- Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) and other autonomous vehicles need vision to see if their path is clear or if there is an obstacle in their way.
- Dangerous machines and areas must be contained and protected to ensure personnell are not at risk or harmed.
Like all Hokuyo laser devices these scanners use a time of flight principle to calculate the distance and time from any obstacle that enters the device's field of view, this could be a person stepping infront of an AGV or a hand entering an area infront of a dangerour machine. With simple set up, zone creation and a Master/ Slave function these Safety Laser Scanners are the perfect solution to create a safe working environment.
These Hokuyo devices guarantee peace of mind and increased productivity throughout a warehouse or busy factory.
The Hokuyo UAM-05LP is the smallest and most compact safety laser scanner on the market and has the performance capabilities of much larger and more expensive competition scanners. It's lightweight and small size means it is a good choice for projects that require a scanner to be close to the floor or in a confined space, such as a corner of a room.
