Abstract [en]

The research presented addresses the emerging topic of AGVs (Automated Guided Vehicles) specifically related to industrial sites. The work presented has been carried out in the frame of the MALTA project (Multiple Autonomous forklifts for Loading and Transportation Applications), a joint research project between industry and university, funded by the European Regional Development and Robotdalen, in partnership with theSwedish Knowledge Foundation. The project objective is to create fully autonomous forklift trucks for paper reel handling. The result is expected to be of general benefit for industries that use forklift trucks in their material handling through higher operating efficiency and better flexibility with reduced risk for accidents and handling damages than if only manual forklift trucks are used. A brief overview of the state of the art in AGVs will be reported in order to better understand the new challenges and technologies. Among the emerging technologies used for vehicle automation, vision is one of the most promising in terms of versatility and efficiency, with a high potential to drastically reduce the costs.
