Vehicle Location and Navigation - FLEXUS AG

Intelligent tools for vehicle location and navigation for SAP®

In combination with the FLX-TLS Material Guidance System for SAP®, the Flexus location tool offers a comprehensive way for controlling all internal transports. The material movements are recorded in real time and transferred to the SAP® system.

This ensures scan-free warehouse processes and enables additional functions such as collision warning.

 

 


AREAS OF APPLICATION

It is recommended to locate Your vehicles/lift trucks if:

  • Your warehouse is characterised by a high turnover dynamic
  • You have to spend a lot of time searching for material and ressources
  • You want to significantly minimize the number of incorrect deliveries

Through the combined use of positioning technologies and sensors (height and loading sensors), it is possible to validate the picking up and dropping off of goods directly in SAP® without scanning. In this way, the efficiency for transport processing is considerably maximized.

 

VEHICLE NAVIGATION WITH ROUTE DISPLAY

With the use of vehicle navigation within SAP® intralogistics, the driver is shown the shortest route from his current location to his destinations.


The loaded goods that are to be picked up are highlighted in colour. Via the vehicle location the pick-ups or drop-offs are automatically registered. Warehouse and logistics managers benefit from enormous time savings, as the employees complete their tasks intuitively and without time-consuming scanning procedures.

 

INNOVATIVE DASHBOARDS FOR VEHICLE AND FORKLIFT LOCATION

Within the FLX-TLS System, various SAP® dashboards are available to the warehouse and logistics manager for evaluation and transport control. The current status of logistics and be displayed using 2D/3D cockpits.


This allows continuous tracking of the current position and capacity of the vehicles (forklifts, route trains, driverless transport vehicles). Thanks to this feature, intralogistics processes are always monitored and can be controlled proactively.

 

TECHNOLOGIES FOR THE DETECTION OF VEHICLES AND FORKLIFTS

There are various technologies for locating the vehicles. Locating by laser, RFID tags or camera-based systems enables continuous vehicle tracking. This not only ensures process reliability, but also the use of various driver assistance systems (e.g. driver warehouse navigation within intralogistics).
Using ultra-wideband (UWB) positioning, the location of vehicles is based on the transit time of a radio signal between an object and several anchors. The vehicle to be located is equipped with a small tag. This transmits the position of the vehicle in real time is possible with an accuracy of 10 - 30 cm.
By using geofencing, an action (e.g. acknowledgement of a driving order) can be triggered automatically. In addition, extended safety functions are made possible. For example, when two vehicles approach, a collision warning appears on the driver's display to reduce accidents even in confusing warehouse situations. In hazardous situations, the speed can also be automatically regulated via the FLX-TLS.

 

PRECISE LOCATIONS VIA 2D-LASER LOCALIZATION

The use of the 2D laser enables reliable warehouse navigation and automated load identification.
The Identplus® stacker location component is one of the technologies used in the FLX-TLS and ensures the acquisition of position data via laser localisation. These are transferred directly into the FLX-TLS and allow to process the resulting transports more efficiently within SAP® intralogistics.
The forklift is not using the laser to orient itself according to artificially generated reference points on your factory premises, but according to its real and current environment. This allows changes in its dynamic environment to be recognized immediately and taken into account when navigating indoors and outdoors.

 

ADVANTAGES OF VEHICLE/ FORKLIFT POSITIONING WITH THE FLX-TLS

  • Automatic goods and storage location identification with SAP®
  • Saves time and increases efficiency through automated scanning processes and object identification
  • Localization of forklifts both indoors and outdoors
  • Intelligent localization and identification solution for SAP®
  • Detailed statistics on the utilization of your resources

Combined use with the FLX-TLS this offers a high degree of automation and optimisation potential in the field of intralogistics.

 

FLEXUS AG AND IDENTPRO GMBH

Flexus AG from Würzburg is now one of the strategic sales partners of IdentPro GmbH with its 3D stacker control system identplus®.


Together, the partners offer their customers a solution for the digitization and automation of internal production and warehouse logistics with forklifts, tugger trains and driverless transport systems.
