Reflectors and markers

Some robots require reflectors or markers for orientation and navigation on the shop floor. These tools will be an important part of the shopfloor infrastructure, when robots are entering the warehouse. Shelves, corridors and passages need to provide a place for these parts of the robot infrastructure.

An additional challenge is that different robot manufacturers provide different reflectors or markers. Some of them use QR codes for the robot to orientate, others are working with reflectors that send back laser light.

Currently these parts are needed for many systems or can reduce navigation errors dramatically. In a possible future it could be the case that robots do not need these parts for their orientation anymore. But, especially to identify boxes and goods some identification systems will be needed.
