On the move with ifm - reliable mobile control solutions
ifm is one of the world's largest manufacturers of systems for mobile machines.
ifm has developed a new generation 3D mobile camera, the O3M Smart Sensor, to assist vehicle drivers in detecting obstacles that they may not see. The 3D Smart Sensor captures more than 1,000 individual measurements and precisely detects the area of the target, i.e. aircraft, from an approaching ground support vehicle.
Based on ifm's PMD Time of Flight technology, the distance measurement is transmitted via CAN, Ethernet, or simple switching outputs to the vehicle controller, enabling the vehicle to limit its speed, slow down and stop automatically.
