Next-generation Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) are going to be autonomous. Compared to their fixed-route counterparts, these mobile robots can navigate through production environments without human intervention.
Statistics show a large number of accidents in industrial environments involving floor conveyors and industrial trucks. In many cases people are hurt or equipment is damaged. Due to its unrivaled field-of-view HemiStereo enables a 180° rear-view collision awareness with a single camera unit.
Real-time monitoring of inventory can be crucial to implement Lean production methods. Plus, knowledge about storage space fill-level improves efficiency of autonomous mobile robot (AMR) fleets by avoiding unnecessary transport actions.
In modern Smart Industry environments robots and humans must collaborate closer than ever. With accurate person posture detection and gesture recognition robots can react to human behavior more accurately and deliberately.
