Digital, automated, and networked – this is the benchmark for Industry 4.0. But achieving this requires a large number of processes to be adapted. Manual identification processes in the warehouse and with respect to production supply, for example, are set to become a thing of the past. When it comes to warehouses served by forklift trucks, auto ID specialist IdentPro is now offering the solution – a world premiere based on the SICK LMS511 2D LiDAR sensor. Continue reading

Accident and collision awareness with the APS driver assistance system

LEOS-Teaser

Multimillion-dollar damage that occurs during aircraft ground handling leads to high insurance payouts every year. As a result, ground handling services are encumbered with higher insurance premiums. In order to avoid damage, Lufthansa LEOS GmbH relies on SICK’s experience in laser scanners when tugging aircrafts and is putting the APS driver assistance system from SICK to the test for its aircraft tractor fleet.   Continue reading

3D LiDAR sensor detects the penguin even in its black tails

LD-MRS-UAV_Drone_teaser

The darker the object, the harder it is to detect as the distance increases. But penguins in the Antarctic can now keep their black tailcoats on when a drone hovers overhead and the integrated laser scanner registers them. For researchers and scientists who map and count penguin colonies in order to collect urgently required information about the effects of global climate change, the combination of a laser scanner and flying robotics is a new technology that certainly receives a warm welcome.
