Lasers for Cobots, AGVs vs AMRs, RISC-V Partnerships, and Contactless Touch

<p><strong>New Ultra-Compact Safety Laser Scanner for Cobots, Autonomous Carts and more</strong></p><p>As a manufacturer of sensors, safety systems, machine vision, encoders and automatic identification products for industrial applications, <a href="https://directory.designnews.com/sick-inc-comp285408.html" target="_blank">SICK</a> is launching its newest ultra-compact safety laser scanner, nanoScan3. This product combines smart safety functions with excellent measurement data quality for accurate and reliable localization. With an overall height of just over three inches, this space-saving sensor can be used wherever machines and vehicles require maximum performance but have minimal mounting space. This enables manufacturers to use small AGVs or mobile robots equipped with SICK’s safety technology.</p><p>Based on successful microScan3 technology, the 2D safety sensor, nanoScan3, uses patented safeHDDM® scan technology. This enables the nanoScan3 to hold up well even in harsh or challenging ambient conditions. It is impervious to interferences like dust, contamination, and ambient light.  </p><p>With its small size, the nanoScan3 opens up potential applications where space is extremely critical, such as in mobile intralogistics, collaborative robots (cobots), or mobile assistance and service robotics on autonomous transport platforms and carts. What’s more, the nanoScan3 is setting a new standard in this market segment with its price-performance ratio.</p>
Suppliers provide components, modules, leadership, insights and more.
