Lehrte, May 7th, 2018 — A recently published video (see below) shows three different Götting KATE small AGV driving on the mobile area of or stand on the CeMAT 2018. All three vehicles are coordinated and visualized by the TransportControl software.
- One KATE navigates freely along virtual tracks. It uses a laser scanner that can detect the environment.
- An extremely flat KATE can transport picking carts.
- One KATE has a lifting table and transports small load carriers which it can set down/pick up automatically. This KATE also demonstrates the automatic battery charging at a conductive charging station.
Also on or stand was the company Velodyne® with a LiDAR® laser scanner. Since 2018 Götting is a Velodyne® partner for the integration in inddor and outdoor application. Both the KATE vehicles and the LiDAR scanner are shown in the embedded video below.
