Moving pallets from one corner of a warehouse to another can be taxing and mundane for human workers. But a new generation of autonomous industrial forklifts is making quick work of the job and sidelining human drivers, freeing them to do more value-added tasks. That’s in large part thanks to advances in 3D vision. As Contributing Editor Hank Hogan writes in this month’s cover story, “3D Sensing Bolsters Robotic Guidance,” 3D cameras can quickly locate the pockets of the pallet where the forklift should slide the forks. Gathering this information with a 3D camera...Read full article
