By loading and unloading containers, gantry cranes play an important role. The big challenge at the automation of these cranes on the water side to an unmanned operation is the precise control of the load: especially sway and skew must be avoided with an accurate and reliable sway control. At the same time, the control system has to generate and process information about the surroundings of the machine, the distribution of the load and the position of individual containers. The iSAM® Sensor Suite delivers all this information in an easy-to-use package for efficient container handling.
3D real-time laser scanner for automatic determination of load position and attitude, sway and skew with 10 Hz update rate
Internal physical model for smooth trajectory control of suspended loads
Control of the load movement and scan of the entire environment with just one sensor
Easy integration into existing control systems
iSAM® sensor technology enables a significant reduction in development costs and project risk by
