Crown’s QuickPick Remote Advance system enables an operator to stay off a lift truck and use a transceiver glove to advance the truck to the next pick slot. The wireless transceiver module on the back of the glove periodically transmits and receives RF signals to and from an RF tower located on the truck.
The system uses lasers to detect obstacles in the path of the truck. If an obstacle is detected, the brakes are automatically applied. The lasers can also detect proximity to racks, enabling the system to utilize Crown’s Access 1 2 3 Comprehensive System Control to initiate minor corrections to travel path to keep the truck moving down the aisle.
