Sensor solutions for mobile platforms: Load handling
A core function of mobile platforms is the transportation of goods. SICK offers a wide solutions portfolio for detecting, positioning and identifying goods.
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.
Sensors determine the dimensions of the load and its position on the mobile platform as well as in the storage locations.
Heliaphen: This robot cherishes 1500 plants
The robot moves outdoors along the paths between the plant holders, and detects, grips, weighs, photographs, and waters the holders automatically according to the instructions of the researchers, which they transmit directly from their workstations. All of these required functions are based on integrated equipment from SICK.
Parking in the future – intelligent sensors control autonomous parking robot
“We park for you!” That’s how easy it is to sum up the concept developed by Serva Transport Systems for Parking in the future. But even though this simple idea presents huge challenges in terms of the design and operation of transport systems, intelligent sensors can be used to solve the problem.
