Empty bay detection

Before a load carrier is stored on a shelf, it is first necessary to check whether the allocated storage location is empty. Besides being able to detect different object colors, it is also necessary to support single-depth or double-depth storage. Distance sensors and laser scanners offer reliable solutions for this task.
