What Is Needed to Get Started?
Let’s start the answer by stating what’s NOT needed. Once you realize that you don’t need vests, badges or tags for people to wear, or you don’t need tape on the floor, or that you don’t need to install boxes all over the racking system, ceilings and walls…you ask what’s left?
The S3 Pedestrian Detection System on the forklift. Remember, we’re tracking the autonomous movement of a forklift, which means we need to move with the forklift…not try to find it. As we move with the forklift, the S3 scans around each individual forklift regardless of where it’s at in the warehouse, distribution center or manufacturing facility.
Like Freeman Dyson said, “My philosophy is to look for what’s detectable, not for what’s probable.” And so we did.
