Nothing works as well as an easy-to-use and easy-to-integrate product.

The Toposens Prosessing Unit interconnects our 3D Ultrasonic Echolocation Sensor ECHO ONE® to an AGV or AMR infrastructure. It provides standardized output signals to indicate to mobile robot’s control system, whether an obstacle or object was detected by the sensor. This takes away the hassle of complicated integration procedures.

The convenient gateway between ECHO ONE® and your robot.

The Toposens Processing Unit (TPU) serves the need of easy integration of the Toposens 3D ultrasonic sensing technology for 3D collision avoidance. It enables customers to use pre-filtered point clouds displayable in a Graphical User Interface (GUI) to make use of the 3D collision avoidance functionality by setting dynamical three-dimensional, adjustable warning- and stopping-zones.

Along with the next-generation 3D Ultrasonic Echolocation Sensor ECHO ONE®, the system enables your AGV, robot, or other application to avoid collisions with all kinds of obstacles.

Technology

GATEWAY: The TPU acts as a gateway between Toposens 3D Ultrasonic Sensors and customer applications.

FILTERS: It features a set of sophisticated filters to pre-filter the point cloud obtained by the ECHO ONE®

3D COLLISION AVOIDANCE: 3D Collision avoidance is adjustable via configurable warning zones and stopping zones in easy-to-use graphical interface (GUI).

Graphical User Interface

The easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI) visualizes the adjustable warning zones and stopping zones, which are configurable depending on your use case.

Individual parameters can also be adjusted in the GUI together with the sensor vehicle positioning.
