smartmicro Collision Avoidance
Collision Avoidance, smartmicro's latest feature 3D Occupancy Grid is running on the short/medium range radar UMRR-96 Type 153. It can be used in a collision avoidance system on slowly driving vehicles – such as delivery robots – to provide proximity warning and avoid collisions with stationary obstacles or slowly moving objects like pedestrians.
The smartmicro sensor monitors and tracks a 3D grid, detecting all obstacles in front of it. It even allows for the vehicle to decide if an object can be driven over or under. The radar does not require any external data input from the vehicle and can be mounted at any position. All algorithms and functions are integrated in the radar sensor, which means that no additional hardware is required.
