Positioning autonomous transport systems
optoNCDT 1220 sensors are used for collision-free positioning of automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) with Mecanum wheels.
The compact laser sensors with 500 mm measuring range are integrated onto the AGV/AMR. They precisely measure the distance of the AGV/AMR from a metric code tape, which is then evaluated by a PGV camera. The distance value determined by the laser sensors enables the PGV camera to reliably read the code tape and decode the exact position of the AGV/AMR. This in turn enables collision-free, lateral docking of the AGV/AMR.
- Independent of the construction of the AGV/AMR – universal use
- Replacement of the AGV/AMR for service purposes, without having to calibrate the stop positions
- Precise sensor for non-contact and wear-free measurements with large measuring range for reliable position detection
- Slim and robust sensor design – ideal for integration
