Safe automation of automated guided vehicle systems

To guarantee efficient processes in a logistics or production environment, downtimes must be prevented. We stand at the side of manufacturers as partners, developing individual safety solutions for autonomous vehicles such as automated guided vehicles (AGV) and vehicle systems (AGVS).

Thanks to years of experience in the industry, we can help you implement your projects with our competence in consultancy, along with our safety components and complete solutions.

We'll make your AGVS safe!

When it comes to automating your automated guided vehicles (AGV) or vehicle systems (AGVS), rely on safety components and the complete solution comprising sensor technology, control technology and a security solution. This prevents unauthorised access to the AGVS. Of course, with our solutions you don't have to compromise on efficiency and cost savings. If required, we can also offer you the appropriate service to ensure standard-compliant implementation of your application in accordance with ISO 3691-4, with CE approval directly on site. So, as manufacturer and operator, what you get from us is the all-round package for your AGVS, immediately safe & secure.

The safety laser scanner PSENscan enables safeguarding and productive area monitoring of automated guided vehicle systems. PSENscan detects objects in the vehicle's path and provides maximum safety even at high speeds, without compromising on productivity. Up to 70 protected fields enable dynamic protective field modifications when cornering or driving around obstacles. The protected field is adjusted via direct evaluation of the encoder inputs in the laser scanner.

More about the safety laser scanner PSENscan

Detect, locate and navigate everything – safely!

The safety laser scanner PSENscan provides the distance data for localisation and navigation. The data can be used with the help of the C++ library and the ROS modules. Use it for your own SLAM algorithm (Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping). Maps of the environment are thus created for navigation and the AGV can avoid obstacles, for example. You benefit from a more dynamic and therefore safe implementation of mobile applications in production environments.

In the white paper on mobile robotics you'll find lots more information about using laser distance data for robot localisation.

Simply integrate and off you go!

When combined with safety laser scanners PSENscan, the modular safety relay myPNOZ and the control and signal devices PITestop and PITsign, you get a cost-optimised solution thanks to the mutually compatible components. The Firewall SecurityBridge ensures that no unauthorised person can access the mobile platform's internal IT network during operation. As well as safe automation, we also have a comprehensive package of services enabling us to help you with the safe operation of automated guided vehicle systems.

To the appropriate service

As our partner you'll benefit from:

  • Complete one-stop safety solution saves time and costs
  • Robust components enable high availability
  • Open interfaces for high flexibility
  • International conformity assessment, e.g. CE marking for AGVS and, if required, for the whole application, plus training and consulting
  • AGVS application aligned to the requirements of ISO 3691-4
