The NAV-LOC’s defining feature is its ability to localize vehicles on the basis of natural surrounding contours. This is made possible by a 2D LiDAR sensor which supplies precise scan data. This data is then processed in the SIM2000ST CPU from SICK using a clever algorithm. The NAV-LOC thereby always delivers up-to-date data on the position and orientation of a vehicle without additional reflectors.
The exact position determination of mobile platforms and automated guided vehicles using NAV-LOC creates a good starting point for the development of vehicle navigations systems.
