Continuously determine waste situations in bunkers in real-time and with high accuracy – Blickfeld’s digital solution enables efficient waste disposition and economical plant operation. The 3D volume data not only improves the utilization of materials recovery facilities but also provides the accounting and logistics departments with a reliable source of data to more easily comply with material storage regulations. With on-demand data access, waste companies can better forecast resources and leverage more storage capacity. This not only helps to plan the throughput of material better but also optimize internal logistics processes across sites.
Volume monitoring with the Blickfeld LiDAR solution enables a host of applications.
Silo Volume Monitoring
Blickfeld Dashboard for Volume Monitoring
Blickfeld’s Stockpile Volume Monitoring solution offers a customized dashboard that displays volume data in a user-friendly way. Customers can access this data anytime, anywhere, and from any device, enabling them to monitor their stockpile volume 24/7. The web-based dashboard also allows for the simultaneous monitoring of multiple bunkers and sites, providing overall transparency. With volume data tracked minutely, hourly, daily, and monthly, customers can analyze and optimize their material inventories over the long term. The solution also features alarm functions that automatically trigger supply chain processes, such as restocking, when stock levels run low, contributing to better resource planning in the long run.
LiDAR technology is used in various applications every day. Find a selection of customers who use Blickfeld technology to make their business safer, smarter and more efficient.
Companies with inaccurate data on their material inventories run the risk of selling too much or too little. A volume monitoring solution based on 3D LiDAR data can solve this problem.

Frequently Asked Questions
Cube 1 sensors ship with a mounting bracket that provides a standard 1/4″”-UNC camera thread.
For Qb2 sensors, Blickfeld offers different mounting options, including a camera mount that provides a standard 1/4″”-UNC camera thread and a pan tilt mount which allows for flexible mounting of both Qb2 variants to both walls and poles. Contact email@example.com for further information.
Blickfeld LiDAR sensors are offered with IP6X-rated housings, which are dust-proof. Additionally, dust can affect the performance of the sensor in two ways. In the air, dust can increase the false detection rate of LiDAR sensors. However, Blickfeld sensors perform very well in such scenarios, as long-term installations inside waste facility bunkers, silos, and similar locations have shown. Additionally, dust can settle on the optical aperture of the sensor, which decreases the detection range. However, this is only a problem in extreme cases, such as inside silos containing powdered substances. For such cases, Blickfeld can offer a pneumatic cleaning as an add-on to the sensor.
No additional software is needed to configure and operate the sensors except for a recent internet browser.
