Rexroth ROKIT Locator for Forklifts
The ROKIT Locator by Bosch Rexroth is an intelligent laser localization software for intralogistics. The real-time location system (RTLS) reliably maps your environment and determines the position of your fleet, including a wide range of vehicle types like manual and automated forklifts as well as automated guided vehicles (AGV), service and mobile robots (AMR) in a variety of changing environments indoor and outdoor. This is made possible by a high-performance algorithm. It automatically detects the natural environment while driving using a (retrofitted) laser sensor on the forklift and creates a digital map in real-time, which is steadily and automatically being updated. With the ROKIT Locator, Bosch Rexroth thus provides a key technology and enables position-based services such as automatic scanning processes and warehouse navigation for logistics operations with industrial trucks with maximum flexibility and efficiency.
Optimize the use of your entire forklift fleet and benefit from the easy integration of the ROKIT Locator into a wide range of vehicle types such as forklifts, AGVs or AMRs as well as into numerous industries and application areas. Due to the modular approach, the localization software for real-time forklift tracking is hardware-independent and does not require any structural measures to the warehouse infrastructure such as the installation of reflectors, strips, or markers.
In a warehouse with manual and automated forklifts, location tracking is the basis for more transparency in the warehouse as well as for optimum material handling and storage processes. An indoor and outdoor real-time location system (RTLS) of forklifts and goods is the most important prerequisite for position tracking of a forklift and/or AGV fleet management system (mixed fleet). It enables absolute traceability of the forklift and moved goods such as pallets, wire pallet cages or paper rolls (track & trace) as well as automated order picking and automatic inventories, avoids errors during storage and retrieval, and reduces search efforts. In addition, real-time tracking of forklifts offers potential for cost savings and increased productivity through automated scanning processes and a reduction in empty runs.
Thanks to fast and easy setup and reliable operation of the real-time location tracking and mapping software, you do not have to worry about determining the position of your manual forklifts. Even after a vehicle restart, due to a shift change, for instance, the ROKIT Locator automatically finds the current position in no time. Additionally, the flexible adaptions to changing environments, such as in block and high-bay warehouses, enable automatic map updates for your entire forklift fleet.
Introduction & use cases
Every first friday of the month we present you one of the features of our ROKIT Locators in detail. Let’s start with a short introduction video.
Express mapping – guided live mapping
No need for infrastructure adaptions or expert knowledge (based on SLAM – simultaneous localization and mapping) – our solution maps your environment with just one click. See in today's Feature Friday how easily our ROKIT Locator detects and maps natural environments.
Our ROKIT Locator is able to locate itself automatically after a change of position.
Robust and reliable localization
Our ROKIT Locator also works for example with vibrations, ramps or in dynamic, industrial environments.
The real-time location system automatically detects changes in the environment, continuously updates the digital map and shares it with the entire ROKIT Locator fleet.
The ROKIT Locator hides vehicle contours in sensor data.
Do you want to localize your manual forklifts or mobile robots in an existing coordinate system? No problem – our ROKIT Locator Map can be easily aligned to your existing coordinate system.
Manual map alignment
Adjust your digital warehouse map with offsets and rotations according to your individual needs.
Wheel odometry fusion
Our real-time location system allows users to extend existing ROKIT Locator maps and replace map zones.
Depending on the application and need, the ROKIT Locator can support up to two lasers. This enhances the robustness of your AGV.
