Sensor solutions for mobile platforms: Environment perception and safety

During transportation mobile vehicles and carts have to be able to recognize and perceive their environment. This prevents collisions with objects or people, and ensures  safe and reliable process operations.





Collision avoidance

Every collision causes additional expenses due to machine downtimes. Single-beam photoelectric safety sensors, 2D and 3D sensors, give early, contact-free warnings against collisions and thus prevent them.
