The scanner allows AGV systems to navigate safely through outdoor industrial environments. Using outdoor-safeHDDM scanning technology, it works safely and reliably in sun, rain, snow, or fog, thus closing a gap in the automation of industrial processes. Current safety laser scanners enable humans and machines to work safely alongside one another in industrial environments by reliably protecting stationary and mobile applications; this unit allows certified safety sensor technology to be used reliably in outdoor applications too. Ruggedness under varying weather conditions comes from outdoor-safeHDDM scanning technology that enables the unit to work without errors when exposed to sunlight with an illumination intensity of up to 40,000 lux. In addition, an intelligent software algorithm detects rain and snow, filtering out these environmental influences. For example, rain up to a precipitation intensity of 10 mm/h can be filtered out. Even in fog with a meteorological visual range of up to 50 m, the scanner detects all obstacles with total reliability, due to its special fog function. The result is that AGV systems will be able to perform tasks outdoors with no physical partitions and without having to significantly lower their speed.
