Autonomous forklift trucks can work safely around humans

Scientists are working to develop new fleets of autonomous 'self-optimising' forklift trucks which can operate safely and efficiently in warehouses alongside human co-workers, and automatically adapt to changing work demands. The goal of the project, a multinational collaboration between robotics specialists in the UK, Sweden, Italy and Germany, is to enable deployment of next generation automated guided vehicles (AGVs) into current warehouse facilities to support tasks such as packing, palletising and transporting goods. The four-year project, called ILIAD (Intra-Logistics with Integrated Automatic Deployment), is funded with a major grant of 7 million Euros from the EU's Horizon 2020 fund. The consortium is led by Örebro University in Sweden, and includes University of Lincoln , UK, University of Pisa , Italy, and Leibniz University, Hannover, Germany, working with major...
