Sick AG (or SICK, as spelled by the company), based in Waldkirch (Breisgau), Germany, is a global manufacturer of sensors and sensor solutions for industrial applications. The company is active in the areas of factory and logistics automation and process automation.
The company is particularly well known for its laser scanners, which are used as sensors in the fields of facility protection (security), ports and robotics. Five LIDARs produced by the Sick AG were used for short-range detection on Stanley, the autonomous car that won the 2005 DARPA Grand Challenge; they can be seen on the roof of the vehicle. SICK/IBEO LIDARs were also used for obstacle avoidance, mapping and pedestrian tracking on WAMbot, the autonomous vehicle that came 4th in the MAGIC 2010 competition.
SICK AG, a pioneer in technology and markets for factory automation, process automation and logistics automation, provides automation services to factories, logistics companies, and other industries all around the world. KEYDION has worked with SICK AG for over two years, undertaking a number of product localization projects.
SICK AG has never been let down by the quality, price or the service provided. We are always a pleasure to work with and we look forward to working with them on their future projects.
