Precision is key when it comes to the automated pick-up of dollies with an automated guided vehicle system (AGV system). The fine positioning of the AGV system requires the exact identification of the relative place and position of the dolly. The Dolly Positioning SensorApp provides the data needed for this purpose. It runs directly on the Visionary-T AP 3D vision sensor from SICK. The measured values required to automatically pick up the dolly are pre-processed and evaluated on the sensor, then transmitted to the control of the automated guided vehicle system. The Dolly Positioning SensorApp is based on the SICK AppSpace concept and can be loaded on the sensor as a complete, application-specific Key App.
