Top Control

Amongst many other software and hardware products for the fruit and vegetable packaging industry, TopControl provides a forklift fleet management and transport mission command and control system. To get the accurate position of each forklift in the fleet at any given point in time and information about goods currently loaded as well as their accurate loading and unloading position all forklifts are equipped with a range of sensors. Johannes will give an insight into the challenges faced during the development of one specific multi-sensor device and how Qt as a development platform helped to establish reliable communication between various software and hardware components as well as a user-friendly HMI for configuration and troubleshooting purposes.
