MAX-ES: An Embedded Software for Autonomous Industrial Vehicles

max-es

 

The experiment MAX-ES aims to develop, implement and test a navigation software for delivery robots in an industrial environment, with the objective to integrate fully autonomous unmanned vehicles in an industrial process. This raises some very challenging problems such as the robustness of the navigation for indoor and outdoor operations and the safety of goods and people.

MAX-ES is the first of its kind involving a robot for handling and delivering heavy loads in a realistic situation alongside other vehicles and pedestrians. In addition, MAX-ES will demonstrate the feasibility of implementing an autonomous form of logistic in an existing plant, without guiding infrastructures while staying in the existing road network.
