This autonomous transport system consists of a high-grade, automated command centre and a fleet of fully autonomous, heavy, driverless carriers. A fully functional prototype system is used daily for intensive research and for developing functions such as automatic logistics planning and issuing orders.
On the vehicle side, new research findings from the fields of robotics and artificial intelligence are being implemented to allow the autonomous carriers to carry out their tasks safely in all environments, situations and weather conditions.
The autonomous transport system improves productivity and environmental performance by ten per cent each and reduces the cost of transportation by 40 per cent. Knowledge sharing between industry and universities is significant.
