The GLS6 product family encompasses compact sensors for localization of automated guided vehicles (AGVs). The sensors reliably detect Data Matrix or QR code labels which are attached to the floor as rasters for orientation for the AGV and deliver position data to the vehicle control. High travel speeds are no problem for the GLS6. The GLS6 can localize perfectly on contaminated ground and fit even in the smallest AGV due to its compact size. Thanks to the optional variable focus or auto focus, the localization solution is well-suited for all ground clearances. Thanks to the integrated alignment aid, mounting is also child’s play. And parameter back-up ensures process stability during device replacement.

Grid localization of AGVs has never been so easy
The sensors from the GLS6 product family have been specially developed for grid localization of AGVs in warehouse logistics. The narrow design allows this localization solution to be used in AGVs of all sizes. Customizable multi-code labels in grid form are initially applied to the travel paths of the AGV. With the help of the multi-code labels, the GLS6 then precisely determines the respective position of an AGV in a room – without it having to reduce its travel speed. The GLS6 offers maximum flexibility, be it for variable reading distances, adaptation of the code information by the customer or the data format required for transmission to the control. See for yourself.
The compact GLS6 for grid localization of AGVs offers maximum flexibility when it comes to small installation space, variable reading distances and data output formats, and the identification of customer-specific code information.
