The increasing demand for online commerce has led to greater demand for autonomous vehicles in the logistics sector. In this white paper, we compare the performance of four different technologies which provide obstacle detection for autonomous forklifts on 22 different metrics which are important for the selection of an ideal 3D sensor for obstacle avoidance. We have assembled these criteria from our industrial teacher customers.
Below is an interesting white paper showing the benefits of DreamVu’s Omnidirectional vision system with its obstacle detection software compared to other available sensor technologies. It shows the advantages and disadvantages of various sensor technologies and also the results and testing metrics in very difficult scenarios present in a warehouse.
