Automated steel coil loading

A crane unloading steel coils for different warehouse location stations is to be fully automated. The warehouse management system requires positional data of the coils on railway cars in order to automate the crane's movement. A distance sensor records the position of the coils on the x-axis, while the LD-OEM 2D laser scanner calculates all of the other measurement data, such as the position and size of the steel coils.
