Collision Avoidance in Working Environments

Autonomous Mobility and Safety with smartmicro. McKinsey states that globally the automation of warehouses increased by more than 10% each year from 2015 to 2019 and is expected to double by 2026.

Due to continuously rising wages in the logistics sector as well as personnel shortages, the need for automation will continue to increase. Fully automated vehicles like (AGVs) or delivery robots offer lower operational costs and provide higher flexibility, they also have great potential for future efficiency improvements.

smartmicro's automotive high-performance off-the-shelf sensors enable collision avoidance and proximity warning for such automated, slow-driving vehicles. The warning zones within the field of view of our sensors are user-configurable, and the integrated height measurement increases the vehicle's efficiency. With a smartmicro sensor a delivery robot can measure the height of an obstacle and decide whether or not it can safely drive over it.
