wenglor Sensors make autonomous driving become reality

The spanish expert for intralogistics ASTI Sistemas revolutionizes autonomous driving of forklift trucks in logistics centres worldwide with the application of WinTec Transit Time Sensors P1KY001 - and therewith shapes the future of logistics decisively.

In order to direct the Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) without colliding and to safely load and unload pallet materials, the compact photoelectronic wenglor sensors were integrated into the narrow fork cone ends as well as the metal chassis.

The wenglor High-Performance Distance Sensor P1KY001 offers crucial advantages, which totally convinced the customer: On the one hand, the housing format of only 22 x 32 x 12 mm has the perfect size for the integration in the fork cone ends. On the other hand it provides a market-wide unique switching distance from 0 to 1.000 mm in combination with a breathtaking performance on black or glossy plastic surfaces. "Thanks to the world’s smallest transit time sensor from wenglor, automated guided vehicles already became reality. They increase efficiency and safety in huge logistics centres and similarly reduce labor costs", explains the General Manager of wenglor Spain, Xavier Roig. "We’re very proud to be part of this innovation and to once more being able to appear as a pioneer for a whole industry."
