Rexroth ROKIT Locator

Rexroth ROKIT Locator – Your Easy-to-Use Laser Localization Software

The ROKIT Locator by Bosch Rexroth is a software component that reliably determines the position and orientation of a wide range of vehicle types like manual forklifts in a variety of changing environments. This is made possible by a high-performance algorithm that automatically detects and maps the natural environment using a laser sensor on the vehicle. Bosch Rexroth thus provides a key technology and enables position-based services such as scan replacement and warehouse navigation for logistics operations with industrial trucks with maximum flexibility and efficiency.

Flexibility for all situations

Optimize your logistics and benefit from the easy integration of the ROKIT Locator into a wide range of vehicle types as well as into numerous industries and application areas. Due to the modular approach, the localization software is hardware-independent and does not require any structural measures.

Maximum efficiency

Thanks to fast and easy setup and reliable operation of the localization 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 warehouses, enable automatic map updates for your entire fleet.

Features ROKIT Locator

Express mapping – guided live mapping: Maps the environment with just a few clicks without the need for infrastructure adaptions or expert knowledge (based on SLAM – simultaneous localization and mapping).

Masking: Hides vehicle contours in sensor data.

Manual map alignment: Adjust the map with offsets and rotations.

Reference alignment: Align the ROKIT Locator map to an existing coordinate system.

Initial localization: Automatic localization after a change of position.

Robust and reliable localization: Functions smoothly in dynamic industrial environments regardless of vibrations and ramps.

Wheel odometry fusion: The positioning includes information of laser scans and estimated movements of the vehicle based on the wheel rotations.

Map update: Automatically detects changes in the environment, continuously updates the ROKIT Locator map, and shares it with the entire ROKIT Locator fleet.

Map expansion: Allows users to extend existing ROKIT Locator maps and replace map zones.

Dual laser: Supports up to two lasers.
