New 2-dimensional Transponder Antenna for the Navigation of Vehicles

Photo antenna HG G-98830

Lehrte, December 8th 2016 — Götting has extended its range of 2-dimensional transponder antennas with a compact variant that it will show on the LogiMAT 2017.

The line of huge antennas (HG G-98850, HG G-98860) used mostly for applications in container ports has a new addition, the antenna HG G-98830 for applications with small, compact vehicles.

The existing transmission method between transponder and antenna has been enhanced with regard to the signal safety and accuracy. As soon as the antenna crosses one of the passive transponders in the ground it inductively provides energy to the transponder. The transponder then responds at half the frequency and sends its code.

The antenna then calculates the relative position of the transponder with regard to the antenna's center in direction of travel as well as diagonally. It then outputs code and position via CAN bus to the vehicle control. The full duplex communication at 128/64 kHz allows a continuous position calculation with a cycle time of 8 ms as long as the transponder is within the active reading area of the antenna. There are flat or bar transponders available to suit different applications.

Due to the slim design and the metal frame of the antenna it is possible to directly integrate it into the vehicle floor. The resolution of the position data is in the millimeter range. The maximum crossing speed is 4.0 m/s. Götting is an industry leader with this transponder technology and with the new antenna concept Götting sets new standards for a robust and highly accurate navigation system for different kinds of automated guided vehicles (AGV) in industrial applications.
