A new solution for precise, safe, robotic navigation in commercial applications is outlined.
The RSL 400 safety laser scanner not only ensures that automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are operated safely by means of protective and warning fields, but it also simultaneously captures the measurement values for the navigation software When the triangulation principle is used for navigation, AGVs are usually equipped with two different sensors: one for safety and one for navigation.
