Autonomous vehicles need to see everything around them. While optical and LiDAR sensors provide high-quality data, they don’t perform reliably in all environmental conditions. Navtech Radar’s 360° CIR Sensor provides reliable all-weather sensing designed to improve safety and efficiency in autonomous cars.
Compact and lightweight with no active moving parts, the CIR Sensor’s rugged design provides vibration, heat and impact resistance. Its 360° high-resolution field of view is unaffected by fog, smoke, dust, rain or snow, making it the ideal sensor for on-board and over-the-horizon applications where humans have limited visibility. The sensor can be mounted at any angle to gather information on vehicle location and speed, pedestrians, debris on the road, stopped vehicles and traffic jams within a 200m radius.
Easily integrated into any software package, the CIR Sensor requires minimal servicing and has a five-year maintenance interval plus IP 67 rating.
With some of the largest mines in the world, machine operation and 3D-stockpile monitoring in Brazil’s mining sector must be performed efficiently and effectively. Lynx Process chose to install the Navtech Radar sensors as an alternative to their previous short-range equipment. The 360° scanning ability meant that a smaller
amount of sensors were required to achieve the same coverage.
Port Pilbara is one of the main ports for shipping iron ore. With each ton of iron ore being worth approximately $100, it is essential to keep the loaders operating with minimal downtime. Navtech Radar’s sensors were mounted on the bulk loader to provide data for anti-collision, navigation and optimum loading.
Port Botany is the second busiest container port in Australia. In 2012 it was decided that a solution to improve the efficiency of the port was required. Cargotec recognised that industrial automation was necessary to fully optimise the port. Radar was selected as the most reliable technology, capable of sensing even through thick fog, smoke, dust, precipitation, and in all light conditions.
If you are in the US or most countries in Europe, Level Five Supplies is pleased to offer finance as a payment option.
Our appointed partners in the US and Europe can work with you to make equipment purchase more straightforward.
There are many reasons to consider using finance:
Improves Cash Flow: When you finance your equipment, your cash isn’t tied up in the equipment. Instead, it’s free for other investments that will grow your business, produce income, and ensure the equipment you acquire earns profits over its lifetime.
Preserves Other Lines of Credit: Tomorrow can bring many opportunities. Financing equipment means you’ll have the credit available (either from the bank or other sources) to take advantage of future opportunities.
Hedges against inflation: Your monthly payment remains the same over the term of the lease or loan. Money paid later in the term usually have less purchasing power than those paid at the beginning of the term…so you pay for today’s equipment needs with tomorrow’s lower-value currency.
Provides 100% financing: Even “soft costs” such as training, shipping, installation, and maintenance agreements can usually be included. So you can rest easy knowing that these associated costs won’t disrupt your cash flow.
Simplifies equipment changes: Hiring additional workforce? Increasing efficiency? Additional equipment can easily be added to your existing loan or lease. Or, if you’re trying to stay ahead of the competition by staying ahead of technologies, the equity in your financed equipment can be applied toward the loan or lease of new equipment. These options solve the problems of obsolescence – and make your job easier.
Eliminates hidden charges: You have no compensating balances, no closing costs, and no blanket liens or other restrictive covenants that banks use to increase customers’ cost. What you see is what you get.
Offers excellent rates: Our finance partner rates are highly competitive.
Saves on taxes: Depending on the type of finance agreement you select, as much as 100% of your payments may be tax deductible.
Offers many payment programs: Our finance partners work for you, not us. You choose the type of loan or lease that best fits your needs, and you select the length of the loan or lease term.
The finance agreement is between you and the lender, and we don’t take commission or referral fees – but we’ve done the preparatory work of allocating a broker for the US, and another for Europe, explaining the technology, validating supplier products and explaining how the technology will be used so your application process is simplified and focused entirely on the financials.
The initial part of the process usually takes less than an hour and means that you can spread the cost of a higher value purchase of equipment like this over several months or even years, allowing you to better plan your project or department budgets, but also meaning you can get what you need over the coming years, not just what you can afford today.
