In localization applications, sensors determine the absolute position of mobile platforms moving about freely in their vicinity. Suitable solutions include grid localization using 2D codes as well as free localization via reflectors or surrounding contours.
Sensors and solutions for controlling and navigating all kinds of motions of mobile platforms. The solutions range from encoders, e.g. for odometry tasks, through inclination sensors, to motor feedback systems.
Line guidance is a simple, inexpensive and common way of navigating mobile platforms. A sensor detects and tracks a pattern or line on the floor so that the mobile platform is guided within the given lane.
