Detection and position determination for pallet pick-up using an app

Automated storage and removal of loads, particularly at great heights, requires precise detection of the storage space and load carrier. The 3D snapshot technology of the Visionary-T AP makes it possible to measure the detected room volume without moving the sensor. The Pallet Pocket Detection SensorApp then determines the coordinates of the pallet pockets based on this 3D measurement data. No additional computing unit is needed as application-specific applications can be run directly on the device. The resulting target coordinates and other sensor information can be easily integrated into the control of the automated guided vehicle, thereby supporting precise load transfer into the high-bay area.
