For the 100% digital twin, tracking of all stock movements is essential. This includes not only the automated movements, but also in particular the movements of manned industrial trucks. Various technologies such as GPS, radiolocation and state-of-the-art camera systems can be used for this purpose. Analogous to the development of automated driving in the automotive industry, a laser-based localization system has also proven its worth here. The advantage of this system is that it does not require any additional infrastructure. It is also characterized by its high precision (cm-accurate) and robustness for indoor and outdoor use. Due to its extensive use in the automotive industry, its introduction in intralogistics is now also competitive in terms of price compared to the systems mentioned above.

After we mount the sensors on the any vehicles, it captures the environment every second and creates the digital image of the warehouse. This is updated with each movement after a brief initial capture. The forklift terminal transmits its position simultaneously via 5G or Wifi. The system works exclusively with the contours of the environment and does not require any other sensors, reflectors or other aids.
