Application: Operating method for a loading system and automation system for controlling the loading system (Patent ID: US20240095278A1)

The patent filed by Siemens AG describes an automation system and operating method for controlling a loading system to avoid collisions between the load being moved and objects in the environment. The system involves providing digital load and environment image files, adding a protective distance to create a collision model image file, generating a cutout file for a virtual view from the load's position, creating a differential image file through differentiation, and evaluating it for potential collisions. The method utilizes point cloud data, adjusts the enveloping surface dynamically, and focuses on specific areas to optimize collision detection.

Siemens AG's patent also details an automation system with an imaging sensor system, sensor data computing unit, and control unit for fault safety to control the loading system. The system includes a collision algorithm, a projector for creating cutout files, and an evaluator to examine differential image files for possible collisions. It records point cloud data, adjusts enveloping surfaces dynamically, and focuses on specific areas to enhance collision detection and reaction time. The system is designed for use with container cranes or bridges and can handle various types of loads efficiently and safely.
