3D sensors: Safe Manoeuvring Instead Of Colliding

Gigantic, weighing dozens of tonnes and confusing: In all container ports worldwide reach stackers are used to stack and handle containers. To avoid collision within the container terminals during narrow and rapid manoeuvring ifm offers automatic collision avoidance: A 3D camera at the rear monitors the rear area detects objects in the travel path and warns the driver of possible collision. The driver’s eyes look straight ahead when moving the 14 m wide and up to 40 tonne containers attached to booms through the narrow container stacks. Even when manoeuvring in reverse the driver must keep an eye on the transverse container to avoid hitting the containers stacked on top of each other like a wall.
