D LiDAR sensors.

Detection with Photoelectric sensors

Detection with Ultrasonic sensors

Detection with Mid range distance sensors

Detection with TiM5xx 2D LiDAR sensor

Identification and tracking

SICK offers a comprehensive portfolio of all commonly used identification technologies. Scalable solutions for 1D and 2D bar codes as well as RFID technologies are available.

Identification using fixed mount bar code scanners

Identification using image-based code readers

Identification using RFID

Identification using magnetic-coded tags
