Autonomous forklift truck
Audi now plans to use autonomously guided forklift trucks within the packing operation for the delivery of small parts. This has several advantages: reduced space requirements, efficient transport processing and a lower risk of accidents at work. These advantages are the result of the interaction between innovative technologies such as a 3D laser scanner for navigation and several safety sensors. Scanner and sensors together create a 360-degree safety radius around the forklift truck.
