Collision avoidance using ultrasonic sensors

SICK ultrasonic technology can be used to reliably detect objects in the vehicle path. In contrast to optical scanners, ultrasonic sensors detect objects regardless of their surface quality. With scanning ranges of up to 8 m, the sensors of the UM18 and UM30 product families are predestined for use in automated guided vehicles.
