Lehrte, 03. Februar 2016 — For automation projects there now is a comfortable control software by Götting available. The solution has been realized completely in house. The control software allows users to connect to the server and display and edit the system operation via a standard browser without plug-ins.
The control software TransportControl coordinates and visualizes driverless vehicles. The communication between the server and the vehicles may be carried out via wireless LAN (WLAN).

The control software is installed on a customer-provided (virtual) server. The control software can then be accessed from any PC or mobile device in the company network that has a sufficient authorization level. The user only has to use the browser-based client – an additional software installation is not necessary.
In order to supply qualified support or carry out maintenance jobs Götting may be given remote-access. A telegram interface allows to exchange data with higher level warehouse management and manufacturing execution systems as well as to communicate with gate supervision or fire alarm systems.

The video shows the operation of TransportControl. The operation was recorded on a current commercial PC with a standard browser in real-time. The usage of the software is not simulated. The track matches real-world conditions. The vehicles in the demonstration are calculated by the server.
