SICK automated guided vehicle system sensor

Tuesday, 16 August, 2016 |Supplied by:SICK Pty Ltd

SICK offers a product portfolio for automated guided vehicle (AGVs) and system applications, including laser scanners that enable AGVs and AGVSs to navigate and determine positions, as well as safety laser scanners designed to protect people and prevent collisions.

Determining object positions and measuring distances are tasks that are equally well suited to this equipment. With barcode reading systems attached to AGVs and AGVSs, or RFID technology, it is also possible to identify goods and storage places.

Safety technology from the company ensures that AGVs and AGVSs offer protection in line with national and international standards. The equipment available covers everything from small carts (automated guided carts or AGCs), some of which only move in one direction, to large-scale AGVs featuring field switching that operates dynamically according to the vehicle’s speed, direction and task.

With safety controllers, reliable and rugged components such as safety laser scanners and encoders can be combined to form a good safety solution.
