Intralogistics with Safe and Scalable Fleets of Autonomously Operating Vehicles in Shared Spaces – AI for Spatial Maps of Dynamics (MoDs) and Long-Term Human Motion Prediction (LHMP)

Today, intralogistic services have to respond quickly to changing market needs, unforeseeable trends and shorter product life cycles. These drivers pose new demands on intralogistic systems to be highly flexible, rock-solid reliable, self-optimising, quickly deployable and safe, yet efficient in environments shared with humans. In this presentation I will report on ILIAD, an H2020 project that set out to enable the transition to automation of intralogistic services in…

Making tools smarter through autonomy

Human tools have come a long way from the first chipped stones to today’s powered machinery. Endowing machines with the capabilities to autonomously execute certain tasks is the next logical step in this evolution. This talk discusses the technology that turns regular manually operated forklifts into autonomous machines capable of executing tasks without operator intervention.
