Short description measuring system:
The CoCa laser measuring system consists of four laser scanners which are mounted at the gantry crane trolley. The measuring systems have got a rotating head that is equipped with a 4° wedge prism to generate a cone-shaped scan. The edge positions of head block, container and AGV are measured with the laser scanners. The pre-measurement value processing takes place on an application processor (DSP) that is integrated in the laser measuring system. Each scanner sends its calculated edge positions to the superior LASE PC. In that LASE PC the measured values of all scanners are summarised and the compressed information for the misalignment between the container/AGV resp. spreader/container is calculated.
