Safe automation of automated guided vehicle systems

A man next to an AGVS in production

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 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 that your application is implemented in compliance with the standard 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.

Collision protection for human and AGVS

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 productivity. Up to 70 protected fields enable the protected field to be adjusted dynamically when cornering or driving around obstacles. Adjustment of the protected field is performed by directly analysing the encoder inputs in the laser scanner.

More about the safety laser scanner PSENscan

Detect, localise and navigate it all – safely!

The safety laser scanner PSENscan provides the distance data for localisation and navigation. The data can be used directly via the C++ Library or as ROS modules. Use it for your own SLAM algorithm (Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping). Maps of the environment are thus created for navigation, allowing the AGV system to 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!

The combination of safety laser scanner PSENscan, modular safety relay myPNOZ and the control and signal devices PITestop and PITsign provides a cost-optimised solution thanks to mutually compatible components. The SecurityBridge firewall 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 lead to high availability
  • Open interfaces for enhanced flexibility
  • International conformity assessment, e.g. CE marking for the AGVS and for the entire application where necessary, as well as training and consulting
  • Aligning the AGVS application with the requirements of ISO 3691-4
