Terabee Follow-Me - Radio-frequency relative positioning system for mobile robots

D717357 Edit

Radio-frequency relative positioning system providing heading and distance to target, designed for mobile robots and platforms.

This hardware kit consists of two beacons (a master and a slave), to be installed on a mobile platform, and remote control for the human operator. The remote control is battery powered and when the operator wants to be located by the beacons, he simply presses a button on the remote to activate the system.

With the button pressed, the system uses trigonometry to calculate distances and headings between the remote and the center point between the two beacons. In the case of a mobile robot, this data can be used by the robots’ navigation system to map a trajectory from itself to the operator.

Key system features

  • Up to 60 meters range, based on Radio-Frequency Ultra Wide Band technology
  • IP65-rated when back-panel mounted, IP65 for the remote control
  • Interfaces: RS485 (Modbus RTU), USB 2.0 (CDC)
  • Output data: distance and heading to target (remote control)

POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS FOR LOGISTICS AND MANUFACTURING

Terabee Follow-Me system, combined with development of a control system for the specific platform, can transform electric pallet trucks into smarter mobile platforms to improve productivity and safety when transporting items from one place to another. Instead of driving via a handle, the operator can be positioned at a safe distance and guide the platform via the hand-held remote to navigate through obstacle-ridden or hazardous zones.
