Pinpoint accuracy from reflector-based laser navigation – ideal for large areas

Beacon is a highly accurate AMR/AGV laser navigation system.

Beacon derives position using a 360° Lidar scanner and reflective target constellation. An angular resolution of 0.1 mrad (<0.005°) results in vehicle position repeatability/accuracy of +/-4mm (or better).

Used for many applications including safety related medical devices such as autonomous mobile x-ray scanners.

Pinpoint Precision for Automated Guided Vehicles

The Beacon position measurement system provides a highly accurate means of determining the location of any AGV within a facility.

It achieves consistent measurement to within 4mm using a well-distributed set of reflectors.

The key to the accuracy of the Beacon navigation system versus similar solutions on the market is its use of a ‘continuous wave’ beam of light. Beacon calculates its position using distance and bearing data from the first point it ‘sees’ each reflector until the last moment that reflector is in its ‘vision’.

This enables a precise location to be calculated.

Simple and Quick Installations

The Beacon system is fast and easy to configure. To start, our engineers can recommend the positioning of a set of reflectors in the operating environment. Guidance Adopt Beacon software and a mapping vehicle are then used to survey the work areas to create a map which is used by the navigation system to accurately provide positioning for all your AGVs.

Typical Uses

Beacon is ideally suited for environments such as wide area warehousing, automotive manufacturing or industrial processing plants.
