Truck positioning and container position determination for STS cranes: 3D laser measurement technology is applied in this system.
The measurement system LaseTPC – Truck Positioning Crane consists of two 3D-laser scanners and a LASE Control Unit (LCU).
The two LASE 3000D are mounted on both sides of the crane transversal girder and the scenery in the portal is measured 3-dimensionally. The position of the truck, trailer, AGV or container on the vehicles as well as on the floor can be determined.
This system is particularly important for the double or triple spreader operation – the crane driver otherwise needs considerably more time to get the spreader on the container.
In the following animation the process while vessel unloading is shown – in case of any problems you can also stream it from our webserver here…
Otherwise you can also watch an animation about LaseTPC – Truck Positioning Crane for the loading process of a container vessel.
