Stöcklin AGVs: Safe driving with ELOshield
Mobile warning system prevents collisions between industrial vehicles
The use of automated guided vehicles (AGVs) in intralogistics is on the increase - and at a fast pace. The reasons for this are many and varied: more digitisation and the growth of automised processes require new approaches to certain issues in the industry. Evolving customer expectations and the demand for quicker delivery times for example are influencing the future development of sustainable logistics concepts.
AGVs play an integral role here as they guarantee the reliable flow of materials – 24/7. Our innovative protective shield ELOshield keeps these vehicles safe when they are on the move.
Fully autonomously operated vehicles
Using a warning system is eminently sensible as the operation of AGVs can not only present a number of challenges but can also give rise to safety risks. Accidents involving warehouse personnel or collisions with other vehicles can happen quickly if safety measures are inadequate, particularly if the AGVs or their loads are at a low level and therefore easily overlooked by a forklift driver.
for warehouse employees
In order to additionally prevent accidents between AGVs and the workforce in the warehouse, personnel carry a smartphone-sized personal module with them. This enables the AGV to automatically recognise their presence if they approach it. It then brakes to prevent any further danger.
Warning system ideal for mixed fleets
These examples illustrate the decisive advantages of ELOshield: the driver assistance system can be installed on different industrial vehicles, forklift trucks or cobots of any type, any age and any drive type. It is also OEM independent. In short: this enables ELOshield customers to unify their mixed fleets and ensure that all vehicles meet the same safety standards.
