O3M 3D Smart Sensor – Distance control

Height and distance control for airport vehicles

Assistance for aircraft tractors
By monitoring a pre-defined area, the 3D sensor can either provide an end position message or a contour image of the nose wheel to the machine control system.

Positioning assistance for support vehicles
More than 1,000 individual measurements precisely detect the target area of the aircraft. Customer-specific application solutions can be implemented fast and easily using altogether 64 'regions of interest' (ROIs), i.e. individual regions whose distances are to be monitored.

Height control for tankers
The integrated distance function 'minimum distance' can monitor up to 64 selectable points above the tanker simultaneously. The driver can, for example, be supported when he positions the tanker underneath the aeroplane wing or is informed if the wing is lowered.

Application example: aircraft tractor
