LaseLCPS-3D-2D - Load Collision Prevention System -3D-2D

This specific version of the application LaseLCPS-3D-2D - Load Collision Prevention is a combined 3D/2D measurement system consisiting of each one 2D and one 3D laser scanner mounted under the trolley. The measurement system is applicable for topography detection and collision prevention at RTG, RMG or STS cranes.

Customer Benefits & Features:

  • Stack height information for path optimisation
  • Avoids collisions between load and stack
  • Collision prevention also with adjacent stacks in gantry direction
  • Applicable for RMGs, RTGs and STS
  • Gentle container handling through soft landings
  • Less spreader wear and noise reduction
  • Driver assistance
  • Both 2D and 3D profile scan in gantry and trolley drive direction

Short description:

The LaseLCPS application software collects the scan data, does all needed calculations and sends the results to the machine PLC. In order to measure all relevant stacks a 2D profile scan in gantry as well as trolley direction will be processed before the first move. Two different scan planes are projected orthogonally to each other. An additional 3D scan will be done after the trolley has passed the highest point of the stack in order to detect shadow areas. A further collision prevention check by the dynamic surveillance cube has the function to avoid collisions between the empty spreader or container on the spreader and containers in the stacking area. The position (cube center) is located in the middle of the spreader‘s lower edge. The expansion of the cube is depending on the adjusted length of the spreader (20’, 40’, 45’), height of container on the spreader, moving direction and the velocity of trolley and hoist.


LaseLCPS-3D-2D (Load Collision Prevention System -3D-2D) has been qualified for the Performance Level d - Category 3 by the German BG (Employers' Liability Insurance Association). The certification by this statutory institution sets a milestone in the product development and meets today’s requirements on Performance Levels for safety standards in the port industry. The system complies with the requirements of cat. 3/PL d of EN ISO 13849-1. At the begin of 2017 LaseLCPS-3D-2D was issued an EC type-examination according to Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.
