You can get more out of your industrial trucks – data is the key. Data allows you to record, analyze and optimize travel paths or movements of goods and material at your company. This allows you to use your autonomous and manually operated industrial trucks better and more efficiently.
Autonomous mobile robots such as the Open Shuttle and manually guided industrial trucks provide an enormous reduction of internal logistics work. Imagine that you could digitize all trips, optimize vehicle use and on top of that increase safety. Our innovative solution allows you to do exactly that – precisely adjusted to your needs and quickly ready for use since no complex system integration is needed.
Optimize fleet management
Too much traffic on some warehouse or production paths? Critical driving patterns at intersections with poor visibility? Frequent damage from collisions? These problems can be solved – but only if you know what causes them. The 5G Suite can give you this information: Sensors on the vehicles send data about their position, speed, etc. that is available to be evaluated or analyzed with results that are available quickly. There are less backups and collisions, damage and repairs are reduced and workplaces are safer.
Optimize material flows
Do all of your industrial trucks take the same path? Wireless sensors that are easily installed transmit the position, travel path and speed of the vehicle, giving you meaningful data for targeted actions for improvement. Traffic flows better, routing becomes more efficient and material throughput times are shorter.
Less collisions, more safety
Is the field of vision blocked by walls, shelves or machines? Industrial trucks use sensors to recognize when they are approaching another vehicle, and fork lift drivers are warned optically or acoustically. This reduces collisions and damage while increasing safety.
Find out causes of accidents
Damage and malfunctions often remain undiscovered? If your transport robots and other industrial trucks are equipped with sensors, there is data for every individual incident. This makes it possible to clearly identify causes. Also, the strength of the impact can be transmitted in real time for initiating the appropriate actions quickly.
A clear gain for your company
Enter and optimize paths
By analyzing paths that industrial trucks have taken, unnecessarily long paths or too much traffic in certain areas become visible immediately in warehouses or production. This allows you to untangle the flow of traffic in a targeted way or to change the storage location of frequently needed products to shorten travel paths.
Avoid critical driving patterns
Critical driving patterns can especially occur when autonomous and manually operated industrial trucks take the same paths. Sensors that can sense when another vehicle is approaching can help in this situation: They trigger an optical or acoustic signal in the cab that warns the driver of an impending collision.
Find out causes of accidents
If there is a collision, the cause of the collision can quickly be discovered by the trip data that the sensor recorded. If the strength of the impact is transmitted in real time, it is also possible to initiate appropriate actions immediately such as a vehicle check, or certain shelves or facilities can be blocked that may have been damaged by the accident.
Limit travel speed
If the travel speed is often exceeded in an area where there are a lot of employees, it is possible to restrict the maximum speed of industrial trucks in those areas. A speed limiter is activated by a position sensor in the control unit, and as soon as the equipment has reached the end of the defined zone it can be driven at normal speeds again.
Record the temperature
Industrial trucks use many different vehicle batteries and charging technologies. That is why it can be advantageous to constantly monitor battery temperature. This is not only an advantage for the useful life of your industrial trucks but also increases safety at your company – which may lead to your insurance premiums being reduced.
