Stöcklin AGVs: Safe driving with ELOshield
Mobile warning system prevents industrial vehicle collisions
The use of automated guided vehicles (AGVs) in intralogistics is on the rise - and at a fast pace. There are various reasons for this: more digitization and the growth of automated processes require a new approach 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 strongly recommended as the operation of AGVs can not only present a number of challenges, but can also increase safety risks. Accidents involving warehouse staff 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
Additionally, in order to prevent accidents between AGVs and the staff in the warehouse, employees carry a smartphone-sized personal module with them. This enables the AGV to automatically recognize their presence when they approach. It then brakes to prevent any further risk.
Warning system ideal for mixed fleets
These examples illustrate the crucial 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.
