Beschreibung

Forklift  trucks  are  indispensable  tools  for  manual  pallet  handling.  Storage heights  at  high  rack  storage  areas  often  reach  up  to  12  meters  which  in  combination with bulky cargo hinder the view of the forklift truck driver.  As part of the joint research project ISI-WALK, a 3D-camera-based assistance  system  is  developed  at  the  Institute  of  Transport  and  Automation Technology  (ITA)  to  aid  the  forklift  driver  especially  under  limited  view conditions.  The  employed  cameras,  developed  by  PMDTechnologies,  are integrated into the tips of the forks, thus allowing the detection of pallets an   storage racks even if a pallet is already loaded.
