The mvBlueLYNX is used to visually remotely monitor a high bay system via video streaming. The intelligent camera is attached to a storage and retrieval machine (SRM) in order to display the pallets on the forks on the one hand and to view the current compartments in front of which the SRM is currently standing on the other hand. Possible extensions of the system are:

  • Recognition of barcodes

  • Measurement of the storage area

  • Picking via a gripper robot
