Port Automation

The OPAL™ LiDAR is a long range 3D laser scanner which provides precise and accurate real-time position information of moving and stationary objects, infrastructure, and coastline. The OPAL features unparalleled resolution and accuracy which is extremely important for autonomous perception systems, automation, and improved awareness for maritime and port applications.

Port and Waterway Automation

OPAL™ LiDAR provides a number of unique and important capabilities that improve automation of several port and waterway processes including ship loading and unloading, cargo handling, and Waterway System Automation and Control (Locks, Bridges, Gates, Arrestors). The OPAL™ LiDAR can also assist in monitoring valuable assets against incursions, collisions or theft.

OPAL™ LiDAR can be configured for your specific needs and operate in all weather conditions at all times. This continuous operation requires no operator input, no maintenance, and requires no targets or reflectors. User configurable alert zones can be easily applied and include automatic alert systems.
