Avoiding collisions using safety laser scanners

The usable area of cleanrooms represents a significant cost factor. By using flexibly arranged protective fields on automated guided vehicles (AGV) – even at changing speeds – it is possible to optimally utilize the available working area. The control data for this is supplied by two DFS60 incremental encoders mounted on the AGV. Using this information, the microScan3 safety laser scanner dynamically adjusts its protective fields. This protects the workers and enables collisions with other vehicles to be avoided.
