Personnel detection and machine safety
Since their introduction more than 30 years ago, automated guided vehicles (automated guided vehicles) are mobile, collaborative machines which share traffic routes with manned industrial trucks and persons. Reliable person detection systems are required to prevent danger to persons in these surroundings. Due to international standards such as DIN EN 1525 and ANSI B56.5, high requirements are placed on these systems. SICK safety laser scanners are the standard-compliant solution which can be integrated flexibly into vehicle design and adapts dynamically to the current direction of travel. SICK is the manufacturer which covers all areas of AGV safety with additional components for motion control, safe control and emergency stop operation.
