Warehouses and distribution centres are increasingly looking to integrate digitalisation, automated guided vehicle systems (AGV) and other mobile platforms to optimise their operations. Flexibility, reliability, availability, and productivity are the major contributing factors in the efficient use of these vehicles. This is why it is so essential to detect potential faults as early as possible and respond to them appropriately via the vehicle control system.
While autonomous systems are coming efficient at detecting ground-level obstacles without intervention and plotting alternative routes, often the third dimension, height, is overlooked.
