Human presence detection for automated guided vehicles with safety laser scanners

Safety laser scanners have prevailed worldwide for the safe detection of people around automated guided vehicles. SICK offers a complete product portfolio with a variety of different scanning ranges and fittings to suit any format of vehicle. Up to 128 freely-definable protective fields allow for fine-tuned adjustment of person detection to the current driving scenario — this lends the vehicle high flexibility and reduces downtime. Forward warning fields trigger speed reduction as soon as a person or an object is detected. The vehicle spots immediately when the protective field is reached.
