The first applications are devoted to large automation systems for ‘scrap yards’ in steel plants. According to a ‘recipe’ preset at higher level, the system orders radio-controlled self-propelled vehicles to load empty containers, to locate under the bridge crane and to follow its movements. A display installed in the bridge crane cab shows the crane operator the type of material to be loaded. Each batch is weighed. After the completion of this operation, the container is automatically carried to the blast furnace.
