Collision Protection for Shuttles with Long-Range Laser Distance Sensors in Logistics Centers
In logistics centers, shuttle systems must automatically deliver goods from the warehouse to production. Long-range laser distance sensors with wintec integrated on the front detect in advance end positions or forward-moving shuttles in the field of vision up to ten meters ahead so that shuttles can slow down or stop. In order to connect buildings to each other, they pass through transparent pipes outdoors. Neither sunlight nor reflective surfaces influence the switching behavior of sensors equipped with wintec.
