3D LiDAR SENSOR FOR MOBILE MACHINES

MORE LAYERS OPEN UP MORE PERSPECTIVES

MRS1000-teaser

Driver assistance systems based on 3D LiDAR sensors (also 3D laser scanners) or 3D vision sensors from SICK reliably detect blind zones around mobile machines and warn the operator of potential sources of danger or accidents in good time. Beside intelligent 3D assistance systems with the Visionary-B 3D vision sensor, the MRS1000 3D LiDAR sensor provides navigation and maneuvering support. Continue reading

Driver assistance systems for harvesting vehicles

AUTONOMOUS PROCESSES FOR MORE YIELD

WGS

As Johann Wolfgang von Goethe once put it himself, “sowing is not as difficult as reaping”. Since then, much has changed owing to the motorization and mechanization of agriculture. And yet, harvesting crops is still an activity in which every helping hand is appreciated. Solutions for improving the efficiency in the harvesting process are therefore like a seed ready to flourish. One instance of this “technological seed” is the WGS (Windrow Guidance System) from SICK.   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 Vision Technology for Driver Assistance at Ports

Keeping an Eye on everything around the Reach Stacker

No matter what the weather, you will find countless reach stackers in use at every port. The rugged Visionary-B CV 3D vision sensor with snapshot technology by SICK supports reach stacker operators with their frequent maneuvering and reversing operations. To help with this, the sensor detects relevant objects in the vehicle’s environment and generates live images that appear on the monitor. At the same time, the sensor uses visual and acoustic signals to warn the driver of possible collisions in critical driving situations. A plug and play solution, the Visionary-B CV is a breeze to configure and operate, and is ready for use in a matter of moments.   Continue reading
