Navigation Solutions

The emphasis of our Nucleus offering is firmly based on the operational environments of our customers. The hardware, software, processors and supporting services which make up the Nucleus offering are designed to meet the needs of a wide spectrum of operating environments, some of which require a combination of technologies in order to overcome complex challenges in mixed environments. 

Nucleus comprises of three primary solutions and two complementary technologies for autonomous vehicles; 

  • Beacon utilising laser scanners and targets and suitable for large operational environments
  • Scene either camera-based or laser scanner based solutions for mixed environments
  • Surface utilising floor-based mapping with camera-based technology

These can be used in combination where complex operational challenges exist.

In addition, 

  • kingpiN is a versatile, compact and robust vehicle controller which is designed and built for robotic/autonomous vehicle applications and is easy to integrate into new and existing vehicles 
  • moNitrav is a suite of scheduling software which provides control and accountability for the order of efficient movement of     robotic/autonomous vehicle around a given operating environment.

The following diagrams illustrate examples of the products and technologies that relate to each navigation environment. For example, on the Beacon diagram you will see our laser scanner product GNS 900, located towards the top of a typical AGV which forms part of the overall Beacon solution.
