Beacon is a highly accurate laser navigation system used in autonomous mobile robots

Beacon derives position using a 360° Lidar scanner and a well-distributed reflective target constellation to consistently determine the location of any AMR within 4mm.

Fast & easy commissioning

Ideal for large areas

Pinpoint accuracy

The key to the accuracy of the Beacon navigation system versus similar solutions on the market is its use of a ‘continuous wave’ beam of light. Beacon calculates its position using distance and bearing data from the first point it ‘sees’ each reflector until the last moment that reflector is in its ‘vision’ resulting in pinpoint accuracy.

Self Survey

Need to expand or change the layout of your facility? No problem!

With Beacon, there is no need to employee a surveyor to undertake a lengthy and costly survey to create a new map.

Beacon Self Survey can survey the facility and create the map within hours rather than weeks and can be used time and time again giving you complete flexibility and scalability.

Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) Trial

If you’re an SME that could benefit from the addition of Mobile Robots within your facility, we would love to advise on how this could be implemented and what productivity gains could potentially be made.

Nothing is better than actually having a vehicle in your facility to replicate the solution and show how such vehicles could operate in your environment with your people.

We can demonstrate a solution and potentially leave it with you to see some of the benefits for yourself. Let us help you unlock the potential of automation.
