Title (EN) APPARATUS, SYSTEMS, AND METHODS FOR PAYLOAD PICK-UP AND DROP-OFF WITH A SELF-DRIVING MATERIAL-TRANSPORT VEHICLE
(FR) APPAREIL, SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE SAISIE ET DE DÉPÔT D'UNE CHARGE UTILE À L'AIDE D'UN VÉHICULE DE TRANSPORT DE MATÉRIAU AUTOMOTEUR
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatus, systems and methods for providing smart pick-up and drop-off are presented. The apparatus comprises at least one vertical support member and at least one storage shelf supported by the at least one vertical support member. A payload transfer surface, supported by the vertical support members, is located below the lowest storage shelf. The payload transfer surface has an access channel so that a self-driving material-transport vehicle equipped with a lift appliance can pick up or drop off a payload on the payload transfer surface. A sensor associated with the payload transfer surface senses the presence or absence of a payload on the payload transfer surface, and sends a signal to a fleet-management system in communication with the self-driving material-transport vehicle.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil, des systèmes et des procédés destinés à permettre une saisie et un dépôt intelligents. L'appareil comprend au moins un élément de support vertical et au moins une étagère de stockage soutenue par ledit élément de support vertical. Une surface de transfert de charge utile, soutenue par ledit élément de support vertical, est située au-dessous de l'étagère de stockage la plus basse. La surface de transfert de charge utile présente un canal d'accès de sorte qu'un véhicule de transport de matériau automoteur doté d'un appareil de levage puisse saisir ou déposer une charge utile sur la surface de transfert de charge utile. Un capteur associé à la surface de transfert de charge utile détecte la présence ou l'absence d'une charge utile sur la surface de transfert de charge utile, et envoie un signal à un système de gestion de flotte en communication avec le véhicule de transport de matériel automoteur.
